Kate's Grillable Black Bean Burgers
1/4 cup onion, grated
1/4 cup red pepper, grated
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/4-1/2 teaspoon dried red pepper
1/4-1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4-1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon basil
1 tablespoon parsley
1/2 cup almonds, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup sunflower seeds, coarsely chopped
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 (15 1/2 ounce) can black beans
2 tablespoons water
3/4 cup wheat germ
1. Add onion and red pepper to a large bowl. Preheat grill. Combine the garlic, spices, almonds, sunflower seeds, and oil in a food processor and pulse until texture resembles bread crumbs.
2. Transfer mixture to the bowl. Put the black beans and water in the food processor and process until smooth.
3. Add this mixture to the bowl along with the wheat germ. Mix (preferably with your hands) completely.
4. Separate into 5 balls and shape into patties. Make sure the patties are not too thin or they will fall apart. Grill for 8 minutes on each side, or until slightly browned. Enjoy with your favorite burger fixings.
