This chipotle bean burger works on so many levels. I love a good beef burger but thought I’d switch things up and create a great bean burger. It also allowed me to add in some extra nutrition at the same time! Popping the beans in the oven for 15 minutes before preparing is the key to the great texture of this burger. No mushy, strange texture here!
This recipe includes some powerful flavor boosters including feta cheese, sautéed onions, garlic, pablano pepper, and chipotle pepper.
- 2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
- ½ medium onion, finely chopped
- 1 large poblano pepper, finely chopped (or 2 for an extra kick)
- 3 medium cloves garlic, minced
- 1 chipotle chili in adobo sauce, finely chopped - if you like spicy add another chipotle chili
- ½ cup finely crumbled feta cheese
- 2 tablespoons plain yogurt
- ¾ rolled oats (place in food processor)
- ½ tsp. apple cider vinegar
- Pinch Sea salt
- Pinch Black pepper
- Cheese as desired, such as gouda
- Toppings as desired, lettuce, caramelized onions, and pickles (bubbas pickles have no vinegar) bacon, avocado
- Place onion, garlic and poblano pepper in food processor until finely chopped .
- Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil or coconut oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add onion, garlic and poblano and cook, stirring frequently, about 10 minutes Add chopped chipotle chili and 1 tablespoon of the adobo sauce and cook (if you like a spicy kick add an additional tablespoon of adobo sauce), stirring, about 30 seconds. Transfer mixture to a large bowl.
- Place beans in food processor. Add cheese. Pulse until beans are roughly chopped). Don't chop them up too much you don't want the patties mushy. Transfer to the bowl with onion/pepper mixture. Add all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix throughly. Create patties and store with parchment paper in between each patty. Makes about 8 patties.
- To cook heat 1 tablespoon coconut oil in a large non-stick or cast iron skillet over medium heat. Cook for approximately 5 minutes on each side. Salt and Pepper to taste. Add cheese if desired.
Bean patties can be stored in a zip lock bag in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Separate the patties with parchment paper in between each layer. If you freeze the bean patties, thaw at room temperature for an hour before cooking.
