Happy Monday Blog Friends! I am so excited to bring you yet another delicious meatless Monday recipe.
Last week I gave my family somewhat of a reprieve from our meatless meal and I made Brazilian Black Bean Burgers AND a beefy alternative. In my personal opinion, the Brazilian Black Bean Burgers were waaaaay better than the traditional hamburgers. Packed with yummy ingredients like black beans, brown rice, sweet potato and corn - how you could NOT love these delicious grilled treats?
Brazilian Black Bean Burgers
2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup brown rice, cooked
3 egg whites
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 sweet potato, grated
3/4 cup frozen corn
1/3 cup cornmeal
whole wheat buns
Toppings: lettuce, tomato, avocado, pickle, mustard, ketchup, mayonnaise, etc.
Puree beans (reserving 1/2 cup), rice, egg whites, paprika, salt and pepper in food processor until smooth.
Stir in sweet potato, corn, cornmeal and reserved beans.
Place patties on the grill (or a Big Green Egg in my case) and grill until cooked through.
It's the hint of sweetness from the corn and the sweet potato and the smoky flavor from the paprika and the grill that really sets this veggie burger apart from all others. They were easy to put together and I can store the extra burgers in my freezer for busy nights when I need a quick dinner. It's time to jump on the meatless bandwagon and try these burgers. You wont be disappointed.
