my famous black bean burgers

IMG_6986.jpeg

we meet again!

ugh i have to say this right off the bat…i do not own flashy lights or a professional camera sooooo its a challenge to take pictures with lighting that looks “natural”. i quickly googled “how to fake daylight in your pictures” and i only read about one thing and realized, just go for it!

(heres your sign to just go for it!)

the whole reason as to why i decided to make black bean burgers is because i fell into the costco trap and thought that eight cans of black beans for six bucks was a deal. well. i have now have enough black beans for everyone on my street.

if you want to know anything about me, when i create MY OWN recipes…(yes, i actually didnt copy anyone this time lol) i never measure. i cannot tell you how many times a friend has ask me for a recipe and i truly cannot tell them how. i normally say something along the lines of: “i pour enough of this”, “i add two long drops of that”, no. no one understands that.

so guys, this is a big deal. i took the time, i measured everything so i could share it with you!

what youll need:

  • 1 can of black beans, drained
  • 1 egg
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 garlic gloves
  • 2 tbsp. flax seed (i used golden)
  • 2 tbsp. parsley
  • 1 tbsp. lime juice
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper ( i used 1/4 tsp. because i like it spicy)
  • 1/2 cup oats

i used a food processor but if you dont have one, use a blender. i used a blender for this recipe for a lonnnnng time before i got a good processor.

and literally, dump everything into the food processor and mix until blended.

trust me, youll know when its blended. its not going to turn into liquid if you “over do it”.

from here, form your patties. i normally make two huge ones for nick and i but you can get three-four outta one can (obvi, youll have to eat more than just a black bean burger).

once your patties are formed, cook them over medium heat for about 15 minutes on each side. i used my middle griddle thing that came with my stove and its non stick so i didnt oil. if your pan isnt non stick, use oil. i know,  you know your pots better than anyone else.
