*1/2 cup shredded carrots

*1 medium bell pepper of any color, seeded and quartered

*1/2 to 1 medium jalapeño pepper, seeded and halved

*2 Cans Black Beans, Rinsed and Drained


*Preheat oven to 300*F. Line a large baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside. 

*In the bowl of a food processor, place all the ingredients except the black beans. Pulse for 30 seconds, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary, until the ingredients are finely chopped but still have a some texture. 

*Add in 3/4 of the black beans (note: not 3/4 cup, 3/4 of all the beans) and continue to pulse with the food processor for another 30 seconds to 1 minute, until the beans start to break down and ingredients begin to hold together. 

*Transfer mixture to a mixing bowl and stirr in the remaining black beans by hand. Form mixture into six patties and place on baking sheet.
