Veggie burger patties
Why I Love This Recipe
This is for all you veggie lovers
Ingredients You'll Need
1/2 onion (chopped small)
1 (14-ounce) can black beans (well-drained)
1 cup bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
2-3 tsp chives
1/2 cup flour
Oil for frying (divided)
To a small frying pan over medium-high heat, add just enough oil to grease the bottom. Add the onions and sauté them until they are soft - about 3 to 5 minutes. In a large bowl, mash the beans until almost smooth. Add the sautéed onions to the mashed black beans, along with the crumbled bread, seasoned salt, garlic powder, and onion powder and chives, mixing to combine well.
Add the flour a few tablespoons at a time and mix to combine well. Your veggie burger mixture will be very thick (you may want to use your hands to work the flour in well).
Form the black bean mixture into individual patties, approximately 1/2-inch thick. The best way to do this is to roll a handful into a ball, then gently flatten it.
Fry your black bean patties in a small amount of oil over medium-low heat until slightly firm and lightly browned on each side, about 3 minutes. If your pan is too hot, your bean burgers will brown too quickly and not be heated through and cooked in the middle, so adjust the heat as needed.
