Recipe: Now-or-Later Vegan Burgers



2 cups canned black beans, 1/4 cup canned lentils (both no salt added)
^you can use any beans you like and save the liquid
4 carrots, grated
1 small onion, chopped (1 cup)
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup chopped cilantro (or parsley)
3 cloves garlic, chopped (1 tbsp)
spices of your choice, sea salt and ground pepper (tsp each)
4 tbsp olive oil

1. Pulse beans, carrots, onions, oats, parsley, garlic, spices in a food processor. (I have a small one which this would work better in a large processor. You want the consistency to be chunky and since I have a small processor it takes longer to pulse everything causing it to liquefy easier).
2. Let rest for a bit before shaping patties. The above ingredients gave 5 patties. Wrap them up in plastic and refrigerate. In about 30 minutes they will be ready to cook.
3. Spray cooking spray onto a skillet at medium heat. Cook each side of burger for 3-5 minutes. You want some crispiness on each side.
4. Pop any patties that you don't use into the freezer!
