If you are looking for a healthier burger this is it. With all natural ingredients this is one cool burger and it will soon become your favorite… It only takes a bite or two!!!
Black Bean Burgers
1 (15 oz. 425 g.) can of black beans, drained
2 medium carrots, raw chopped
1 medium ripe tomatoes, chopped
1 large egg
1 cup original breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon dry parsley flakes
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
2 dashes of pepper
2 tablespoons of canola oil for frying (or you can skip this part and grill and only lightly brush burgers with oil)
Combine drained beans, carrots, tomato and egg in a food processor and process until well blended. You want the mixture to be smooth, but have a bit of chunks still.
Transfer the mixture into a bowl, add in seasonings and breadcrumbs. Combine everything and divide into 6 portions. Make patties out of each portion.
In a large skillet heat oil over medium/high heat. Add in patties and cook about 5 minutes per side or until they form a crunchy outside.
If you are grilling your burgers, just brush them lightly with oil on each side and grill for 5 minutes per side as well.
This recipe makes about 6 average size burgers. Serve them on a burger bun with toppings of choice (tomatoes, lettuce, avocado slices, cheese spread, mayo, salsa… and so on).
