¼ cup roasted red pepper, chopped

1 tbsp Montreal Steak Spice

1 egg
1 1/2 tsp liquid smoke
½ cup rolled oats
1⁄8 cup all-purpose flour
1 tbsp of oil
Pinch of salt & pepper

1. Cook Mochi Barley according to package and set aside to cool

2. In a mixing bowl add the cooked and cooled Mochi Barley, pureed black beans, red pepper,corn, sweet onions, garlic, Montreal steak spice, dried oregano together. Add the egg, liquid smoke, salt & pepper, rolled oats, and flour. Mix until everything is combined.

3. Shape each burger to be about ¼ inch thick. In a heated nonstick pan, add a tablespoon of oil and fry each side for approximately 5 minutes each.
