So yummy and filling. Best alternative to a rice, tofu, and veggie burgers. Bound with oatmeal or flax meal. Vegan and gluten free... Unless you add some feta to top it like I do! —Do it Like Dana

  4. Caramelize celery, carrot, onion, mushroom, shallots, garlic and oregano in a small amount of Olive Oil
  5. Blend sun dried tomatoes a small amount of hot water Until it is a smooth paste. If using already re hydrated sun dried tomatoes you can blend them without the hot water. Combine with caramelized Veggies
  6. Smash Half the black beans
  7. Combine smashed black beans, whole black beans, quinoa, oatmeal, quinoa flour, veggies, pine nuts, chopped and roasted bell pepper, dijon, and braggs. Mix Until oatmeal is evenly moist. If there is remaining liquid on the bottom add more quinoa flour or oatmeal until it is absorbed.
  8. Use a half-cup measuring cup to press mixture into. Once half cup is full press firmly down. Burger mixture will pop out of the measuring cup, once in your hands continue to press until about ½ inch thick. Continue process for all mixture.
  9. Heat oil for frying. Place however many burgers you can in pan without them touching. Cook on each side for about 4 minutes, medium heat and burger is dark brown.
