Vegan Black Bean Burger

Would you believe me if I told you that North Sunflower Medical Center serves a black bean burger that is so full of awesomeness it will make your head spin?  Well.  It's true.  The do. 

Kind of brings people together, the NSMC black bean burger.  Folks that often don't have the same dietary preferences all freak out over the BBB.  

Not to be confused with the BBH although I'm sure that they would freak out over him, too.  

So this vegan black bean burger was a delight.  Paired with green beans and some sweet potato fries, it was practically the perfect supper.  

For a 1/7 vegan.  

It was the perfect supper for a 1/7 vegan that didn't have anyone else to impress.  

But to bad their wasn't anyone to impress because let's be honest...that mustard heart is kind of amazing.      
Vegan Black Bean Burgers
 
2 tsp olive oil
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup finely chopped carrot
1/4 cup finely chopped pepper
1/4 cup finely chopped mushroom
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tbl ketchup
2 tsp dijon mustard (I used Durkees and the world didn't end)
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp ground chili powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup black beans
1/4 cup of panko bread crumbs

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.  
 
Heat oil in a small skillet over medium heat.  Add the onions, carrot, pepper, mushrooms and saute for 4-5 minutes or until soft.  Add garlic and stir for 30 seconds.  Add the ketchup, mustard, cumin, chili powder and salt.  Stir to combine.  

Transfer to a food processor and allow to cool.  Add in the panko and the black beans and process until smooth.  

Transfer to a bowl.  Divide into two equal parts and form into patties.

Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.  Cook the patties for 15 minutes and serve however you usually do your burger business.
