For the burgers:


  1. Add flax meal and 5 tablespoons water in a small bowl; stir. Set aside in the fridge.
  2. To a medium saucepan, add wild rice and 2 cups water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cover; cook for 40-45 minutes, until rice is tender and has soaked up all the water.
  3. While the rice is cooking, heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add onion; cook for 5-7 minutes. Add bell pepper and jalapeño; cook until the vegetables are tender, about 5-7 minutes, stirring often. Add mushrooms; cook for 5 minutes. Add garlic; cook for 1 minute, making sure not to burn the garlic. Remove from heat.
  4. In a large bowl, add black beans; mash with a potato masher or fork, leaving some texture. Add cooked rice, sautéed vegetables, soy sauce, liquid smoke, paprika, cumin, pepper, and reserved flax meal mixture. Stir until combined. Add oat flour; mix until ingredients are evenly combined.
  5. Using a ½-cup scoop, form each patty (you should have 8 patties). Place on a baking sheet and slightly flatten. Place the baking sheet in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  6. To a skillet over medium heat, add a little oil. When hot, add patties. Cook for 8-10 minutes, until crispy; flip and cook for 8-10 minutes on the other side. Repeat for all patties.
  7. Serve each patty on a bun with romaine, tomato slices, avocado slices, ketchup, and other desired toppings.


*To make your own own oat flour, simply blend rolled oats into a fine flour using a high-speed blender or food processor.
