"No-Meat" Bean Burger Recipe

I've tried this recipe with chickpeas and pinto beans, as well as pinto beans and black beans and both turned out great.

INGREDIENTS: (recipe should make 6-8 patties/ use half cans for 4-5 patties)

1 can chickpeas โฃ

  • Rinse and drain beans. Blot them with a paper towel to remove any extra moisture. Place both beans in a large bowl and mash well with a fork. If too difficult, you can use a blender or food processor. Just do not over blend the beans. Keep some whole and rough.

  • Season beans. Add the bean "meat" mixture to a large bowl. Roughly ground oats and add to bowl.ย Add the chili/cayenne powder, coriander, paprika, and salt and pepper and stir to combine. Stir in bread crumbs if mixture is too wet and sticky.

  • Form patties.ย  Make the mixture into 4 or 5 patties.

  • Grill or bake. Grill the burgers on a well oiled grill for about 4-5 minutes on each side. Bake them at 375 degrees F on a lightly oiled baking sheet, for 10 minutes on each side.
