Gluten Free Spicy Black Bean Veggie Burgers, GF, DF, V

When you have a lot of veggies in the house you get creative! Hubby gave these veggie burgers a big thumbs up and that's a miracle coming from my meat eating man.

I love being able to cut some meat from our diets and still make him happy. Plus it's great for my budget!  

Makes 10 large Veggie Burgers

  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 can of black beans, drained
  • 1/2 cup walnuts or 1/2 cup flax meal
  • 2 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • Fresh parsley
  • 2 handfuls fresh spinach (or I also like, 1 cup broccoli and 1/2 of a cooked sweet potato)
  • 1 tablespoon psyllium husks (or other binder's like Chia and flax )
  • 1 tablespoon Italian spices
  • Dash gluten free Tamari
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon gluten free chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon gluten free curry powder
  • Salt and fresh ground pepper
  • Lawry's seasoning salt, to taste. 
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice 
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice, reserved or try steamed cauliflower for low carb
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, reserve 2 tablespoons for browning
  1. Put everything except the reserved brown rice in the food processor. Pulse until thick, slowly adding two tablespoons of the olive oil.  I like mine a little chunky. 
  2. Stir in the remaining 2 cups cooked brown rice by hand and form into large patties. 
  3. Brown patties in reserved 2 tablespoons olive oil
  4. Bake on a greased or lined baking sheet at 350 for 15 minutes turning once.
