Notes: 

To make garlic hemp aioli, check out the following: https://www.nzhempfoods.co.nz/recipe/garlic-hemp-aioli/

If you wish you can add 1/2 a beaten egg to bind the mixture though you may need to add more black beans and/or hemp protein if the mixture becomes to wet.

You may choose to grill the patties in the oven instead of pan frying.
