Black Bean and Oatmeal Burgers

Though I’m not a vegetarian, I do enjoy a lot of meatless dishes, including vegetarian “burgers”. I do NOT like the frozen, pre-packaged ones available at the store, though. Considering how easy and quickly homemade meatless burgers can be made, I can’t imagine paying so much for what is STILL a processed food (seriously, look at the ingredients for Boca & MorningStar). I love black bean burgers since they still have such a meaty flavor, but without any meat at all! 

This recipe is not only delicious, healthy (low GI!!) and filling, but very budget friendly. If you have a food processor, you can have the burgers on the table in minutes.

I like to serve these on wheat sandwich thins, topped with avocado, sprouts, or a simple slice of tomato. 

1 15oz can black beans, drained & rinsed
1 14.5oz can diced tomatoes w/ green chilies (Rotel)
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 tsp onion powder
2 scallions, chopped
1 cup shredded carrots
1 cup cilantro, chopped
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Process the beans, tomatoes, garlic, onion powder, scallions, carrots and cilantro in a food processor until well-blended. Fold in oats and stir to combine. Form into patties and place on a baking sheet.
Bake patties for 10 minutes, then turn on the broiler and toast for 2 minutes.
