Black Bean Burgers
Black bean burgers are delicious and nutritious served on a whole wheat bun with sliced red onion and mustard. These burgers are high in protein and low in fat. A perfect combination.
Black beans – 2 cans (drained and rinsed)
Mushrooms – 4 or 5 large
Red pepper – one half of a large
Red onion – less than a half
Oatmeal – ¼ of a cup
*the oatmeal replaces the bread crumbs you see in many black bean burger recipes.
Cilantro – about a tablespoon
Salt and pepper to taste
Whole wheat burger buns
Sliced red onion
Put the ingredients in a food processor one at a time in this order: oatmeal, mushrooms, red pepper, black beans. I finely chopped the red onion by hand.
In a large bow, mix all of the ingredients with the garlic, cilantro and salt and pepper. Press into patties.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Turn and bake for 15 more.
Serve with fruit salad.
