Makes: 8-12 patties
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Course: Mains


  • 1 small carrot, grated
  • 1/2 small onion, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds or walnuts
  • 1 handful parsley, cilantro or basil
  • 1 (16oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats or oat flour
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp salt (if beans are unsalted)
  • ground pepper (to taste)


  • With a food processor: Finely chop/grate the carrots and onions in the food processor. Add all the other ingredients and pulse until you get the texture you want. Some people like it “chunky” and others like it “smooth”.
    By hand or immersion blender: Chop or grate all veggies into very small pieces. Add all the other ingredients and mash with your hands until well mixed or use an immersion blender to mix all together.(If the mixture seems too runny or doesn’t stick together, cover and chill for 20 minutes.)
  • With wet or oiled hands, form small patties and place on a greased baking sheet.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-15 minutes per side or you can fry in a little bit of oil on the stovetop.

To freeze:

  • Form patties and freeze on a baking sheet. Once the patties are frozen, place a piece of waxed paper or parchment paper in between each patty and then place in a freezer bag. Cook from the frozen state.
