| 1 min read
1 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1 shallots or one medium-sized onion, finely chopped
1⁄2 green bell pepper, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1⁄2 tbsp chili garlic sauce
1⁄4 cup cashews
1⁄4 cup crumbled feta
11⁄2 tbsp olive oil, divided
3⁄8 cup panko breadcrumbs
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Spread beans on a lined baking sheet, separating beans as much as possible.
Roast for 20 minutes, until beans are mostly split open and the skin is beginning to look crunchy. Allow beans to cool while preparing the other ingredients.
Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and pepper, and cook until softened, stirring frequently. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, stirring constantly.
Add chili garlic sauce and stir/cook until combined, less than a minute.
Transfer contents to a large mixing bowl.
Chop cashews and beans separately in the food processor or blender with a pulse setting. Pulse until roughly chopped.
Add food processor contents to a mixing bowl. Add egg, crumbled feta, breadcrumbs, and salt and pepper to taste.
Fold together gently. Make bean mixture into patties of desired size.
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Add bean patties, allowing room between them, and cook until they brown, about 5 minutes. Gently flip and cook until the other side is browned, about 5 minutes longer.
Serve on whole wheat buns with desired condiments.
