Black Beans = The Bomb

Steve has been requesting bean burgers FOREVER!  Somehow they never made the cut on the weekly menu plan.  But tonight things changed.  Bean burgers will be a staple in this house.  Especially the black bean variety.

These were extremely easy to make and were creamy and delicious.

Combine:

  • 1 can black beans
    • rinsed, drained, and mashed
  • 1/2 green pepper, 1/4 large onion, and 3 cloves garlic,
    • roughly chopped, sautéed, and then minced in a food processor

*The sautéing is an extra step, but I wouldn’t eliminate it.  I sauté peppers and onions whenever I get the chance because I love the sweetness instead of the bite.

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper

Mash it all together and form 4 patties.  Bake at 375 degrees for 8 minutes on each side.  Add cheese at the end and warm for a few more minutes to melt.
