    What's Cooking?'s Note:

    This is my adaptation of a recipe from Cooking Light Magazine (03/07). These black bean burgers are a delicious vegetarian entree and reheat very well in a toaster oven or in a pan. I recommend serving them with rice, greens, salsa and sour cream. Be careful to fully drain the beans and cook the patties long enough so that they will stay together.

      This was a great recipe! Easy to make and the patties did stick together. I served it with Spanish Rice, sour cream and salsa.
