About the Recipe

A quick recipe that will take the chore out of eating your leafy greens


  • 2 cans of black beans, rinsed and drained

  • 1 cup onion, minced

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 cup carrot, shredded or minced

  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 egg

  • Pinch of salt and pepper

  • Optional spices: 1 teaspoon cumin, ½ teaspoon chili powder


  1. Drain and rinse beans then use a towel to dry and remove excess moisture.

  2. Chop vegetables and add to a food processor. Pulse a few times to finely chop.

  3. Add vegetable mixture to a towel in a colander and squeeze out extra moisture.

  4. Return vegetable mixture to food processor and add salt, pepper, spices, and black beans. Pulse a few times to break down beans. To avoid mushy texture, do not over process. If you do not have a food processor you can use a potato masher or fork.

  5. Place mixture in a medium bowl and add egg and breadcrumbs. Mix to combine.

  6. Form four patties by packing mixture tightly into a ball and pushing down. Cook on oiled skillet or grill until both sides are crispy (about 5 minutes on each side).
