Homemade Bean Burgers
The easiest burgers you’ll ever make!
For one burger, combine 1/3 cup beans and 1 tbsp whole wheat flour. The starchier the beans, the better. Big beans like pinto work well, and dry beans like garbanzo do not. Add as many or as few seasonings as you like. I like some Worcestershire, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes, but feel free to add cumin, red curry powder, dill, hot sauce, BBQ sauce and more to taste. Feel free to also add chopped peppers, mushrooms or corn!
Mash everything together with a fork. This is HARD work. Just keep mashing. If you need to, add a half tsp of water until you get this:
Remove any jewelry
And form a patty like so:
Heat a flat skillet to medium high heat and spray with cooking spray. Plop down burger. Do not touch for 3-4 minutes.
Meanwhile, put bun in oven (Not that kind of bun you silly people!)
While burger cooks, make salad in its bowl!
And return jewelry to fingers
After 3-5 minutes, when you can shake burger loose in pan, flip. It should be lightly browned.
Give it another 3-4 minutes and plot onto dressed bun.
