Recipe Ingredients for Black Bean Burgers -Veganomicon

2 cups black beans
1/2 cup vital wheat gluten
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 teaspoon chile powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1/4 cup cilantro
2 cloves garlic
1/2 small onion
2 tablespoons Olive Oil

Recipe Directions for Black Bean Burgers -Veganomicon

  1. Mash the beans with a fork in a mixing bowl. You don't want to puree them; just get them mashed so that no whole beans are left, but leave some half-beans.

  2. Add the wheat gluten, bread crumbs, chile powder, cumin, water and tomato paste (and cilantro) but don't mix yet. Use a microplane grater to grate the garlic in. Use the large holes on a box grater to grate the onion.

  3. Mix everything together with a fork and then proceed to mix with your hands until the mixture is firm and uniformly mixed (about a minute).

  4. Preheat a heavy-bottomed pan over medium-high heat.

  5. Divide the burger mixture into six equal pieces. Roll each piece into a firm ball. Use your palm to press the ball down on a clean surface to form a patty that is about 1-1/2 inch thick. Press so that the patty is flat on both sides. Make six patties.

  6. Pour a thin layer of olive oil into the pan. Cook the patties three at a time for 5 minutes on each side, gently but firmly pressing down on them with a spatula. Spray with olive oil before turning them over, for uniform browning. Once cooked, the patties should be very firm when you press down on them.

  7. Serve warm on burger buns.
