Detox Burgers With Black Beans, Brown Rice + Flax

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 3/4 15-oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice or quinoa
  • 1 tablespoon flaxmeal
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • handful of parsley, chopped
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • salt + pepper

To garnish

  • 4 pieces bibb lettuce
  • couple handfuls of baby arugula
  • 1 avocado
  • ½ red onion, sliced
  • grain or Dijon mustard

Preparation

1. Heat oven to 425ºF degrees.

2. Pulse ingredients in a food processor until combined. Season with salt and pepper. Using your hands, form the mixture into four patties, around 1-inch thick.

3. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment (this makes for an easier clean up) and drizzle each patty with olive oil. Bake for about 20 minutes until they are golden brown.
