HL Café’s Black Bean Burgers

  • 2 cups cooked black beans, half pureed
  • 1/2 small green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 small red onion, minced
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup chickpea flour, plus more for coating
  • 1/2 cup tomato paste
  • 1 Tbsp dried basil
  • 1 Tbsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp coriander
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Heart-healthy and taste bud-friendly, our Café’s black bean burgers are bursting with flavor and ridiculously easy to make.  Double the recipe if you have a lot of mouths to feed and make sure you have a variety of toppings available- these burgers are amazingly versatile!

Preheat oven to 350°F.  In large bowl, mix all ingredients together.  Form into burger-sized patties, press each patty into extra chickpea flour on both sides (this will help the patties keep their shape), and bake on parchment-lined baking sheet until heated through and slightly crispy on the outside, about 5-10 minutes.  Serve with desired toppings and condiments on warm rolls.
