Vegan Black Bean Steak n Onions
If you are a fan of black beans and did not know you can make them into a patty or some alternative meat kind, well here is a recipe for you!
I ventured out and decided to make a patty that would be quite savory. I must say this recipe is a gluten free one as well. My mom is on a strict gluten free diet and I decided to create this recipe.
What you will need:
1 can Organic Black beans drained, rinsed, mashed
1 onion chopped
1 Large Onion sliced
fresh thyme or dried
2 table spoons spike seasoning
1 cup gluten free corn meal or corn meal if not a gluten free diet
1 to 2 cups gluten free all purpose flower or regular flour
1 table spoon sea salt
2 table spoon Olive oil
Any of your favorite dry seasonings are a good thing too.
1/2 cup water
Additional Oil for cooking
Pre-heat oven to 170 degrees
Combine all ingredients except corn meal and sliced onions. Batter should be thick enough to form a patty. It should be soft enough for you to form but not thick to the point that it will turn out too pasty. Form patties and carefully coat them with cornmeal.
Place patty into hot pan with oil. Be careful not to cause oil to splash and burn you. You can use a spatula to place your patty in. Fry until golden brown or just brown. Once the patty is done, place it into the oven in a pan. Repeat until batter is done.
In a new pan with hot oil, place sliced onions in pan and saute onion s until slightly soft. Once done place a top patties as seen in picture.
I hope your patties turn out as good as mine were. Enjoy and I look forward to hearing about your Black Bean Patties here on Tasty Eden treats.
