Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: American
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
  • 2 tablespoons miso
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup cooked black beans
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1⁄2 cup rolled oats, ground into flour
  • 1⁄2 cup sunflower seeds, preferably soaked for at least 30 min to 2 hours (for better digestion)
  • 1⁄2 cup minced celery
  • 1⁄2 cup minced yellow or red onion
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons poultry seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon crushed garlic (about 2 cloves)
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon cayenne
  1. Mix the ground flax seeds in 6 tablespoons water in a small bowl and set aside for 5 minutes, until it thickens, making sure the water is completely absorbed.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 °F.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, mash the black beans with a potato masher. In a small bowl, use a fork to mix the miso and the water together to form a loose paste. Add the paste, along with the flax mixture and the remaining ingredients, and stir well until the batter comes together. You could mix with a big spoon or the potato masher while mashing in the same time.
  4. Using 1⁄2 cup per patty, scoop the batter, press firmly, and form 7 large patties. (Shape the batter into a ball first.) If your hands become too sticky, wash them and dry them before continuing. Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper and cook for 20 min. Flip and continue cooking for 10 min, until desired texture is achieved.
  5. Serve on a lettuce leaf or hamburger buns with sliced vegetables and condiments.
  6. Kept in a sealed container, these veggie burgers will keep in the refrigerator up to 5 days and in the freezer for I don’t know how long.
