Vegan Black Bean Burgers

I thought I'd do a bit of experimenting tonight, to come up with some "meaty" patties to sink our teeth into, While these taste really good and you wouldn't think they are good for you, they are really healthy too.

Makes 8 Large Burger Patties

1 Large Onion diced
2 Large cloves Garlic minced
3 cups soaked Black Beans
4-5 slices of Gluten Free fresh Bread crumbs
5 Tbsp Tomato Ketchup
4 Tbsp Tamari
3 Tbsp dried Parsley
2-3 Tbsp vegan Beef Stock Powder
1 tsp dried Coriander 
1/3 cup Sesame Seeds
1 Tbsp Coconut Oil (optional)
1. In a small amount of oil fry the onions and garlic lightly till translucent
2. In a food processor add the beans, onion and garlic, ketchup, tamari, parsley, coriander and bread crumbs and process for a minute scraping down the sides as you go, till it is mashed well.
3. Put the contents in to a bowl and add the sesame seeds and oil now and stir them in to combine.
4. Form patties with clean hands and cook in a frying pan in a small amount of oil cooking for 10 mins on each side or till they are lovely and golden brown on both sides. Enjoy!  =)
