thought I'd share my veg recipe for black bean mushroom burgers, and sweet rye buns. I'm all about small portions, and my recipes reflect that. this serves four.

Step 1: Ingredient List: Burgers

7oz black beans, drained
1/8c all purpose flour
1/4c yellow corn
1/2 jalapeño or sweet pepper, diced
1 med crimini mushroom, chopped
1/8c old fashioned oats
2T cornmeal
1-2 black olives, chopped
1/2tsp cumin
1/4tsp garlic salt

Step 2: Ingredient List: Bunz

1T active dry yeast
1/2c warm water
1/4c olive oil
1 egg substitute
1/2tsp smoked sea salt
1 1/2c all purpose flour
1/2c rye flour (or wheat)
4T sugar

Step 3: Mash Up Time!

start mashing all ingredients of the burger recipe in a mixing bowl, using a magnificent mashing mechanism. I don't have a food processor, nor do I care for baby food - I like tasting bits of corn and pepper - but suit yourself. it likely won't hold together well that way. refrigerate 1hr to allow the dry ingredients to soak up the liquid.

Step 4: My, What Sweet Buns You Have!

dissolve the yeast in 1/2c warm water, add in sugar and oil, and let it stand about 5min. heat your oven to 425. add the remaining ingredients and mix into a hefty dough ball. knead a tic. divide into four. now shape these into thick discs, and set them out on your baking sheet. I used a sprinkle of cornmeal on a well-loved pizza stone. cover these lightly to rise about 10min.

Step 5: Seeded Top Option

chopped garlic or onion is amazing on a homemade bun! or you can try a mix of poppyseeds, smoked sea salt, black pepper, and spices as shown here. you'll need a little melted butter or oil spray to get this mix to stick. make em pretty, or leave them as is - they're delicious either way. bake these for 10-12min and cool on a wire rack.

Step 6: Terrific Form!

separate the burgers into four balls and flatten them between your hands until they're 1/4-1/2" thick. over medium heat, cook them 4-5min each side in light oil. if they're going on the grill, a pre-cook this way for a minute or two each side will hold them together nicely.

Step 7: Fixins

slice the buns, and throw on cheese, onion, pickle, tomato, etc. just as a cheeseburger, these are phenomenal.

Step 8: Bon Apetit!

as you can see, they turn out looking amazing, and they are better than anything store bought. I've made them a few times now and get raving responses all around. it makes a big difference when there's effort going into what you consume. eat well! and let me know your tweaks to the recipe!

For gluten free just use white rice flour in the burgers and make different buns

Thanks for sharing! We just made something somewhat similar with black-eyed peas. It wasn't too bad, but your recipe sounds tastier!
