Sometimes the thought of something other than beef in a burger is refreshing. It changes it up and gives a bit of a twist to your dinner. Plus I think beef burgers are best served on a bun, and these black bean burgers, well they turned more into patties.
Oh, hello, doesn’t that just look delicious.
I love mixing up my meals and doing something a little different. I really like using beans as an alternative to meat (not that I don’t like meat but beans are a little less fussy and more versatile).
So gives this a try, I think it has just enough flavor to qualify as almost meat.
Black Bean “Burgers”
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup oats
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 T soy sauce
1/2 t salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grind oats in a food processor or blender. Pour beans into a bowl and smash with a back of a fork or mash potato smasher to your desired consistency. Add in oats and seasonings and combine.
Form into patties and place on a baking sheet. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes on each side.
Serve on buns, with rice and veggies or however you desire!
