Plant-Based Burgers, Fries and "Ginger Ale"
A healthy twist on the old classic...
15 oz. can black beans (Preferred Brand: Eden Black Beans)
2/3 cup rolled oats (Preferred Brand: Bob’s Red Mill Organic)
1/4 cup onion, minced
3 scallions, chopped
1 tablespoon jalapeño, minced
1/2 cup chopped parsley
5 tablespoons BBQ sauce (Preferred Brand: Primal Kitchen BBQ Sauce)
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Pepper
Drain black beans and mash in a bowl using the back of a fork. Add in all other ingredients, mix until well combined. Form the mixture into 4 patties. Add a spoonful of coconut oil to a frying pan, warm to medium heat. Place your patties (as many as you can fit) into the hot pan. Cook until golden brown on one side, then flip to cook the other side. Serve on a burger bun (Preferred Brand: Food for Life Ezekiel Sprouted Grains Burger Buns) or wrapped in lettuce. Dress with your favorite condiments. Enjoy with a side of fries and a cool glass of ginger ale!
