Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Rinse and drain the beans and spread them out on a baking sheet in a single layer. Blot them gently with a paper towel to get rid of the extra moisture. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes to help them dry out.
Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a pan over medium high heat. Cook the pepper, onion and garlic for about 5 minutes or until softened and fragrant.
Combine all of the ingredients, including the beans, in a food processor and lightly pulse until combined, but still slightly chunky. You don't want the consistency to turn completely into mush.
Adjust the temperature of the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Form the bean mixture into 8 evenly sized patties and place on the parchment paper, leaving about an inch between each patty.
Bake for 20-25 minutes. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for at least 10-15 minutes, which will give them time to firm up.
Serve in a bun, in a lettuce wrap or along with a salad!
