Black Bean Patties
a good recipe for meatless Mondays
2 c black beans, canned or cooked, rinsed and drained
1 small onion, peeled and coarsely chopped
2 cloves fresh garlic
1 carrot, chopped fine or grated
1/2 c oats
1/4 c nut butter (almond, peanut)
1/4 c raw sunflower seeds
3 T flaxseeds
dash Worcestershire sauce
2 T olive oil
2 egg whites
pinch red pepper flakes
1/2 chopped celery leaves (I did not add since I didn't have any on hand, instead I added a dash of celery salt)
1 tsp paprika
1tsp curry powder
1 tsp sea salt
1 T fresh thyme or 1/2 T dried
Preheat oven to 375F. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper or grease. Place all ingredients in large food processor. Process mixture until it become uniform. You may have to do in bathces if you have a small food processor.
I added about 1/4c more oats as I though it was a bit runny, however it will probably seem a little runny, this is ok.
You should be able to scoop about 1/4 c patties onto cookie sheet without them runny too much.
Bake for about 20 minutes. Serve on whole wheat buns or bunless with all you burger fixins.
