Black Bean Burgers

click site We try to have meatless meals several times a week, and these black bean burgers are a favorite. I found the recipe on Allrecipes.com and after giving them a try, I was sold. They’re flavorful and quick to make, and they freeze well*.  You can serve them on a traditional hamburger bun, but I like them best on a toasted English muffin, topped with sliced avocado, lettuce, tomato, cheese, and chipotle mayo (see directions below).

Ingredients
  1. 1 (16 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  2. 1/2 green bell pepper, finely chopped
  3. 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  4. 3 cloves garlic, minced
  5. 1 egg
  6. 1 tablespoon chili powder
  7. 1 tablespoon cumin
  8. 1 teaspoon Thai chili sauce or hot sauce
  9. 1/2 cup bread crumbs
Instructions
  1. If grilling, preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil a sheet of aluminum foil. If baking, preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C), and lightly oil a baking sheet.
  2. In a medium bowl, mash black beans with a fork until thick and pasty.
  3. Finely chop bell pepper, onion, and garlic. Then stir into mashed beans.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together egg, chili powder, cumin, and chili sauce or hot sauce.
  5. Stir the egg mixture into the mashed beans. Mix in bread crumbs until the mixture is sticky and holds together. Divide mixture into four patties.
  6. If grilling, place patties on foil, and grill about 8 minutes on each side. If baking, place patties on baking sheet, and bake about 10 minutes on each side.
  7. Serve on rolls with lettuce, tomato, cheese, sliced avocado, and chipotle mayo (mix ¼ cup mayonnaise with 2 teaspoons chipotle hot sauce).
Notes
  1. *To freeze: After forming the mixture into patties, wrap them in wax paper, put them in a resealable bag, and pop them in the freezer. Defrost on the counter for a few hours and then bake according the recipe directions.
