Black Bean Burgers

Here's What You Need

  • 2 cans black beans drained and rinsed, or 2 cups boiled (1 cup dried, soaked and boiled is about 2 cups)
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tbs. olive oil
  • ½ red onion, chopped.
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • ½ cup all purpose whole wheat flour
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tbs. fresh herbs like thyme and oregano, chopped, or ½ tbs. dried.

Here's What You Do

  1. In a food processor, process about ½ the beans and ½ tsp. salt until smooth.
  2. Put in a bowl and mix in the rest of the beans.
  3. Gently fry onion, garlic and cumin in oil until soft and fragrant.
  4. Add the flour to the onions and stir and cook for a few minutes. Add to beans and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  5. Form about 6 patties and refrigerate for about one hour (or overnight).
  6. Mix the rest of the flour with the herbs on a plate. Pre-heat the oven to 400F/ 200C.
  7. Press and coat each patty in the flour mixture.
  8. Fry in olive oil in the frying pan on medium-high, about 2 min on each side.
  9. Place the patties on baking paper on a tray, and cook in the oven for about 10 min. more.
