Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of black beans
  • 1/4 cup of finely chopped onions
  • 1/4 cup of finely chopped red bell peppers
  • 1/4 cup of panko bread crumbs
  • 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons of whole-wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper

Directions:

  • Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender.
  • Pulse a few times to mix well. (If the your machine is not blending well, add a few spoons of water and continuously stir the mixture with a spoon while the blender/food processor is off to get a consistent texture. Then continue pulsing)
  • After you get a consistent texture, scoop out the mixture into a bowl.
  • Form 4-5 patties with your hands. Sprinkle each side with some extra breadcrumbs for sturdiness. If you plan on eating them up right away, lightly oil a baking sheet and
    bake for 15 minutes on each side at 450F or until crisp and brown.
  • If you plan on storing them, you can either wrap each patty individually in plastic, or you can line each one with wax paper, and then stack them in a container. Then they can go right into the freezer! Whenever you’re ready, just de-frost and bake them.
