Veggie Burger Recipe

As we all know burgers are so good, why not turn it into something healthy for you: Veggie burger. I know when you think veggie burger you think it will probably think it will taste like cardboard but not this one. Your family wont know the difference.
Here is a great recipe:


2 cups ( one 14- ounce can) black beans, red beans or chickpeas, drained

1 medium onion, quartered

1/2 cup rolled oats

1 tbs. chilli powder

salt for taste

freshly ground black pepper for taste

1 egg

Bean-cooking liquid, as needed

1 tbs. olive oil or neutral oil, like grapeseed or corn for cooking

How to Make:

Step 1: Place the beans, onions, oats, chilli powder, salt, pepper and egg in a food processor and pulse until chunky but not pureed; if it seems dry or not sticking together well, add a little liquid ( a tablespoon at a time). You want it ro me moist but not wet. Let it sit in the fridge for a few minutes.

step 2: With wet hands, shape into patties, refrigerate for 15-20 minutes

Step 3: Heat a large skillet or griddle ( whatever you have) over middle heat and add just enough oil to coat the bottom of pan. When its hot, add the patties and cook until they are nicely browned on one side ( about 5 minutes) turn over carefully and cool on the other side until firm and browned ( another 5 minutes). Serve on buns and make sure you have everyones favorite burger fixings!
