Hempseeds form the basis for these delicious, plant-based burgers (along with black beans and brown rice). Less well known than the hemp plant's more notable offerings, hempseeds provide a good source of protein along with an impressive profile of essential fatty acids.
2 cups cooked or canned black beans
1 cup cooked short-grain brown rice
1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
1/2 cup shelled hempseeds
1/4 cup rolled oats
2 tbsp almond butter
2 tsp olive oil (plus 1/2 cup for cooking)
1 small onion, diced
1 tsp poultry seasoning (dried parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme)
1 tsp sea salt
pinch chili powder
Yields 6 burgers
