Southwest Veggie Burgers

Serves: 4

I like to have at least one meatless day per week. These are so delicious and healthy. Don't think of these as a meat-replacement, they are just another great thing to have on a bun!

Total Time:


1 cup cooked brown rice
1 cup cooked no-salt-added black beans, rinsed, drained, and courslely mashed
1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup diced tomato
1/4 cup diced roasted red bell pepper
1/4 cup shredded carrot
1 cup cooked and mashed sweet potato
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon no-salt-added chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
3 green onions, finely chopped
1/3 cup grated Cheddar cheese
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon tabasco or other hot sauce


Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir to mix. Form the mixture into 4 patties. Place patties on the baking sheet and bake, flipping once half way through cooking, until browned and slightly crisp on the outside, about 30 minutes.

To freeze the burgers, bake and cool them, then wrap in foil or freezer-safe wrap; unwrap the burgers and reheat them in the microwave, or place them on a parchment-lined pan and bake in a 300°F oven until hot, about 25 minutes.
