  • ¼ cup green onions, sliced

Putting It All Together

  1. Cook the Black Bean Soup with half the amount of water (1 cup) and cool. You should have a very thick bean paste.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly with cooled bean mixture.
  3. Divide mixture into four patties and cook on stovetop or grill.
  4. STOVETOP: In a hot frying pan, add 2 tbsp. oil and sear patties until crispy and heated throughout.
  5. ON THE GRILL: Place patties in a single layer on a lined tray or plate and freeze until firm, approx. 20-30 minutes. Preheat grill and wipe clean grates with an oiled cloth. Grill each patty approx. 5-7 minutes on each side.
  6. Top with avocado, sprouts, or your favorite condiments.
