If you’re looking for a delicious, inexpensive burger, try these Black Bean Burgers!
Don’t be afraid to experiment with additional seasonings too, such as italian seasoning or cayenne, a drop or two of liquid smoke, can really pack a punch of flavor…
15-oz can black beans, drained and rinsed (or white beans, or a mix of the two)
1/4 cup dried breadcrumbs
1 large egg, beaten
2 tbs dried onion flakes
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1 tbs canola oil
Place the black beans in a medium-sized bowl. With the back of a fork, partially mash the beans until they are able to be shaped into a patty. Add the breadcrumbs, egg, worcestershire sauce, and black pepper, and mix together well.
Heat the canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Use 1/4 of the bean mixture for each patty. Shape each portion into patties that are about 3/4-inch thick.
Place the patties into the skillet, and cook on each side about 4 minutes, or until the patties becomes lightly browned and are firm.
Serve each patty on a whole wheat bun, and finish off with the burger toppings you desire.
