  • 1 16 oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 C red bell pepper, cut into 2″ pieces
  • 1/2 C chopped red scallions
  • 3T chopped cilantro
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 egg (I replaced the egg with 1/3 C applesauce)
  • 1 T cumin
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp hot sauce
  • 1/2 C quick oats
  1. Mash beans in bowl.
  2. In food processor, finely chop bell pepper, cilantro, onion, and garlic. Then add oats, egg, and spices.
  3. Stir in the mashed beans.
  4. Divide into 4 patties (use slightly oiled hands)
  5. Place on flat surface covered with parchment and freeze at least 2 hours before cooking.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes.

To grill, prebake for 30 minutes at 300 degrees and then grill to brown.

These are full of amazing flavor and they have a great texture!

Makes approximately 4 large burgers.
