Christmas is coming, and with that comes all the festivities! So, I figured I would share my most recent recipe with all of you; the Spicy Moringa Bean Burger!
This burger recipe is quick and easy to make. The best part is that you can make a big batch for meal prepping by forming the patties and then freezing them till you need to cook them. Then, if you know you will be eating them in the next couple of days, you can store the mixture in a glass container till you need it!
This spicy moringa bean burger recipe makes 4 regular-sized patties or 6 to 8 sliders. If you don’t want it to be spicy – take out the hot sauce and chilli powder. The spice level is light to medium. Want it to be stronger? Add more of the previously mentioned ingredients, or grab a spicier hot sauce. The Moringa is always optional, but it adds a lot of nutritional value. So, I highly recommend it!
- 1 can of black beans, drained
- 1 tablespoon of garlic, minced
- 1 big carrot, grated
- 1/3 cup of yellow onion, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup of green bell pepper, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
- 1 1/2 Tablespoon of Water
- 3 tablespoons of Cholula hot sauce or sriracha
- 1 teaspoon of chilli powder
- 1 teaspoon of ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon of paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1/4 teaspoon of pepper
- 1 tablespoon of moringa powder
- 2 slices of whole-wheat bread, torn into crumbs
- 1/2 cups of flour, or as needed
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Pour the black beans in a bowl and mash them till they are slightly broken up. They do not need to be smooth. Add the yellow onion, garlic, carrots, and green bell pepper. Mix together.
- Mix cornstarch, water, Cholula, chilli powder, cumin, paprika, salt, black pepper, and moringa powder in a separate bowl.
- Once evenly mixed, pour into the bean mixture. Stir till sauce is evenly distributed.
- Add Whole Wheat Bread into the bean mixture. Stir in the flour 1/4 cup at a time. Add more or less flour, depending on preferred consistency. The batter should start to stick together.
- Separate mixture into four balls and form each ball into burger-like patties.
- Place the patties onto an oiled pan. Cook for 10 minutes on each side.
