I based these Veggie Black Bean Burgers off a recipe I saw in a Raw (un)cook book. I don’t have a dehydrator, so I had to bake them. They turned out really well, though!
1 1/3 c. black beans, cooked
1/2 c. carrots (1 medium carrot), chopped
1/4 c. onion, chopped
1/2 c. mushrooms, sliced
1/2 c. red bell pepper (or any color)
1 c. mixed greens (baby kale, baby spinach, arugula, etc.), chopped
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 clove of garlic
A few dashes of rosemary, basil, and oregano, dried
Preheat oven to 425°F. Line pan with parchment paper. Put all of the ingredients into the food processor. Process until smooth, but not too smooth. You want it to be a little chunky, but sticking together.
When the mixture is at the right consistency, scoop out 1/4 cup, and shape into a patty. Place as many as you make onto the lined pan.
When the oven is preheated, put them in the oven for 12 min. Flip them, then put them back in another 12 min. Take them out immediately, so they don’t burn.
Yields: About 8 patties
I haven’t tried freezing these, yet, but if you do, tell me how they turn out in the comments!
These are great with my Baked Healthy Hash Browns or Raw Carrot Fries!
