1. Grab a large mixing bowl and place 1 cup of washed and drained black beans into the bowl. Use a potato mashed to slightly mash up black beans( until no whole beans can be seen) for around 30 seconds. PS: cook frozen chips into the air fryer at the same time if needed.
2.Add ¼ cup grated carrot, ⅓ cup thinly sliced scallion(green part only) and all the seasonings( light soy sauce, vegan BBQ sauce, vegan oyster sauce, Dijon mustard, Garlic powder, Onion powder, Smoked Paprika, Liquid smoke, salt and pepper). Stir and mix everything together.
3. Add Rice flour, Psyllium Husk and Quick Oats into the bowl, use a spatula to mix all the ingredients together( around 2-3 minutes) until they form a dough-like mixture. P.S. the mixture should be a bit wet but not sticky. If sticky, add rice flour 1 tsp at a time, if too dry and falling apart, add water 1 tsp, and vice versa.
4. Wet your both hands with water or oil, and shape the mixture into 2-3 patties. You can get three small patties(around 4 oz/ 110 grams) or two large patties( around 6 oz/ 160-170 grams) out of this recipe.
5. Heat up a frying pan on medium-low heat with 1 tbsp cooking oil, and place the vegan burger patties into the pan, fry until the surface becomes golden brown.
6. Flip the vegan burger patties, then place vegan cheese slices on the top of the patties and put the lid on and turn the heat to low. Vegan cheeses usually don’t melt well, so we want them warm and soft. (cold cheese doesn’t taste nice tho😥)
7. While our Vegan Cheeses are warming up, heap up a pan on medium-high heat without oil. Cut the burger buns into halves and toast them until lightly colored then take them out.
8. Assemble your burgers while the burger buns are still hot. Spread top and bottom bun with your sauce of choice. Top with your choice of burger fillings( lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, red onion), and more sauce if desired. Dig in while they are warm! Enjoy!🍔 (Note)
(Note)- These vegan burger patties are perfect for the make-ahead. You can freeze them cooked or uncooked in the freezer for at least three months.When needed, take them out and let them defrost completely then cook. Sometimes I even shape them into balls to make for other dishes. ( with pasta bolognese, soup or make them into salad wraps or pockets for work lunch meals) They’re so handy for quick meals!
