Recipe

It feels like everyone is really stepping up there burger game these days. In the past week alone I have seen drool-worthy recipes for teriyaki pineapple burgers, blue cheese buffalo turkey burgers, spicy Thai shrimp burgers, and more. With summer in full swing, it’s just so easy to get excited about burgers. But often, at least in my house (sorry veggie friends!), I usually don’t focus on making a delicious vegetarian option. I make a delicious meat based burger and then (gasp!) grab my favorite frozen veggie burgers and cross my fingers the toppings will make it magical. But this time, I decided to step up my game with the veggie burgers. These simple black bean burgers are packed with flavor and made even more delicious with the addition of this roasted red pepper goat cheese spread. Yum.

Directions

  1. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a skillet. Add the onion and cook for 3-4 minutes. Add the eggplant and cook for 3-4 minutes. If not yet tender, add 1-2 tbsp. of water and cover. Cook for 3-4 more minutes until tender. Stir in the garlic and cook about 1 minute or until fragrant.
  2. Add that to a food processor along with the black beans, parsley, and tahini. Pulse until just combined, but still chunky.
  3. Place in a bowl and add the breadcrumbs, egg, salt, pepper, and oregano.
  4. Divide into four patties and cook in a skillet for 4-5 minutes until browned. You can also bake them in a 425 degree oven for 15 minutes, flipping once. Serve on a toasted roll with veggies and roasted red pepper goat cheese spread. Add 25 calories and 1 PointsPlus® per tablespoon of spread.
