Utilize Rolled Oats To Easily Bulk Up Homemade Black Bean Burgers
A homemade black bean burger can benefit from adding rolled oats to bulk up the bean mixture. The oats add flavor, but most importantly, they help to hold the burgers together.
Rolled oats help absorb any liquid in the patties, such as seasonings like soy sauce, to prevent sogginess. They also make the texture more hearty, filling, and substantial.
When combined with an egg, oats ensure that your bean burgers don't fall apart. Oats also add plenty of nutrition to the burgers, including magnesium and protein.
Use a food processor to blend your patty mixture and thoroughly integrate the oats. You can also mash all your ingredients together, though the whole oats will be more noticeable.
