Easy Black Bean Burgers

Given to me by a friend a while ago,
these are one of those recipes that I do repeat. (I only have a handful or so)
But this one is so easy, fast, and everyone likes them. Eat them like a regular hamburger with tomato, lettuce, avocado!, or even saute'd mushrooms (my husbands favorite).


1 can black beans rinsed

2 green onions thinly chopped

⅓ C chopped red bell pepper

1 tbs. chopped fresh cilantro

¾ C dried plain bed crumbs (or whole wheat bread crumbs)

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tbs salsa

1 tbs lime juice

S&P to taste

⅛ tsp cumin

2 tbs cornmeal

2 tbs canola oil

4 whole wheat buns

1. Measure ½ C black beans and set aside. Place remaining beans in food processor and puree. Add green onions, red peppers, cilantro, bread crumbs, garlic, salsa, lime juice, and S&P to taste. Process until well combined. Remove to another bowl and add rest of beans. Form into 4 or 5 patties.

2. In shallow bowl mix cornmeal and cumin. Dredge patties in mixture. Heat 1 tbs oil in pan and saute burgers. Until golden and slightly crispy.

  1. Can't wait to try these! It reminds me of the Dinner Loaf I made last night with black beans (from! Yum!

  2. Those look delicious! Just wanted to let you know that I can't see what you've typed unless I click on it. At least that is what I'm seeing :P
