Black Bean Burger Recipe

(My husband cooks a mean) Black Bean Burger!

1/4 cup diced onion
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
Optional: 1 tsp. chili powder, chopped red bell pepper, spices of your choice.

Drain & mash black beans, but leave moist.  Combine all ingredients together and form into small patties, 2 1/2-3 inches in diameter.  (You want the patties to be smaller than a traditional burger, as it will flatten/spread out on the bun.)  Cook in skillet on medium heat in safflower or extra-virgin olive oil until brown/blackened on both sides.  (Approximately 10 minutes per side.)  Serve on whole wheat hamburger buns or Pepperidge Farm Whole Wheat Deli Flats  Serve with your favorite toppings:  sprouts, lettuce, sliced avocado, tomato, sliced veggie cheese, etc.

Makes approximately 6-7 burgers
