Salsa Black Bean Burgers Recipe
We had enough hamburger meat for one person. I didn't want to take more out of the freezer and I decided to make a burger for me too, but used black beans.
I found this recipe on a TOH board. Black beans have always been a favorite and Gabe got to have his red meat and I did a meat free night. Worked out nicely.
1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
2/3 cup dry bread crumbs (used hot chipotle panko)
1 small tomato, seeded and finely chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1 teaspoon minced fresh cilantro
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 hamburger buns, split
Chopped the garlic and jalapeno on the food processor and then added the beans. Pulsed a few times and then added the tomato and pulsed for another minute.
Transferred to a large bowl and added the panko, cilantro and the egg.
Mix until combined and shape into patties. You should get 4 patties.
In a large nonstick skillet, cook patties in oil in batches over medium heat for 4-6 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Serve on buns. Top with sour cream and guacamole if desired. Yield: 4 servings.
