Boomin' Black Bean Burgers


Black Bean Burgers

Makes 8 patties

1 can black beans

1 large clove garlic

2 T tahini

Juice of 1 lime

1.5 t cumin

1 t cinnamon

1 t chili powder

1 t curry

1 t sea salt

½ C ground flax seed, plus 1 C

½ cup diced red onion

¼ cup grated carrot

¼ cup diced yellow or orange pepper

¼ cup salsa (I used an organic bottled version)

In food processor, blend first 9 ingredients with ½ cup flax until combined.

Add in the onion, carrot, pepper, and salsa and continue to process until combined, but still little chunky. The mixture will be quite moist at this point.

Remove mixture to large bowl and stir in remaining 1 cup of ground flax until well combined. The liquid in the mix should absorb the flax and it will become more dough like.
