INSTRUCTIONS

1
Prep: Wash and dry the produce. Peel and dice the yellow onion. Mince the garlic. Drain and rinse the black beans. Pull apart lettuce leaves. Slice tomato in thin rounds. Peel and slice the red onion in thin rounds.
2
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and yellow onion. Sauté until onions are golden, soft and fragrant, about 5-7 minutes.
3
Add the black beans, spice pack of cumin powder, smoked paprika, chili powder, red pepper flakes and 1 teaspoon of salt. Stir in the skillet until well incorporated and warm, about 3 minutes.
4
Add the oats to the bowl of a food processor or blender and pulse a few times to get a fine powder. Add the bean mixture and process until just combined, leaving some texture. Transfer to a mixing bowl and add the corn. Mix well with a large spoon.
5
Form bean mixture into 8 patties. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil to coat. Add the patties and fry on one side until golden, about 5 minutes. Flip and cook for another 2 minutes, making sure the burgers do not burn. Repeat until all patties are cooked.
6
To serve, top a "bun" with lettuce, red onion, tomato and a veggie burger. Enjoy!
