Yield: 6 burgers
1 15-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 14.5 ounce can tomatoes with zesty mild chilies
1 garlic clove, minced, or 1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 green onions, chopped
1 cup chopped carrots
1 cup cilantro or parsley
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Process first seven ingredients in a food processor until blended.
3. Add to oats and stir.
4. Form into patties, put on a baking sheet, and bake for 8 minutes.
