SANTA FE BLACK BEAN BURGER
Easy to make and filling as can be, this hearty burger can stand alone topped with salsa and avocado. Pair it with a nice salad or place it on a bed of quinoa if you don’t want to make it a burger.
- Prep Time: 10 min
- Cook Time: 10 min
- Total Time: 20 minutes
- Yield: Makes 2 jumbo patties 1x
- Category: Entree
- Cuisine: Vegan
- 1 can (14 oz) organic black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1/4 cup oats (I use GF)
- 1/4 cup whole wheat flour, or flour of choice*
- 3/4 teaspoon cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon himalayan salt
- 1/4 cup chunky salsa or pico de gallo, give or take
- 1 tablespoon sesame or olive oil
- cornmeal, for dusting (I used coarse grind) (optional)
In a medium size bowl mash black beans with a strong fork or use a potato masher, leaving some chunks for texture if you like.
Add oats, flour, spices, salt and salsa, mix again, feel free to use your hands if you like too. If mixture is too wet, add more flour to the mix but really it should be ok.
Shape your patties into whatever size you like. I like to make two good size patties or three smaller ones. Give a light dusting of corn meal if you have it, it will give a nice crunch, flavor, and cook up crispy.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a skillet on medium. Cook for about 5 five minutes each side. It’s ok if the cornmeal gets a little crispy. Trust me it’s delicious!
Serve with your choice of accompaniments such as red onion slices, leafy greens, and/or salsa. Add some mashed avocado as spread, or sliced avocado if you prefer. Or serve on a bed of leafy greens.
Makes 2 jumbo sized patties, or 3 – 4 smaller ones.
To make gluten free, sub in gluten free all-purpose flour, oat flour, rice or almond flour. I use the gluten free all-purpose flour with great success.
You can easily make extras and refrigerate for snacking, lunches and/or dinners later.
