Pinto Bean Oat Burgers

Pinto Bean Oat Burgers

Serves 5 | Prep Time 45 minutes | Cook Time 15 minutes

Ingredients

15 ounces Eden Pinto Beans, drained, reserve 2 to 3 Tbsp. bean liquid

1/2 cup Eden Oat Flakes

1 cup coarsely grated carrots

2 Tbsp finely diced celery

3 Tbsp minced parsley

3 Tbsp finely diced onion

1/2 tsp Eden Sea Salt

1/2 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp ground cumin

5 Tbsp Eden Extra Virgin Olive Oil

5 lettuce leaves

1 medium organic tomato, sliced

1 1/2 Tbsp any Eden Mustard

Directions

Place the beans, oats, vegetables, salt, and spices in a food processor and pulse until combined but not pureed. Remove from the food processor and place in a bowl. Mix in 2 to 3 tablespoons of reserved bean cooking liquid and mix. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

Heat the olive oil in a heavy skillet. Shape the bean mixture into 5 1-inch thick burgers. When the oil is hot, place the burgers in the skillet over medium heat. Cook 5 to 7 minutes or until browned on the bottom. Carefully flip the burgers over and cook another 5 to 7 minutes or until browned and crispy.

Serve on a bed of lettuce with tomato slices and mustard garnish or on a bun with your favorite toppings.

NOTE: If a food processor is not available, place the ingredients in a medium bowl and mash with a potato masher.
