Chipotle Black Bean Burger
Make your next burger night meat-free! But make it full of flavor with this veggie chipotle black bean burger. These veggie burgers are packed with flavor and healthy ingredients like black beans, bell pepper and oats. Whiz them up in a food processor and bake for an easy meatless Monday dinner idea.
Add the bell pepper, onion, and garlic to the bowl of a food processor and pulse until chopped. (To make the burgers by hand, chop these ingredients with a knife instead).
Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl of a food processor and blitz until blended. (To make the burgers by hand, you can mash the beans with a fork or potato masher, and then add everything else. Mix with a large spoon or spatula).Let the mixture sit for 20 minutes to allow the oats and flour to soak up the moisture from the pepper, onion, egg and beans.
To Bake the burgers: Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C) Drop mixture by ½ cup portions onto a lined baking sheet. Shape each portion into a burger patty shape using a spoon. Bake for 25-30 minutes, flipping halfway through. Leave room between the patties so they bake and don't steam.
To Pan-Fry the burgers: Drop mixture by ½ cup portions into an oiled skillet over medium heat. Cook for 5-7 minutes per side or until cooked through and crispy outside.
Serve on a bun with your favorite toppings, such as lettuce, tomato, mayo, and red onion.
Notes – Add more oats, oat flour, or all-purpose flour if your mixture seems too wet. Bell peppers have lots of water so if you use a larger one, you'll need more oats.
Let the mixture sit for 20 minutes (at least) before cooking so the oats and flour have time to soak up the moisture.
My burgers stay together better when they are baked. Pan-fried burgers get a crispier outside but are a bit crumbly.
Substitutions – Use whatever color bell pepper you prefer. You can swap out the corn for peas.
Storage – Cooked patties will store in the fridge for 3-4 days.
