spicy black bean burgers with mango pepper slaw

So its needless to say that I’ve been on a major burger rampage lately.  This is kind of an amazing recipe because the burger is spicy and the slaw is sweet – so ultimately, in a yin yang sorta way, they perfectly compliment each other.  Plus, veggie burgers just always make me feel great.

I served my burger on a sesame Ezekiel bun with more pepper jack cheese.

Slaw Ingredients:

  • 2 mangoes, sliced long & thin
  • 1 small red bell pepper, sliced long & thin
  • 2 tbs chopped fresh mint
  • juice of 1 orange
  • juice of 4 limes
  • 2 tbs Brown Rice Vinegar
  • 2 tbs Sesame Oil

Combine all ingredients in a shallow bowl; allowing the fruit & veggie to marinate while you are making the burgers.  Set aside.

 

Burger Ingredients:

  • 2 cups COOKED Quinoa (or rice)
  • 1 (15 oz.) can Black Beans (rinsed & dried)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • 1 small bunch fresh mint, chopped
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
  • 3/4 cup shredded pepper jack cheese

Preheat oven to 425 F.

I cooked quinoa in a bit of salt and I threw in a chopped garlic clove for extra effect (not necessary but an option none the less).  Allow quinoa to cool prior to adding to mixture.

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and lastly fold in the cheese.  Form your patties and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet or baking pan.

Bake the patties for 20-25 minutes, flipping midway through.

My Fixins:

  • Sesame seed Ezekiel buns
  • Pepper Jack Sliced Cheese

Yields 6 patties.

…delicious happens
