HempNutty Burger

Hempseeds form the basis for these delicious, plant-based burgers (along with black beans and brown rice). Less well known than the hemp plant's more notable offerings, hempseeds provide a good source of protein along with an impressive profile of essential fatty acids.

800g cooked or canned black beans

190g cooked short-grain brown rice

59.5g whole wheat bread crumbs

84.5g cup shelled hempseeds

22.5g cup rolled oats

2 tbsp almond butter

2 tsp olive oil (plus 1/2 cup for cooking)

1 small onion, diced

1 tsp poultry seasoning (dried parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme)

1 tsp sea salt

pinch chili powder

  1. Combine the first 6 ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Place 2 tsp oil in a skillet over medium heat; add onion. When onion begins to sizzle, add seasonings and sauté for 2–3 minutes. Stir into bean mixture and mix well. With moist hands, form into patties.
  3. Heat remaining oil in the skillet. Fry burgers until golden crisp on the outside, turning once.

Yields 6 burgers
