The Amazing Black Bean Burger
Order Up! We've created the Ultimate Burger. It's so good, you'd never believe it was meat & allergy-free. There are many black bean burgers recipes out there, but ours had the right taste and texture. Go Head and Enjoy "Meat" Again ^^
1 1/2 cups of red Quinoa
1 16 oz can of Black Beans
1/4 of a medium yellow onion
1/8 of a cup of lemon juice
2 green onions
1 red chill pepper
1 clove of garlic
3 stalks of cilantro
1 tsp of cumin
1/2 tsp of basil
1/4 tsp of turmeric
3/4 of a tsp oregano
1/2 of red pepper flakes
a dash of ginger root and thyme
Olive Oil and Thyme- to coat the burgers
1) In a rice cooker or pot prepare 1 1/2 cup of Red Quinoa (follow the directions on the box) and set aside.
2) Open 1 can of black beans, drain, rinse and place in food processor.
3) Then add Lemon Juice and blend.
4) Rinse and Chop: the yellow onion, green onion, mushroom, chill pepper, garlic, and cilantro. Then place in food processor, and blend.
5) Add spices and blend again.
6) When finished, place the blended beans in a large bowl, then start adding the Red Quinoa, the mixture should be nice an thick- an even ratio of beans to Quinoa.
7) Place the bowl in the refrigerator for about 1 hour or longer. This will make sure that our "meat" is nice and firm.
8) After the mixture has become firm, remove bowl from the refrigerator.
Now it's time to make the patties:
1) Take a small handful of the mixture and start shaping into burger patties.
(Don't make them too thin)
2) Coat the top of the patties with olive oil either with a brush or rub with fingers.
(Optional sprinkle tops with thyme)
1) In a non-stick baking pan, coat with oil or spray. Place the patties in the pan.
2) Bake patties at 350 degrees for 1 hr. Flip at sides at 30 mins, or when the top gets crunchy.
When finished- Take your favorite Gluten-Free Buns, add mustard, ketchup, lettuce, tomato and onion Voila, Burgers ^.^
Stay tuned for homemade gluten-free buns, hotdogs, and much more....
(Patties can be stored in the freezer for future use.)
