Smokey Bean Burgers
Makes 4 // 127 calories // 7.8 gr fiber // 7.5 gram protein
1 tbsp. ground flaxseed (found in the baking aisle of Walmart, by the fancy (Bob’s Red Mill) flours. It was like $3.88 a bag.)
3 tbsp. water
Mix the flaxseed and the water in a small bowl. Let sit for five minutes to thicken.
Then, add altogether:
The flaxseed/water mixture,
1 (15 oz) can of bean, drained and rinsed (you can use any black or red bean. I used pinto)
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tbsp. worcestershire sauce
1/8 tsp. liquid smoke (Steak sauce works well too.)
Mix well and form into four patties. Place on a plate and refrigerate for 30 minutes so it can set.
Then, cook in a nonstick pan (or lightly oiled pan) over medium heat for 5 mins or so each side.
You can put on a bun like a regular burger, a pita, a tortilla, or eat it with a fork. My sister puts salsa on hers, or ranch dressing instead of ketchup. The texture is a little different, but it’s not too much off of a regular (beef) burger. It is very filling!
