Black Bean Burgers

Submitted by: CSIMPSON75

Introduction

Easy delicious black bean burgers. Beware cooking on a grill as they are a bit fragile. Cook on tin foil if grilling. You can omit the egg for Vegan, but they don't stick together as well.

Ingredients

    2 15- to 16-ounce cans black beans, rinsed, drained
    1/2 cup chopped red onion
    1 egg
    2 cloves garlic
    1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs
    4 tablespoons bottled chunky salsa
    1/2 cup bottled chunky salsa
    1 teaspoon ground cumin


Directions

Using food processor, mash beans and garlic in medium bowl. Hand mix in onion, peppers, breadcrumbs, egg, 4 tablespoons salsa and cumin. Season with salt and pepper. Using moistened hands, shape bean mixture into two 3- to 4-inch-diameter patties.

Prepare grill (medium-high heat) or preheat broiler. Brush tin foil with oil or spray with Pam. Grill burgers on foil until heated through, about 3 minutes per side.

Grill cut sides of buns until lightly toasted, about 1 minute. Transfer burgers to bottom halves of buns. Spoon 1/4 cup salsa over each. Cover with tops of buns.

  • Delicious. My first shot at black bean burgers and they were terrific, I put them in the fridge for a couple hours per JESSMGC's advice and they were very easy to work with. - 1/22/09

  • I made these black bean burgers tonight for company. I loved them! We put a little avocado and FF sour cream on top. Delish! Oh, and I let them set in the fridge for a couple of hours before grilling and I didn't have any problems with fragility. - 8/4/08
