Black Bean Patties / Black Bean Burgers

These are so good that Patrick took a bite (after I held it out and said “try it. TRY IT. I promise!”) and said “Oh wow those are good!” So there you have it, scientific proof that you have to make these, because they are delicious.

Bonus: look at how many of the ingredients fall on the list of 40 Best Age-Erasing Foods. YOU WILL GET YOUNGER IF YOU EAT THESE!*

Black Bean Patties

1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed

1/4 cup chopped leeks

1/4 cup grated carrots

3 Tbsp tomato paste

3/4 cup oat flour (oats processed in the food processor)

kosher salt

black pepper

lots of parsley

2 Tbs olive oil (more or less, for pan frying)

Plop everything into a bowl and mash a little with a fork so that about half of the beans are mashed and half are still whole. Heat some olive oil in a pan over medium high heat and when it’s ready form four patties. Cook until brown on both sides. Sprinkle just a touch more salt on hot patties.

I ate mine on a big salad of greens, tomatoes, carrots, and a little leftover quinoa.

For each (I didn’t include the olive oil for frying since you can use as much or little as you want:
