Health expert Candice Rosen, author of The Pancreatic Oath, shares this vegan black bean burger recipe. She says, "It is a healthy, high-fiber, high-protein meat alternative that does not contain soy. Making your own 'processed' foods and freezing ahead is also key to living a healthier lifestyle. It is more cost effective and flavorful than pre-made veggie burgers. Plus, it's easier on digestion."

Black Bean Burger

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped

  • 1 clove garlic, chopped fine

  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin

  • 2 (15-ounce) cans of organic black beans, rinsed, drained, partially mashed

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley

  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

  • 1/4 cup uncooked oatmeal

  • 1/2 cup whole grain bread crumbs

  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


Directions:

  1. Preheat a large skillet to medium heat. Add one tablespoon of olive oil and lightly brown onion and garlic. Take skillet off of stove.

  2. In a large bowl, combine onion mixture with remaining ingredients and mix well. If it is too wet, add more oatmeal. If it is too dry, add water one teaspoon at a time.
