Pin-Test: Best Ever Vegan Burger

You guys. I cannot even begin to describe just how tasty this burger is. I scoured the web for all of the self proclaimed best vegan burgers and this BY FAR was the winner. Somehow with all of the spices added it tastes savory and just like meat (there was a recipe that came in close second, this sweet potato burger is also pretty fantastic). The best part about making this was that it makes around 8 patties, so I just saved the mixture in the fridge and had ready to go burgers whenever I needed. Here's the original recipe, and below is the recipe adapted by me.

1 1/2 cups black beans, drained/canned
6 Tbsp fine bread crumbs
3/4 cup baked/mashed sweet potato
3 Tbsp chopped cilantro - including stems
1/3 cup diced white onion
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp chopped garlic
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp cider vinegar
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder
2 teaspoons cajun seasoning
Burger Covering
1 cup panko crumbs

Optional: Avocado slices, tomatoes, alfalfa sprouts, onion


1. First up, prepare the burgers. Pulse all the ingredients in a food processor or blender. You can also mash well by hand - but a fp is a tad faster. Next, hand-form burger patties with the mixture and then roll them in panko crumbs and place them on a lightly greased baking sheet. 

2. Bake your burgers at 375 degrees for 25 minutes. Cool for a few minutes before assembling burgers. The last 5 minutes of cooking - add your burger buns to the oven to warm/toast them.

3. Assemble those burgers! I used a toasted bun, alfalfa sprouts, tomato, onion, avocado and of course the burger.
