Ingredients
  • 1 15-oz can of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • ¼ cup green bell pepper, minced
  • 1 tablespoon warm water
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon seafood seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¾ cup unbleached flour, or as needed
  • ⅓ cup chopped sweet onion
  • 3 baby carrots, grated
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons chili-garlic sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 slices whole-wheat bread, torn into small crumbs
Method
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet. Mash black beans in a bowl. Add onion, garlic, carrots, and green bell pepper and mix together. Whisk cornstarch, water, chile-garlic sauce, chili powder, cumin, seafood seasoning, salt, and black pepper together in a separate small bowl. Stir cornstarch mixture into black bean mixture. Mix whole-wheat bread into bean mixture. Stir flour, 1/4 cup at a time, into bean mixture until a sticky batter forms. Spoon 'burger-sized' mounds of batter onto the prepared baking sheet, about a 3/4-inch thickness per mound. Shape into burgers. Bake in the preheated oven until cooked in the center and crisp in the outside, about 10 minutes on each side.
