This recipe is from a friend of a friend, and it is the BEST veggie burger recipe I’ve tried so far! I baked them for longer than recommended since I wanted them to be crisp on the outside, but aside from that I followed the recipe and I plan to add this one to my binder of “keeper” recipes!
Black Bean Veggie Burgers
1 (16 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 green bell pepper
3 cloves garlic
1 tbsp. chili powder
1 tbsp. cumin
1 tsp. Thai sauce or hot sauce (I used Sriracha)
1/2 c. bread crumbs
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and lightly oil a baking sheet (or use cooking spray). In a medium bowl, mash black beans with a fork until thick and pasty.
In a food processor, finely chop bell pepper, onion, and garlic. Then stir into mashed beans.
In a small bowl, stir together egg, chili powder, cumin and chili sauce.
Stir egg mixture into the mashed beans. Mix in bread crumbs until mixture is sticky and holds together. Divide mixture into four patties.
Place patties on baking sheet and bake about 10-20 minutes on each side.
