Dried black beans/2 cans of black beans but without the bisphenol a / boa lining 3 1⁄2 Cup (56 tbs) , picked over and rinsed
Onion 1 , finely chopped
Fresh cilantro sprigs 3
Garlic 3 Clove (15 gm) , smashed, skins removed
Mayonnaise/Greek yogurt 4 Tablespoon
Bread crumbs/Gluten free crackers 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
Ground coriander 2 1⁄2 Teaspoon
Ground chipotle seasoning 1⁄2 Teaspoon
Chopped cilantro 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
Burger buns 4

If using dried black beans, soak overnight. Bring beans, onion, garlic and cilantro sprigs to a boil in a large wide pot. Cover with water. Water level should be at least 3-4 inches above beans. Reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, until beans are completely tender about 1.5-2 hours (if you cook them al dente you will have a grainy texture). When beans begin to tenderize, add a few pinches of salt. Drain beans and discard cilantro sprigs.

In a food processor or blender, pulse half of bean mixture with onions, garlic, mayonnaise, bread crumbs, coriander and chipotle until combined. Transfer to a bowl and stir in remaining bean mixture. Make 4 burger patties.

Heat oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Cook burgers until they are crisp and lightly browned, turning once. Total cook time is about 5-7 minutes (if you make thick burgers cooking time will be longer). Serve on buns immediately and garnish with your favorite accompaniments!
