Quick and Easy Vegan Black Bean Burgers

A new family favorite! 

1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped sweet peppers
4 garlic cloves
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 cup peeled and grated carrots
3 tsp chili powder
2 tsp cumin
3 cups cooked black beans
3 tablespoons dijon mustard
3 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons ketchup
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
tabasco sauce (if you want a kick)

Saute the onions, sweet peppers and garlic in the oil for about 5 minutes, until the onions begin to soften. Add the carrots, chili powder, and cumin and cook on low heat for 5 minutes. Set aside. Mash the beans in a large bowl with a potato masher or the back of a spoon. Add the mustard, soy sauce, ketchup, or tomato paste and the sauteed vegetables. Mix in the oats. Add salt, pepper and tabasco to taste. Moisten your hands and form the burger mixture in to 6, 3-4” patties. Lightly spray or oil a nonstick skillet and cook the burgers on medium low heat for 5 to 8 minutes on each side.
