  • 2 T. ketchup
  • 2/3 cup quick oats

  1. Saute onion and garlic in oil till golden, soft and fragrant. Add 2 cups of the beans, cumin, paprika, chili powder, salt and peppers to taste. Stir till all is warm. Preheat oven to 350-degrees.
  2. Add the oats to the bowl of a processor and pulse a few times. Add the onion, garlic and bean mixture.
  3. Process until well combined but still has texture. Transfer mixture to a bowl. Add the last cup of beans and the corn and mix well. If the mixture is too mushy to form into patties, add a little more oats or bread crumbs.
