the phony patty: spicy black bean burgers

>> Thursday, February 25, 2010

i got this recipe from one of my favorite foodie blogs, good things catered. i love veggie burgers because they are a great substitute to the real thing and still leave you feeling satisfied. the flavor combination in these babies was spot-on. the spicy chili garlic sauce is a must - i think i might add more next time though. try this recipe next time you're feeling the need to veg out.

2 (14oz) cans low-sodium black beans, drained and rinsed well
1/2 medium yellow onion
1/2 large green pepper, seeds discarded
2 large garlic cloves
1 medium carrot
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 teaspoon spicy chili garlic sauce (add more if you like it hot)
1 egg
1/4 c. herbed bread crumbs

preheat oven to 350 degrees and line baking sheet with parchment. in bowl of food processor, add onion, green pepper, carrot and garlic. pulse to combine well and mince ingredients. remove from food processor bowl and place in fine mesh strainer to strain off excess liquid. in medium to large bowl, place rinsed and dried black beans and smash into paste with fork. add remaining ingredients and stir to combine well. using hands, shape mixture into place bun-sized patties and place onto baking sheet. bake for 25-30 minutes, or until edges have crisped up and burgers are cooked through. we topped the burgers with tomato, avocado and lettuce, but feel free to add anything you like - brother added cheddar cheese and sour cream because he thought they smelled like tacos (from the cumin).  i also served roasted garlic potatoes on the side. eat up!
