A delicious alternative to your regular burger! I can't wait to try these! *NOTE* Tip: Patties are very tender and can break, so use 2 spatulas for support when you flip them.
- 15 ounces black beans, rinsed and drained, divided
- 1⁄3 cup green onion top
- 1⁄4 cup plain breadcrumbs
- 1⁄4 cup corn
- 1⁄4 cup chopped roasted red pepper
- 1 egg white
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper (to taste)
- nonstick cooking spray
- 6 whole wheat hamburger buns
- salsa (optional)
- avocado, slices (optional)
- Place half the beans in bowl of food processor fitted with metal blade. Add remaining ingredients except buns, salsa, avocado and reserved beans.
- Pulse 30 to 40 seconds until mixture begins to hold together. Add remaining beans; pulse 3 to 4 times until just mixed. Let sit 20 minutes at room temperature for flavors to develop.
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Shape mixture into 6 patties (about 1/4 cup each). Spray 12-inch skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Add 4 patties; cook, covered, 4 to 5 minutes or until browned. Spray tops of patties with cooking spray; turn and cook other side 4 to 5 minutes or until browned. Repeat with remaining patties.
- For firmer patties, place browned patties on baking sheet; bake 12 to 15 minutes. Or, for moister patties, serve after pan-frying. Serve between buns topped with salsa and avocado slices, if desired.
