Description

The BEST Hawaiian Veggie Burgers! Tropical Black Bean Patty with Grilled Pineapple and Swiss! You have to make this one.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, roughly chopped
  • 1 carrot, roughly chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained, divided
  • 1/2 cup brown rice, cooked
  • 2 tbsp. cilantro leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin powder
  • 1/2 cup regular bread crumbs
  • Salt and fresh ground black pepper
  • 8 pineapple slices (fresh or frozen)
  • 8 slices swiss cheese
  • Hamburger Buns (I used [url:1]Dave’s Million Dollar Buns[/url] for this recipe- so good!)

Instructions

  1. Place the onion, red bell pepper, carrot and garlic into a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Add 1 can black beans, brown rice, cilantro, egg, red pepper flakes and cumin. Pulse to quickly combine.
  2. Transfer mixture to a large mixing bowl, add the remaining can of black beans and the bread crumbs. Season with salt and pepper and mix until well combined. Place in the fridge for 10-15 minutes to chill and thicken.
  3. Divide mixture into 6-8 patties. The thinner the patties, the crisper the burger will be.
  4. Heat a cast-iron skillet or grill pan over medium heat. Add pineapple slices and cook for 2-3 minutes per side until heated through and lightly charred. Remove and set aside.
  5. Lightly spray with cooking spray or drizzle olive oil on the skillet. Add burgers and cook about 5 minutes per side, until browned and heated through.
  6. The last minute of cooking, add pineapple slice and slice of swiss cheese. Cover to melt cheese!
  7. Serve!
