Is this dinner, or what?
These Gluten Free Spicy Black Bean Oat Burgers so, so, sooo easy to make! So, so, sooo gluten free and sooooo delicious, too.
This is my super simple take on a classic, the black bean burger. Ready in about 30 minutes, which, if we are being real here, is the exact amount of minutes I can stand to wait for dinner to be ready most nights.
And, best of all, they don’t crumble apart all over your lap when you take your first bite!
Oh, the humble burger.
They always make me smile. Mostly because YUM and also because they make me think of my mom. She’s so funny. Anytime her and I are out to eat, it could be just picking up a quick bite or sitting down at a classier restaurant, she always orders a burger. Always. A regular beef burger with NO CHEESE and fries. No bells. No whistles. Just a burger, no cheese and fries. Always.
Yes – I came from a cheese-hating household. Both mom and dad HATE cheese. Can you believe it? I know.
These veggie burgers don’t quite fit my mom’s standards but they definitely are everything I want in a meat-free (and gluten free) dinner.
MORE ABOUT THIS BLACK BEAN OAT BURGERS RECIPE…
A gluten free black bean and oat patty seasoned with a garlic and onion and a little cumin and a tiny kick of heat… but not too much heat because when it comes to spicy, I just can’t. But if you can, add all the heat you’d like. I’m not judging.
And so easy to make. Like, so easy. Like, Crazy Easy Black Mango Quinoa Salad easy. Like, everything goes into the food processor and then it’s pretty much straight into the pan.
I prefer browning these spicy black bean burgers, and all my burgers actually, in a pan with a little oil rather than baking them. The outsides get so crispy and the burgers don’t get all dry and crumbling like I find most veggie burgers do in the oven.
Then top them with whatever you’d like – cheese, avocado, lettuce, ketchup, mayo, mustard or nothing at all.
Good crumbled over some greens or between your favourite gluten free bread with a side of super crispy salt and peppered oven baked potato wedges.
You guys. These fries. They are everything! (They are a must-make!! Just like these veggie burgers.)
I always have a stack of these in my freezer so on the nights where I really don’t feel like cooking I have a super easy and healthy Plan B. It’s pretty much the best.
