Recipe type: Main, Entree
  • 1 15 oz. Can Black Beans
  • ½ whole Onion, Cut Into Wedges
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Peeled And Rough Chopped
  • 1 whole Red Pepper, Stem And Seeds Removed, Chopped
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder

  • Tomato Slices

  1. Drain the can of black beans. In a mixing bowl, mash the black beans with a fork or a potato masher.
  2. Use a food processor to chop the onion, garlic, and red pepper until very fine. Stir the mixture in with the beans.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the egg, cumin, onion powder, chili powder, Sriracha and cilantro. Add this to the bean mixture and combine well.
  4. If the mixture has a lot of liquid, strain with a cheesecloth or let it strain through a colander with very fine holes. Once the excess liquid has drained off, return the bean mixture to the bowl and stir in the bread crumbs.
  5. Use your hands to form four evenly sized patties.
  6. Heat the oil in a skillet on medium high heat. Cook burgers in the pan until heated through and slightly browned on both sides.
  7. Put the burger on top of a onion bun. Dress with lettuce, tomato and Dijon musturd!

    Black beans are a staple in our house. I love the fact that we’re able to make recipes from scratch at home that cost less and even taste better. I can’t believe how expensive veggies burgers are at the store. We love spicy foods and are always looking for vegetarian dishes to add to our weekly meal plan.
