Black Bean Burgers
I was inspired to make black bean burgers after seeing them posted on Oh My Veggies recently. I clicked over to the original recipe on MyRecipes.com and decided to double the recipe so we’d have plenty of leftovers for the beginning of the week’s dinners. I made a few tweaks, so my simplified recipe is here:
Ingredients (makes 8 patties)
2 (15oz) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1 chopped yellow onion
1/2 cup chopped white button mushrooms
2 tbsp minced garlic
2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
2 eggs, lightly beaten
A few dashes of dried thyme and oregano
Burger buns (I used bagel thins)
Preheat oven to 425.
Place beans in a large bowl and fork mash. Stir in onion and next 8 ingredients. Divide mixture into 8 patties.
Arrange patties on baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 425 for 6 minutes; turn and bake for 6 minutes more.
These were very flavorful and paired with some roasted cauliflower on the side, they were also very filling. I had never tried the bagel thins I found at Trader Joe’s before, but liked using them as a bun because I was able to actually taste the bean burger instead of a big mouthful of bread!
