White Bean Burgers Recipe
With 4th of July just around the corner, and summer grilling season in full swing, I wanted to share an easy and delicious homemade White Bean Burger that you can make in under 30 minutes for any cookout or gathering you may be hosting. White bean burgers are one of the easiest and healthiest dishes to make and it’s much cheaper to make your own instead of buy every time! These are also perfect for an easy dinner option during the week (meatless Monday) and you can serve over a bed of lettuce of use a romaine leaf as a “bun” if you are watching your carbs.
The best part of making your own burgers is that you control the ingredients, like the amount of salt, so you can customize it to your liking. These burgers use grated carrots and grated onions, which help keep the burgers moist because no one likes to eat a dry bean burger! I’ve partnered with Kuner’s of Colorado to create this recipe and share it with you anytime you are having people over and want an easy dinner option. You can even make these gluten free by using gluten free oats.
White Bean Burger Ingredients
The ingredients to make white bean burgers are simple and healthy and you most likely have most, if not all in your pantry. 2 cans of Kuner’s Great Northern Beans (or any white beans you have on hand), carrots, onions, oats, an egg, garlic, lemon and fresh parsley. For seasonings, you need salt, pepper and ground cumin.
How to Make White Bean Burgers
To make white bean burgers, you’ll need to pulse the oats to make oat flour. To save time, chop the garlic in the food processor and then add the oats and pulse until it’s finely ground. Remove the garlic and oats and then add the rinsed and drained beans with lemon juice to the food processor. Pulse 3-4 times until the beans are coarsely chopped and some larger bean pieces remain. Then simply grate a carrot, a small onion, and chop some parsley to mix with the oat flour, garlic, beans, cumin, salt, pepper and a beaten egg. It’s ok if the mixture is chunky, it gives the burgers more texture.
Stir the mixture and form patties and refrigerate for an hour so that the mixture hardens and doesn’t fall apart during the cooking process. To cook, simply heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat and cook the white bean burger patties for 6 minutes per side until browned and cooked through. Flip only once so that the patties stay together. Your house will smell amazing of the toasted cumin, garlic, onion and beans.
