Black Bean Burgers
Delicious! It's ok to be skeptical I think you wil find you are amazed at how much you like them!
Dovetailing Tip; Instead of using canned beans use the leftover beans from day 3 in these burgers.
|1/2||medium yellow onion, roughly chopped|
|1 tablespoon||chopped garlic|
|2 (15-ounce) cans||black beans, rinsed and drained, divided|
|2 tablespoons||freshly chopped cilantro leaves|
|2 teaspoons||freshly chopped parsley leaves|
|1/2 teaspoon||red pepper flakes|
|1/2 cup||bread crumbs|
|salt and fresh ground black pepper|
|4||small romaine lettuce leaves, or any other type you have on hand|
Heat a grill or grill pan over medium-low heat.
In a food processor, pulse onion and garlic until finely chopped. Add 1 can black beans, cilantro, parsley, egg, and red pepper flakes and pulse to combine.
Transfer mixture to a large mixing bowl, add the remaining can of black beans and the bread crumbs. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and mix until well combined.
Divide 2/3 mixture into 4 portions and form into patties. Save the remaining mixture for another use, like Black Bean Enchiladas. Place on hot oiled grill over medium-low heat and cook about 6 minutes a side or until heated through. Toast hamburger buns on a grill. Place a burger on the bottom of each bun. Top with lettuce, tomato and ketchup. Cover the burgers with the top of the bun and serve.
