Preparation Instructions

Over medium heat, add olive oil, carrot, onion, salt & pepper and red pepper flake.

Cook for 5 minutes, then add garlic and continue cooking until onions are transparent and carrots are tender. Remove from heat and let cool.

In large bowl, add all cooled ingredients - beans, carrot mixture, egg, oats and cilantro. Smash with a fork or vegetable masher (my favorite method). Then refrigerate for 1 hour.

Shape into patties and fry in grape seed oil over medium-high heat. Approximately 5 minutes each side. I like mine a little crispy on the outside.




This tasty topping combined a Guacamole like presence with a sweet and tangy Peach essence. The Peach cuts through the Avocado and gives it a nice flavorful bite that, when combined with a strong flavor like the Black Bean Burger or Wrap, adds a layer of flavor that turns your tastebuds inside out. Yum!
