Phew!  After the holiday that started for us on Saturday and the onslaught of food it brought, we needed a bit of a break.  So we took a break from the leftovers and had burgers.  This recipe took less than 15 minutes start to finish and even my husband enjoyed them… as long as I promised that they would never replace the meat.  He declared them filling, which is something that you don’t often get out of my husband regarding meatless foods.  I loved them and they going on that ever-lengthening list of foods for me to eat at lunch!
Black Bean Burgers
  • 1 15 oz can of Black Beans
  • 1/3 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/3-1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 small carrot
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 cloves garlic

Peel the carrot, garlic and onion.  Roughly chop and then place in the bowl of a food processor.  Drain the black beans and rinse them.  Add them to the food processor.  Puree.  Add the bread crumbs and the seasonings.  Then, add the flour as needed until the puree is thick and will stick together into patties.   Heat some coconut oil (or another neutral oil) in a skillet and then place each patty in the oil.  Fry until the patty is crispy, about 1 minute.  Turn the patties and finish frying.  Serve on a bun as you would a “normal” burger, garnishing however makes you the happiest!
