Black Bean, Mushroom Vege Burger
Spicy vege based “burger” patties!
Ground flax seed
(Add 4-6 Tbs of water to create “flax eggs”)
(Consider pulsing the oats so it doesn’t get too fine)
Caribbean Jerk Marinade
(I use Lowry’s)
(Sprinkle on prior to cooking to taste)
Start by mixing the flax with 2-4 Tbs of water in a bowl and set to the side.
Dice onion and mushrooms. “Water” sauté in a non-stick pan until water is completely gone.
Use food processor or high speed mixer to grind Oats to a slightly “chunky” consistency. Set aside next to flax eggs.
Drain and rinse beans. Then in a mixing bowl use potato masher and mash to a “chunky” consistency.
Put it all together. In your mixing bowl add Beans, flax “eggs”, onions and mushrooms, Oats, cumin and carribean jerk marinade. Mix well to a chunky wet paste.
Cut 6″ x 6″ wax paper squares. Scoop out batter on to each square and form the burger shape and thickness you want.
I use our griddle set to 400 degree’s (pre-heated). Then using the wax paper for handling the patties, flip the patty on to the griddle. Peal off the wax paper and discard. Repeat for all patties.
Cook patties for about 4 minutes per side, then flip the patties for an additional 2 minutes.
