In This Recipe
After soaking beans overnight boil until completely cooked. Strain
Toast the quinoa in pan and add 1 and 1/3 cup water. Simmer until water is absorbed (about 25 minutes)
Roast bell pepper in 400-degree oven for 30 minutes.
Caramelize celery, carrot, onion, mushroom, shallots, garlic and oregano in a small amount of Olive Oil
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
Smash Half the black beans
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.
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.
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.
