This Black Bean Burger recipe is equally delicious for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike! Its hearty and simple to prepare, with bold flavor and a great texture.
Even though a black bean burger is typically thought of as a vegetarian substitute for beef, I find them to be gloriously delicious in their own right, and I say this as someone who eats meat.
|Black beans||30 Ounce (((((2 15oz cans)))))|
|Dry breadcrumbs||1/2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Garlic powder||1/2 Teaspoon|
|Onion powder||1/2 Teaspoon|
|Ground cumin||1/2 Teaspoon|
|Salt and pepper||To Taste|
|Monterey jack cheese slice||4|
|Olive oil||2 Tablespoon (((((for grilling)))))|
|Hamburger buns||4 (((((toasted)))))|
Place the black beans on a flat surface and mash them well with a fork.
Place in a bowl and add the breadcrumbs, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, paprika, and egg. Mix together well.
Form this mixture into four patties, then grill them on a griddle or in a skillet over medium high heat for 5 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
Prepare the burgers as desired, with mayonnaise spread on the buns, and with lettuce, tomato, and melted cheese.
