Jalapeno-Red Bean-BBQ Burgers

"Moist, delicious vegetarian alternative to boring frozen veggie burgers. These are easy to make and taste wonderful on whole-grain buns with some cheddar cheese, tomato and lettuce for crunch. Be watchful while cooking these ... the sugar content in the barbecue sauce can cause the burgers to blacken kind of quickly. Tastes great on the grill, too ... just keep an eye on them!"

directions

  • Heat oil in nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  • Add next onion, plum tomato, jalapeno, garlic and chili powder; sauté 5 minutes.
  • Cool slightly.
  • Using fork, coarsely mash beans in bowl.
  • Combine with onion mixture, breadcrumbs, 2 tablespoons of the barbecue sauce and egg white.
  • Shape mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties.
  • (Can be prepared 4 hours ahead. Cover and chill.) It will look as though these little burgers will just fall apart and turn to mush, but they stay together really well once they"hit the pan"!
  • If grilling, oil the rack or spray grill rack with nonstick spray, then fire up coals to medium heat.
  • If pan-frying, heat a little olive oil over medium heat.
  • Place patties on grill or in skillet and cook until golden brown and heated through, about three minutes per side.
  • Place burgers on buns.
  • Serve with more barbecue sauce, and cheese, tomato, lettuce, avocado, or whatever topping you like!

    I'm a regular burger type of guy, but wanted to give this recipe a try. I normally don't like veggie burgers but man this one was AWESOME. They held together nicely and were packed with flavor!

    Very tasty! Best veggie burgers I've tried. Omitted the egg white but otherwise made as directed. I cooked the veggies/spices down to a paste before combining with other ingredients and everything stayed together well when pan fried. Used a spicy BBQ sauce that added to the flavor. I'll definitely make them again!
