Impress your friends with homemade veggie burgers at your next cook out. These are easy to make so double or triple the recipe because they also freeze really well! Plus if you are sure to use gluten free oats, these are both gluten free and vegan.
1 16oz can black beans
1 16oz can kidney beans (white, light red, or dark red)
1/2 12oz jar roasted red peppers
1/2 large onion
5 cloves garlic
1 Tablespoon SB cooking oil
3 eggs worth of egg replacer
1 Tablespoon cumin
1 1/2 teaspoons chili garlic sauce or hot sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
ground black pepper to taste
1 3/4 cup rolled oats/ brown rice/ bread crumbs – (can be gluten-free)
Rinse canned beans and drain well.
Either in a large bowl with a fork and some arm strength or in a food processor mash the beans and SB cooking oil until no individual beans remain.
In a food processor pulse garlic cloves until minced and then add the onion chopping until super fine dice.
Add the roasted peppers to the food processor and pulse until the onion, garlic and peppers are fully combined.
Stir the mixture from the food processor into the mashed up beans.
Add the egg replacer, cumin, garlic chili sauce, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
Mix in the rolled oats until the mixture holds together and can be formed into patties. If it isn’t staying together try refrigerating the mixture for 30 minutes first and oiling your hands so it doesn’t stick to you. Divide into 8-10 patties.
Freeze patties on baking sheets and once frozen transfer to freeze bags. the patties can then either be grilled after brushing each side with a small amount of oil or baked at 375 for 10 minutes on each side.
Note: This recipe is really just a base, feel free to customize to suit your tastes and what you have on hand. Also, If you are having trouble getting the burgers to stay together trying freezing them first.
