The meaty taste of the black beans, combined with chipotle chile pepper seasoning, makes these burgers a hot Daniel Fast menu item.
Chipotle Black Bean Burgers
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup mashed cooked sweet potatoes (about 1 large sweet potato, peeled)
¼ cup oat flour (see Recipe Notes) or brown rice flour
½ tablespoon dried parsley
¼ teaspoon chipotle chile pepper seasoning
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to broil setting. With a potato masher or fork, mash black beans in a large bowl, leaving about ¼ of the beans whole. Mix in sweet potatoes, oat flour, parsley, chipotle chile pepper seasoning, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Scoop out 1/3 cup of bean mixture, and place on an 11 x 17-inch baking sheet that has been rubbed with olive oil. Flatten and shape into a circle with spatula. Repeat with the remaining bean mixture to make 6 burgers.
Broil 4 inches from heat about 7-8 minutes or until golden brown. Flip burgers carefully with spatula. Broil 2-3 more minutes, and serve.
Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 burger)
- Make your own oat flour by placing old-fashioned rolled oats in a food processor or blender and process until fine (1 cup old-fashioned oats will yield about 3/4 cup ground oats).
