Bean Burgers

It’s summer! It’s BBQ season! If you’re a vegetarian, backyard cookouts can be quite frustrating.

You could always BYOB (Bring Your Own Burger) and not the frozen hockey puck ones from the grocery store. You could make your own; like these awesome bean burgers.

2 cans 15.5 ounces each red kidney beans, rinsed and drained

1 medium carrot, peeled and shredded

1 tsp chili poweder

1 tsp dried oregano

3/4 cup breadcrumbs (gluten-free if that is an issue for you)

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

Dash of hot sauce

Salt and pepper to taste

Fixins – The possibilities here are endless, sliced avocado, sliced red onion, grilled onion, lettuce and tomato, sour cream, cheese of your choice; go ahead and go wild!

1. Lightly mash beans in a large bowl. Add carrot, chili powder, oregano, breadcrumbs, eggs, hot sauce, and salt and pepper. Stir until thoroughly combined. Divide into 4 portions and make patties.

2. You can certainly grill these if this is in fact a BBQ, or, you can make them on the stove top. Just heat 2 TBSP of oil in a nonstick skillet. Add patties and cook until bottom forms a browned crust and most of the oil is absorbed, about 10 – 12 minutes. Flip patties and add another TBSP of oil. Cook until browned on the other side, another 8 – 10 minutes. Serve with or without buns with toppings of your choice.

Enjoy!

Take care of yourself, be nice to yourself, and be well, And until next time – veg in, don’t veg out!
