I came across this recipe on Healthy Aperture when I was looking for a quick and easy vegan or vegetarian recipe the night before my groceries were due for delivery, which meant the cupboards were fairly empty. I usually don’t run out of avocados, since I’m fairly obsessed with them (whether or not they are ripe and ready is a different story!), and I always have a good supply of beans in the house. I was pleasantly surprised with the way these turned out. The burgers have a great consistency and flavour, and they were simple to make. I look forward to making and eating these again!

Ingredients
  1. 1 medium avocado
  2. 3 TBSP lime juice (from about 1-2 limes)
  3. 1 (15 ounce) can/carton no salt added black beans, rinsed & drained
  4. 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  5. 1/4 tsp salt
  6. 1 TBSP chia seeds
  7. 1/4 cup old fashioned or quick oats (not instant) (gluten free)
  8. 1 TBSP olive, coconut or avocado oil
Instructions
  1. In a medium bowl, mash the avocado and lime juice. Add half of the beans, garlic powder, and salt. Mash together.
  2. Add the chia seeds, oats, and remaining beans. Stir well to combine completely (do not mash this time - the whole beans give the burgers a good texture).
  3. Shape into 4 patties, and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes or up to overnight (keep covered if storing for longer than 15 minutes).
  4. When ready to cook, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add in patties, making sure they don't touch. Cook for about 5-7 minutes per side, until crispy on the outside.
  5. Sprinkle with fresh chopped cilantro, if desired.
