Sautee onion and corn in water or coconut oil spray for ten minutes, until golden, soft, and fragrant.

Add beans and tomato sauce. Stir in the sautee pan till all is warm.

Dump rice into the bowl of a food processor. Add the beans, onion, tomato paste, and corn. Pulse quickly. Add spices, oat flour, and a touch of water, if you need it. Pulse more, until you have a thick and sticky but still textured mass. If it’s too wet, add a tbsp or two of additional oat flour.

Shape into 4-6 patties. Pan fry (I always use coconut oil spray) till nice and browned. Serve with fresh guac, if desired!
