Black Bean Veggie Burgers
1/2 Medium Yellow Onion
1 can Black Beans (15.5 oz Drained and Rinsed)
1/2 tsp Cumin, Chili powder, salt, and pepper
1/2 tbl minced Garlic
1/2 cup Bread Crumbs (I like whole wheat Panko)
1/4 cup ground Flax Seed
Buns (your preference, I used the sandwich skinnys)
I have a very tiny food processor, I had a large old school one at one point, but it stopped working. I tell you this because I had to food process each veggie separately, but you may be able to do the zucchini, onion, and beans at once, and if you don’t have a good processor a blender will work also.
Chop up the zucchini into large chunks and food process.
Empty into a bowl, and chop and food process the onion. Then empty the onion and then blend the beans.
Now all your blended items should be in one bowl.
(as a side note, here is my cute fall spatula)
To your blended items add the spices, garlic, egg, bread crumbs, and flax seed.
If you don’t have flax seed just add more bread crumbs.
Refridgerate until you are ready to cook, at least 10 minutes.
Heat skillet over medium high heat, once the pan is hot add 1/2 tbl olive oil and cook each burger for about 4 minutes on each side.
My kids topped theirs with ketchup and pickles. My favorite toppings are hummus, feta cheese, and banana peppers.
You could also add corn to the patty’s and go with a little mayo-siracha combo. The possibilities are endless.
