Happy Thursday Everyone! Who's ready for a burger?
So after tossing out the turkey, I decided to get creative and make some healthy black bean burgers instead. Bun-less or not, these things are packed with protein and nutrients and I highly recommend you make these!
Black Bean Burgers
2 cans of organic black beans
1/2 yellow onion minced
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1 tablespoon gluten free all purpose flour (this recipe is good without this as well)
1 teaspoon mustard
2 garlic cloves
2 teaspoons black pepper
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
Drain black beans.
In a blender or food processor toss in all ingredients.
Blend together until smooth
In a non stick pan, use spray olive oil and turn up to medium heat.
Roll out a few spoon fulls of the burger mix into dusted flour.
Cook for about 3 minutes on each side. Serve with a little melted mozzarella or rice cheese (if your vegan!) and a little sriracha. I also sauteed a bit of spinach and had some sliced tomato with it.
