Makes eight burgers about 3 ½ inches in diameter.Blackened seasoning mix adapted from Ashlie of The Delshad DuoIf omitting the egg, you may need to add more almond flour and your burgers might be slightly softer in texture. Therefore, cooking a bit longer may be needed if you want a more burger-like texture. (See readers' notes in comments for the changes they made for egg-free versions.) For either version of this recipe, remember not to mash the beans so much that you have a mushy mess; you want some whole or half beans remaining for a better burger appearance, taste, and texture. (That means the mixture should not look like it’s been through a food processor.) I’m sure these burgers could also be broiled or grilled, instead of pan cooked. Broiling/grilling about 2-3 minutes on each side should do the trick and give a very nice blackened appearance and taste. I actually slightly undercooked the burgers shown here just to provide better photos.
