1/2 cup rolled oats (oatmeal)
1 chunk of onion, approx. 2 tbsp.
1 medium carrot, halved
1/2 bell pepper
1 jalapeño, halved with seeds and membranes removed
1 15-oz can black beans, rinsed, drained and divided
2 tbsp. water
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
Cooking oil to grease pan
Place oats in jar and secure lid. Run blender on medium-high speed for 20 to 30 seconds to make a flour. Place in a mixing bowl and set aside. Add onion, carrot, bell pepper and jalapeño to the jar and enough water to completely cover the vegetables. Secure lid and “pulse” 8 to 10 times. Put chopped vegetables in a fine mesh strainer and press out all excess liquid. Add the chopped vegetables to mixing bowl containing oat flour. Add 1/2 cup black beans to mixing bowl. Place the remaining beans, 2 tablespoons water and seasonings into the blender jar, secure lid and run on medium speed for 25 seconds (“Sauces” button with a Blendtec). Add bean blend to mixing bowl and incorporate with other ingredients. Allow mix to sit while nonstick skillet heats up. Grease the skillet and scoop approximately 1/2 cup of mix per patty and flatten with back of spoon. Cook patties until heated through.
