Vegetarian Black Bean Burger Recipe
Now that summer is here, that means one thing: cookouts! It's easy to overdo it and overindulge when cooking out with friends, but this vegetarian black bean burger recipe will still leave your taste buds watering without the added saturated fat.
¼ cup rolled oats
1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
¼ teaspoon lime zest
¾ tsp chili powder
¼ tsp salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 garlic clove, crushed
½ yellow onion, chopped
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp chopped fresh oregano
Pulse the oats in a food processor until fine. Transfer into a large bowl with breadcrumbs, zest, chili powder and salt. Whisk together ingredients. Combine beans, garlic and onions in the food processor and pulse until mixture becomes a thick paste. Scrape bean mixture into the oat and breadcrumb bowl and mix with a spatula. Add the egg and oregano and stir until just combined. With moistened hands, divide the bean mixture into 4 equal portions and shape each into a 3-inch patty. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet or the grill over medium heat. Add patties to pan and cook until bottom edges are browned, about 4 minutes. Carefully turn patties over and cook 3 minutes longer or until bottom edges are browned.
Viola! Tasty burgers with less fat. What do you think? Will you be trying these at your next cook out?
