Ingredients:

For the White Bean Burgers:

  • 3 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • ½ cup finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup minced shallots
  • 1 Tbsp minced fresh garlic
  • ¾ tsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • 1 Tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 2 15.5 oz cans Great Northern Beans, rinsed, drained and patted dry
  • ½ cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 Tbsp Soom Tahini
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • ¾ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 6 buns, lightly toasted
  • Optional toppings: sliced avocado, pickled red onion, arugula 

For the Tahini Special Sauce

  • 3 Tbsp Soom Tahini
  • 2 Tbsp Thai sweet chili sauce
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 grated garlic clove
  • ¼ tsp sweet paprika
  • 2 Tbsp warm water

Directions:

  1. Heat 1 Tbsp oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add bell pepper and shallots; cook 4 to 5 minutes, until softened. Stir in garlic, paprika, cumin, and oregano; cook 1 more minute, until aromatic. Transfer mixture to a large bowl and let cool 10 minutes.
  2. Combine ground flaxseed with 2 ½ Tbsp warm water in a small bowl; mix well. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  3. Add beans to the bowl with the bell pepper mixture. Use a potato masher or fork to mash beans until about two-thirds are fully mashed, and the remaining are mostly whole or in chunks. Add breadcrumbs, tahini, mustard, salt, pepper, and flaxseed mixture; mix well to combine. Chill for a minimum of 30 minutes, or up to 4 hours.
  4. While burgers chill, prepare the Tahini Special Sauce by combining all ingredients in a small bowl and whisking until smooth.
  5. Remove the burger mixture from fridge and form into 6 uniform patties. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet or plate.
  6. Heat remaining 2 Tbsp oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add half the burgers. Cook 4 minutes per side, until browned and slightly crisp. Repeat with remaining 3 burger patties.
  7. Spread the Tahini Special Sauce on each half of toasted buns, and add one burger patty to each. Add toppings of choice, and enjoy!
