The question I am most frequently asked now when people find out I’ve been living vegetarian is, “How do you get enough protein?” Well there are plenty of ways, but one of the most delicious ways is a good old fashioned burger. Well, a Black Bean Veggie Burger to be exact. I’ve tried quite a few commercial veggie burgers. They aren’t all that bad, some are even pretty good, but they all just taste a bit too manufactured after you’ve had a homemade patty like this. And isn’t that the case with all homemade things? They just taste so much better.
Preheat oven to 300F. Line a large baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside. In the bowl of a food processor, place all the ingredients except the black beans. Pulse for 30 seconds, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary, until the ingredients are finely chopped but still have a some texture.
