Way more delicious than veggie burgers from the frozen foods section of your grocery store. And just about as easy, too!
Mexican Black Bean Spinach Burgers (vegan)
(makes 2 patties)
- 3/4 C black beans (rinsed and drained)
- 1/2 C fresh spinach
- 1/4 C whole wheat flour
- 2 Tbsp. oats
- 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
- 2 tsp. olive oil
- 1/2 tsp. cumin
- 1/2 tsp. chili powder
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 small garlic clove
Toss it all into a food processor and whirl away! Once it’s mixed, form into two patties. Toss them onto a skillet (or a grill) coated with cooking oil/spray and cook on medium high for about 5 minutes, flipping at least once until they have a bit of a crust on them. Serve atop salad or on a whole wheat bun with toppings!
I originally created these veggie burgers for a class project. Check out the original post for lots more photos and details! And here is the follow up post where we make the burgers on site at UNC hospitals!
