Ron and I are experimenting with vegan recipes, so we have been dreaming up all sorts of meal options. Here is a recipe for a black bean burger made from scratch that takes 5 minutes to put together and tastes pretty heavenly!
Ingredients (makes 12 patties):
1 15-oz can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 28-oz can of whole tomatoes (unstrained)
3 cloves of garlic
tablespoon of onion powder
tablespoon or garlic powder
1/4 of a yellow onion
3 cups of oats
oregano to taste
crushed red pepper to taste
vegan Daiya mozzarella cheese is optional
Put the black beans, carrot, onion, tomatoes, in a food processor and chop thoroughly. Add mixture to bowl with oats and seasoning, mix by hand and let rest for two minutes. Pre-heat a non-stick skillet on medium low. Use a 1/3 cup scoop for each pattie. Place pattie on skillet and flatten, cook on each side for five minutes.
Tastes great with a dijon mustard & soy sauce mix for dip. Enjoy!
