Vegan black bean burger with Sriracha mayo and avocado.

Probably the tastiest yet easiest black bean burger I have ever made.  All simple ingredients, comes together very quickly and cooks up even faster.  I prefer my burgers mildly spicy, with just a hint of spice. If you like more spice, increase the sriracha to 1.5 tablespoons.  Taste the mix as you go.

Serves 4 if you make each patty with a 1/2 cup measuring cup.    You’ll need a food processor.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 yellow onion roughly chopped
  • 1 TBS sriracha (or more depending on your tolerance for spice)
  • 1.5 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 can black beans, drained
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 TBS oats (I use quick oats)
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced (omit if you don’t have)
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp curry powder
  • (**don’t add to food processor) 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs

Directions:

Pulse the onion, sriracha and garlic in the food processor. Just about 5-6 pulses.  Then add the rest of the ingredients (NOT THE BREADCRUMBS) and pulse again about 5-7 times again.  You want the mixture rough – not pasty – so don’t over process.

Cover the mixture and let chill for about 30 minutes (the longer the better).  Then, add in the bread crumbs and mix all together.  Use a 1/2 cup measuring cup to scoop out your burger patties.  Cook about 5 minutes the first side and only about 2.5 minutes the second side.  Keep your eye on them.  If you’re using a higher flame the 5 minutes will be too long.  I used a low-medium flame.

For the sriracha mayo, I mixed together 3 TBS Earth Balance mindful mayo with 1.5 TBS sriracha.  Again, more sriracha if you like really spicy.  Enjoy!
