    Arbonne's amazing carb free Daily Protein Boost = pure vegan, alkaline protein and no carbs

    Arbonne’s amazing carb free Daily Protein Boost = pure vegan, alkaline protein and no carbs. The Boost provides extra protein in this black bean veggie burger recipes and works well in other similar recipes.

  • 1/2 cup gluten free oats
  • 1/2 a red pepper, small diced
  • 1/4 a red onion, small diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil – first cold pressed is best!
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 2 15oz cans black beans, drained and rinsed – try to use organic BPA free black beans
  • 1 cup brown rice, cooked (or quinoa)

*In this Black Bean Veggie Burger, we are adding Arbonne’s Daily Protein Boost, an amazing vegan protein powder with only three ingredients: pea protein, rice protein, cranberry protein.

Directions

Preheat oven to 375

  1. Warm the oilve oil over medium heat. Add the red pepper, onion and garlic and sauté until tender (about 5 minutes).
  2. In a food processor, combine powder, oats, spices, sautéed peppers and onions and garlic, and black beans. Pulse until coarse.
  3.  Pour into a bowl and fold in the rice. Using a 1/2 cup measure, scoop out the burgers and flatten on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, rotate, and then bake another 15 minutes. Enjoy!
Notes & Tips
  • Instead of regular bread as bun, try cabbage or collard leaves for kapha, gluten-free bread for pitta and grilled portobello mushroom for vata.
  • For Kapha sensitivities – this recipe is ok in moderation, but add 2 scoops of protein instead of one and one 1/4 cup oats;
  • For Pitta sensitivities – omit chilli pepper and use fresh garlic instead of powdered;
  • For Vata sensitivities -omit or reduce chilli pepper and substitute black beans for cooked lentils (soak lentils over night before using); Vata has a hard time digesting beans.
  • The Arbonne Daily Protein Boost works well in all veggie burgers, alfredo style sauces and also in smoothies, pancakes and other baked goods because it has a neutral flavour. Note, according to Lauren, this protein powder has a tendency to neutralize sweet and salty taste, so you may need to compensate.
