Red Pepper and Basil White Bean Burgers

Red Pepper and Basil White Bean Burgers

Serves 6

Make these basic bean burgers and enjoy a meatless summer feast. The burger mixture may seem loose but these will certainly hold up and keep their shape when cooked on a hot grill. Serve on sprouted whole grain buns with lettuce, tomato, avocado and red onion.

  • 1/2 cup chopped roasted red peppers, drained well
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/4 cup packed fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 teaspoon pimentón (smoked paprika)
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans no-salt-added cannellini beans, rinsed and drained

Place peppers, flaxseed, basil, oats, garlic and smoked paprika in the bowl of a food processor and process until blended. Add beans and pulse briefly until mixture just comes together in a ball, scraping down sides of bowl occasionally. Be careful not to fully puree the beans but rather leave them chunky.

Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Form burger mixture into 6 even patties. Grill burgers, covered, for 3 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned and heated through. Place lettuce leaves on buns and top with burgers, tomato slices and avocado.
