Ready Time

20 mins

Yields

6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups cooked black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 minced garlic clove
  • 1/4 cup grated carrot
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Instructions

Add the black beans, brown rice, oats, onion, garlic, carrot, parsley, tomato paste, smoked paprika, chili powder, and cumin to a food processor. Process until the mixture is well combined and slightly chunky.

Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Using your hands, shape the mixture into 6 patties. Heat the olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.

Add the patties and cook for about 4-5 minutes per side, until they’re golden brown and crispy on the outside, and cooked through.

Notes

Make sure to cook and season the black beans beforehand, as they need to be cool enough to handle when processing. If using canned black beans, drain and rinse them well to remove excess sodium.

Don’t overprocess the mixture, as it can become too fine and dense, making the patties hard to shape.

Use a gentle hand when shaping the patties, so you don’t compact the mixture too much, which can make them dense and heavy. Don’t be afraid to get creative with the spice blend – add or substitute different spices to give the burgers your personal flavor.

If the patties start to break apart while cooking, don’t worry! Just gently press them back together with your spatula and continue cooking.

These burgers freeze well, so consider making a double batch and storing them in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Simply thaw and reheat when you’re ready.
