DIRECTIONS

  • Get your grill going with a medium-hot fire.
  • Lightly oil a vegetable grill rack and put it in place.
  • Saute your onions in a skillet on the stove, cooking until they are golden brown - about 4 minutes.
  • Add the mushrooms, garlic and cumin. Cook until the mushrooms have released their juices - about 5 minutes.
  • Spoon the mixture into the food processor. Add the beans and cilantro and process briefly - you want it mixed but still chunky.
  • Put this mixture into a bowl and stir in the goat cheese if you are using it. Also add the bread crumbs. Season with salt and pepper and mix.
  • Form into patties.
  • Brush both sides of the patties with oil or spray with Pam to insure they don't stick to the grill.
  • Grill until crisp and heated through, about 5 minutes per side.
  • Serve. Salsa makes a great condiment for these burgers!
