After finishing 6 dozen veggie burgers John brought home from a freezer in a restaurant that he demolished  this June, I craved more veggie burgers. I don’t particularly like tofu burgers, so I tried to make some bean burgers and like how these came out.

  • 2 TBSPs canola oil
  • .5 cup diced onions
  • 1.5 cups cooked and drained black beans, canned okay
  • .5 cup grated carrots
  • .5 cup bread crumbs*
  •  .25 cup corn meal
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 1 tsp cumin-ptional
  • 4 TBSPs vegetable broth
  1. Saute onions in 1 TBSP of the oil until carmelized.
  2. Combine beans, carrots, cornmeal, breadcrumbs, beans, onions and spices in a large bowl.
  3. Add the water and mix well with your hands, kind of smushing(sp?) together the beans with everything else
  4. Make 10 burgers, aprroximately 3 TBSPs each.
  5. Cook the burgers using the remaining oil in a cast iron frying pan on low/medium for about 5 minutes on each side.
  6. Enjoy.

* You can make bread crumbs by toasting bread and then crumbling it with your      hands.
