Black Bean Patties

You truly have an affection for burgers.  Beef, bison, turkey or veggie—you’ll take one over the other depending on the flavor of the week.  Your newest love has become Black Bean Patties with Molé Glaze.  These satisfyingly savory veggie burgers have a hint of sweet, smoke and spice. And holy molé, are they good!


2, 15 oz. cans black beans, drained and rinsed

1 C. onion, diced

1 Tbsp. jalapeño, minced

1 clove garlic, minced

¼ C. flaxseed meal

2 Tbsp. olive oil

1/8 tsp. cinnamon

1/8 tsp. chili powder

1/8 tsp. cocoa powder


In a large bowl, mash black beans with a fork or muddler, leaving some beans partially to completely whole.  Mash in onion, jalapeño, garlic and flaxseed meal until combined.  Using your hands, form black bean mash into small patties.

In a small bowl, combine one-tablespoon olive oil with cinnamon, chili powder and cocoa powder to make your molé glaze.  Place remaining oil in a fry pan on medium-low heat.  Lightly fry patties for about two to three minutes on each side. Brush with glaze and remove from heat. Serve with spicy sweet potato fries and your favorite guacamole.

Just you and your honey for a romantic evening?  Quarter the recipe.

FOOD THAT LOVES YOU, TOO:  Black beans aid digestion, keep your blood sugar levels low and are an excellent source of protein. Believe it or not, fiber and antioxidant-rich black beans are the best-for-you beans out there.
