Chipotle black bean Burgers/snacks/Salad toppings
2 cups cooked quinoa
1 15 oz can refried black beans(Trader Joes has a great non-fat one)
1/2 green bell pepper(I used 1 whole because it was small)
1/3 cup red onion
1 medium carrot, shredded
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped(I didn't have so didn't add:))
1/4 cup vegan mayonnaise(I used my mayo under my site's condiments section)
1/2 cup whole grain breadcrumbs(I used 2 pieces of Dave's bread toasted)
1 tsp chipotle seasoning
salt to taste
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Toast the bread for the bread crumbs and chop it up. Add the rest of the ingredients into a large bowl and toss in the breadcrumbs. When I made this recipe, it came out too wet because I used my mayo instead of store bought mayo and mine has no oil so it made the burgers wet so I added more bread crumbs(more like a whole cup) and I cooked the burgers for longer than 40 minutes.
Make patties(3 inch diameter and 1 inch thick) and cook them on a parchment paper or Silpat mat for 1 hour 10 minutes, flipping them halfway in between, after 35 minutes. If they are still wet bake for a bit more. Great chipotle flavor and are great a a snack or broken up on a salad, or as a burger but savory not sweet:)
