Place beans in a large bowl and mash with a pastry cutter. Don’t turn them into a paste, leave chunks in them for texture.

Place tempeh in food processor with lime juice and garlic. Pulse a few times to break apart.

Add veggies and pulse until everything is coarsely chopped to a texture you are happy with.

Mix the veggie/tempheh mixture into the beans. Add the spices and flax meal. The mixture should be pretty dry.

Add the chia gel and the olive oil. Mix well.

Form into 6 equal sized patties and place on a cookie sheet.

Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for at least 2 hours.

Sprayed a cast-iron griddle with non-stick spray and cooked the burgers on medium heat.
