homemade black bean burgers

I’m excited to share a recipe that Jon and I made Thursday night for dinner.  It was all his idea, and he found the recipe in The Eat Clean Diet Recharged (the book that changed my life:).  So, without further ado…

Paradise Island Bean Burgers

Ingredients

  • 1 cup black beans, rinsed, drained and mashed
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice1 clove garlic (passed through garlic press) (I just used minced garlic to save time)
  • 2 tbsp leeks, whites only, finely chopped (I used onions b/c I didn’t have any leeks on hand)
  • 2 tbsp cooked and mashed sweet potato
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp evoo
  • 4 ezekiel buns, toasted

Method

  • Mix all ingredients except the olive oil and buns in a large bowl.  Coat clean hands with olive oil to mix.
  • Divide mixture into equal fourths.  Shape into patties.
  • Heat grill pan over medium flame and coat lightly with oil.  Add patties and cook five minutes per side or until the patties are golden and crispy
  • Serve on toasted burger buns.

I topped mine off with some (previously) homemade guacamole, a little bit of hot sauce, some greens, a slice of tomato and some pickles.  Obvs. with a side of baked sweet potato fries.   This meal was super tasty.  The bean burger itself could have used a little bit heavier dose of spices in my opinion, but overall it was pretty tasty.   It was pretty quick to put together, too!
