15 oz. can black beans
1 1/2 cups mushrooms
1 flax egg (1 Tbsp. ground flax + 3 Tbsp. water)
1/2 large onion
3-4 garlic cloves
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. basil
4-6 hamburger buns
Toppings of choice: lettuce, clover sprouts, tomatoes, onion, avocado, ketchup, mustard
Rinse, drain and pat dry black beans. Dice onion, mince garlic, and chop mushrooms.
Make flax egg: in a small bowl, whisk together 1 Tbsp. flax with 3 Tbsp. water. Let sit to thicken.
Saute onion, garlic, mushrooms, salt, oregano, and basil over med-high heat until softened.
Put beans in a bowl and mash well (I use a potato masher). Add flax egg, sauteed veggies, breadcrumbs, and salt/pepper.
Mix well to combine and shape into 4 large or 6 smaller patties. It works best if you refrigerate them for at least an hour at this point.
When ready to cook, preheat oven to 350. Bake for 20 minutes on a lightly sprayed pan, turning halfway through.
If adding dairy-free cheese, take out, place cheese over top and return to oven for 5 minutes to melt cheese.
