BURGER (Fish, Turkey, Chicken, Black Bean) from Go with Your Gut by Robyn Youkilis


- 1 pound ground meat/fish or 2 (15-ounce) cans black beans, drained and rinsed

- 1 egg white, beaten

- 1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut

- 1 tbsp garlic powder

- 1 tbsp minced onion flakes

- 1/4 cup tamari or coconut aminos

- 1-2 tablespoons coconut oil


1. If using beans, grind them in a food processor until crumbly. If using fish you can ask your fishmonger to grind for you or grind at home using same process as beans. If you don't have a food processor you can chop beans or fish finely with a knife.

2. Mix ground protein in a large bowl with the remaining ingredients and shape into 4 large patties or 6 mini patties.

3. Add the oil to your skillet and cook the burgers over medium heat until golden brown on the bottom, 3 to 6 minutes depending on protein. Flip the burgers over.

2. Reduce the heat to low and cook for another 5 minutes, until brown or crisp. Serve immediately with traditional burger toppings or on top of a salad or in a lettuce wrap.

Notes: You can also bake these in the oven at 350*F until cooked through to your liking. The bean burgers can be a bit crumbly when serving, but they're still delicious!
