INGREDIENTS

  • »  1 can black beans, drained & rinsed (pat dry)
  • »  1 cup baby spinach
  • »  1⁄4 medium yellow onion
  • »  1 clove garlic
  • »  Small bunch of parsley
  • »  1 egg
  • »  1⁄4 cup spelt or gluten-free breadcrumbs
  • »  1⁄4 tsp sea salt
  • »  1⁄4 tsp cumin
  • 1⁄4 tsp Herbamare Zesty
  • » 1 Tbsp avocado oil
  • OPTIONAL TOPPINGS: Mashed avo- cado, Dijon mustard, organic ketchup, vegan mayo or pesto

DIRECTIONS

Place spinach, onion, garlic, parsley, egg, sea salt, cumin, Herbamare Zesty and half the black beans in a food processor and blend until smooth. Lightly mash the remaining black beans with a fork or potato masher in another bowl. Add in processed mixture and breadcrumbs. Combine well with a spoon and form into patties. If you find the patties too soft, add more bread- crumbs. Keep in mind, these are a little delicate.

Place the patties on some parchment paper and put them in the freezer for five minutes to firm up. Heat a skillet with avocado oil over medium-low heat. Cook burgers on each side for about five to six minutes, or until they turn golden brown and crispy. Flip carefully! Remove from heat and enjoy alone, on a lettuce wrap, Portobello mushroom or a sprouted whole grain bun. Z
