Craving a burger but looking for a healthier version?  Below you will find a recipe cooked up and shared by Moshe Prystowsky.  If you’re a fan of Bob’s Burgers, then you know that they always have clever burger titles so this post’s title was my attempt at one of those.  🙂

(Keep in mind this wasn’t done by a recipe and so a lot of things were thrown in willy nilly.)

“Bean There Done That” Black Bean Burger Recipe

Black Beans (1 1/2 cans)
Sweet potatoes (a few spoonfuls finely diced)
Onions (finely diced)
Kale (a few cupfuls cooked down and added to the mix)
Red pepper (one half of the pepper, finely diced)
4 baby Bella mushrooms (sliced and diced)
Garlic to taste
Breadcrumbs (half a cup)
Cornstarch (a tablespoons)
A smidgen of each of these: about 1tsp each
Onion powder
Cumin powder
Garlic powder
Coriander powder
Turmeric powder
Salt
Pepper

Mash all of these ingredients together and give it a sample- you might need to add a little more of the seasoning depending on your taste. After this, add one egg. Form patties, and place on wax paper. Let them sit in the freezer for about 30 minutes and then cook in a skillet with coconut oil or a light oil til nicely browned. Then fix up your burger!  You can avoid extra carbs and a bunch of extra calories by making a lettuce wrap burger instead of using the traditional bun and using mustard and low-caloric condiments instead of mayonnaise.

 

Happy eating!
