Easy Black Bean Sliders
By using a bag of frozen veggies, condiments and spices I'll bet you use have laying around your kitch anyway, you can whip up these Easy Black Bean Burgers in a flash. A great way to introduce your friends to “vegan food”....
- 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed
- 3 tablespoons of water
- 8 oz bag of frozen veggies (any combination of vegetables will work)
- 2 15 oz can of black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 TBS ketchup
- 2TBS mustard (any kind)
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp chili powder
- 1 cup whole grain rolled oats
- salt/pepper to taste
Preheat your oven to 350-F.
In a small bowl, combine the flax and water. Stir and allow to sit for 10 minutes, this will become your "egg" that will help bind your burger.
Defrost the vegetables and set aside.
Place the beans, condiments and spices in to a food processor and pulse a few times until well integrated, but not pureed. Add in the vegetables and the oats. Pulse 2-3 more times. Finally add in the flax egg and pulse a few more times until everything is well mixed, but still keeping some black beans and vegetables in tact. Form your burgers (or sliders) and place them on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, flip and continue to bake for another 17. If you are making sliders (small burgers), cook for 5 minutes less on each side.
No need to buy oat flour! Dry blend oats in a blender until a flour-like consistency is reached.
Sneak some greens in by chopping up baby spinach and mixing in with your burgers.
