I love bean burgers. Usually, I made black bean burgers with a little bit of a tex-mex flair. This time, however, I wanted something a little plainer that wouldn’t over power traditional burger fixin’s. Thus, I present to you – White Bean Burgers.
2 cans white beans, drained and rinsed (about 3 cups)
1.5 c carrots, chopped
1 c onion, chopped
3-4 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 – 1/2 bell pepper, chopped
1/8 – 1/4 c banana peppers, chopped
1/4 c tahini
2 TBSP nutritional yeast
2 TBSP parsley flake
2 TBSP oregano
1 TBSP basil
1 TBSP Mrs. Dash Chipotle Seasoning or chili powder
Satl & Pepper to taste
Saute onions, garlic, carrots, bell pepper until tender (about 5 minutes). Add a little water to the pan if items are dry. (Bell peppers may emit enough water to saute.) Add seasonings and stir.
Add half of beans to large bowl and mash. Add veggies, remaining beans, banana peppers, and nutritional yeast. Stir to combine.
Mixture will be very moist. Wet hands before shaping burgers to avoid sticking.
Scoop large amount of mixture and roll into a ball. Place in large skillet sprayed with cooking spray and flatten into burger shape.
Brown on each side and heat through until center of burger is warm.
Serving Size: 5 large burgers
