Black Bean-Pea Burgers

Are you one of those people who like peas?? Well if you are, this is your lucky day! :) Veggie burgers are one of my favourite ways to fulfill that "hearty protein" meal I usually crave a few times a week. Peas blend really well and add that much needed starchiness to keep these burgers sticking together. 

Burger in a salad nest
1 1/2 cups black beans
1 1/2 cup cooked peas
1/4 cup water
2 tbsp tahini
1-2 tbsp tamari
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp sea salt
Freshly ground pepper

Combine black beans, peas, water, tamari, and tahini in a food processor until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and stir in spices, and flour. Form into 7-8 patties. Bake for 20 minutes in a 350F oven. Serve over salad or in a whole-grain bun. Top with tahini sauce.
