Veggie Burger Patty
PREP TIME30 min
COOK TIME15 min
1 c. uncooked organic brown rice
2 Tbsp. organic olive oil, separated
1/2 organic red onion, chopped
2 organic garlic cloves
1/4 lb. organic cremini mushrooms
2.5 c. cooked organic black beans*
1/2 tsp. organic chili powder
1/2 tsp. sea salt
*It's cheaper to buy dry beans and cook them yourself than to buy beans by the can.
Cook brown rice per the instructions on the package.
Heat 1 Tbsp. of the olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic and sauté until the onion is transparent. Add mushrooms and sauté until soft and starting to brown, about 5 minutes.
Place 3/4 of your black beans in a food processor and blend until smooth. Add mushroom mixture, brown rice, chili powder and sea salt. Pulse until coarsely mixed together. Empty contents of food processor into a bowl and gently stir in the remaining black beans. With slightly wet hands, form mixture into four patties.
Heat remaining oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Cook the patties on each side until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Serve with your favorite condiments such as whole grain mustard, organic ketchup, sauerkraut, sriracha, or olive oil and vinegar.
