I know there’s a lot of vegan burger recipes out there but this one just caught my eye. I think the cornmeal will make it rather tasty and should help hold it together also. I’m glad I found this one to add to my recipe collection.
Vegan Black Bean and Cornmeal Burgers
2 15-ounce cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup whole wheat or all-purpose flour
1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
1/2 cup salsa
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon garlic salt
Hamburger rolls or sourdough bread, baguettes, etc., toasted
condiments for topping
Place beans in food processor; process until fairly smooth. Add flour, cornmeal, salsa, cumin, and garlic salt. Process until well combined. Spoon mixture into six balls on a large plate and refrigerate at least one hour or up to four hours before cooking.
Heat barbecue grill or ridged grill pan over medium heat. Coat grill or pan lightly with oil. Form each ball into a 4-inch patty about 1/2-inch thick. Place patties on grill or in pan and cook until browned and heated through, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Serve on toasted rolls with condiments.
