In case you haven't noticed, we like beans in our apartment. They're the magical fruit... *insert childish song here* They're full of protein and all kinds of vitamins and healthy things for you! And a good replacement for meat in a vegetarian household! This time we decided to make Black Bean Burgers! mmmm....
What You Need:
1 can black beans
cumin & chili powder
1 (small) can of chopped chilies
1c. bread crumbs
handful of cornmeal (or since we didn't have cornmeal, we just used cornstarch...though it didn't really work...)
Dump the black beans, undrained, into a food processor with some cumin and chili powder. Blend just until mashed. Remove and put into a mixing bowl. Mix with chilies, bread crumbs, and egg. Shape into burger patties and slightly coat with cornmeal. Cook over medium heat for about 10-15 minutes.
Now, we also made a chili mayonnaise to dress our burgers up with. Save some of your chilies to mix in with some mayo and you're done! Top with whatever you like putting on your burgers. We sauteed some mushrooms. We also topped ours with salsa and lettuce! mmmmhmmmmm.
