Black Bean Burgers

This burger is the result of many years of experimentation. I think the taste and texture are excellent, and it’s all organic, whole-food goodness!

Black Bean Burgers

1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup whole-wheat flour
2 Tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
4 teaspoons flax seed meal
4 teaspoons dried parsley
1 Tablespoon onion powder
1 Tablespoon Italian seasoning
2 teaspoons celery seed
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried sage
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 large carrot, grated
8 ounces crimini mushrooms
2 cups cooked black beans
2 Tablespoons ketchup
2 teaspoons olive oil
8 whole wheat hamburger buns
8 slices tomato
8 slices onion

1. Grind the sunflower seeds in a food processor or blender; add to a large bowl.

2. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl and mix.

3. Grate the carrots and the mushrooms (or pulse in the food processor or blender) and add to the bowl.

4. Add the beans and the ketchup.

5. Mix and mash together well.

6. Form into 8 patties. You can use a 4″ jar lid lined with wax paper, or just form by hand.
