When I was introduced to Black Bean Burgers I was very skeptical first because I don't like burgers and second because Black Bean Burgers sounds weird. Until I tasted them - seriously, that was so good that since then I've been eating Black bean burgers almost every other day. Now I also know how easy it is to make them at home (the other option of course is to buy them at the grocery store).
Black Bean Burgers
1 (2 oz) hamburger bun, torn in pieces
3 tbsp olive oil
2 teaspoons chopped garlic
1 (15,5 oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 tsp garted lime rind
¾ tsp chili powder
½ tsp chopped fresh oregano
¼ tsp salt
1 larg egg, lightly beaten
1 large egg white, lightly beaten
Place bun in food processor; process 4 times or until crumbs measure about 1 cup. Transfer to a bowl.
Combine 1 tbsp oil, garlic and beans in processor, pulse 8 times or until beans make a thick paste. Scrape the bean mixture into bowl with breadcrumbs.
Stir in rind and remaining ingredients.
With moistened hands, divide bean mixture into 4 equal portions (abot 1/3 cup mixture per portion), shaping each into a 3-inch patty.
