Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 15 oz can of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 3/4 cup of gluten free oats (or gluten free breadcrumbs)
  • 3/4 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
  • 2 tbsp chopped green chilies
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 3/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 23 tbsp olive oil

Instructions

  1. Put all ingredients except for the olive oil in a food processor and blend until a thick paste is formed.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a bowl, cover and freeze for 15-20 minutes (this will help the mixture thicken up so it’s easier to work with).
  3. In a large pan, heat olive oil over medium high heat.
  4. Once the oil is hot, use a large cookie scoop to scoop the mixture into the pan. Gently press down on the scooped mixture to form patties.
  5. Cook the patties on each side for 3-5 minutes each.
  6. Continue cooking on each side until they have darkened and become crispy.
  7. Serve on a bun, in a tortilla, in a salad, over some quinoa, or all by themselves.

To Freeze and Cook Later

  1. Put all ingredients except for the olive oil in a food processor and blend until a thick paste is formed.
  2. Scoop the black bean mixture into a gallon-sized plastic freezer bag and freeze for up to to three months.
  3. When ready to cook, thaw overnight in refrigerator.
  4. Follow cooking directions above.
