Black Bean Burger

This is a simple, filling and delicious all bean burger that both me and boyfriend love! It's super easy to make and full of fiber and healthy goodness. Here is what you need for 2 MASSIVE or 3 medium burger patties.
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed,
  • 3 tbs corn meal,
  • 2 egg white,
  • 2 green onions, chopped fine,
  • 2 tbs red onions, diced fine
  • 2 tbs corn, (from can)
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • dash cayenne
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
I rinsed and drained the beans, added the cornmeal and mashed the heck out of them with a fork. This will take a few minutes of effort but it's well worth it. Don't over mash. Leaving bigger chunks of bean here and there helps add great texture to the burgers.

Now add ALL of the other ingredients.

Mix and mash the mixture with your hands until it's well mixed and form your patties. You can make 3 nice size burgers or two MASSIVE ones like I did below.

While you are forming the patties start heating a skillet on medium heat. Spray the pan with Pam (or you can use olive oil) and make sure it is well coated.

They will need roughly 8-10 minutes on each side. You just want to make sure that they brown enough of both sides so that they don't fall apart when you flip them.

I like to top mine with fat free cheese and ketchup. Also good would be fresh avocado slices or sauteed onions. YUM!!

Hope you like it! :)
