Black Bean Burgers

I've expressed before that one of my favorite things are burgers, so naturally, I've tried experiments with all sorts of burgers. Different meats, toppings, buns- I love them all! I recently realized that I had never attempted a black bean burger, and after seeing a recipe in this month's Gourmet, I decided to give it a shot. All the carnivores loved them :)

Black Bean Burgers

3 cans black beans, rinsed
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons freshly chopped cilantro
2 teaspoons oregano
1 teaspoon chili powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Kaiser rolls

Mash beans and combine with garlic, onion, bread crumbs, oil, cilantro and spices and form into 6 patties. Cook on a nonstick skillet over medium heat, about 5 minutes on each side. Top with homemade guacamole and hummus and serve with a side of oven roasted potatoes.

Bean burgers are the best. In Mexico we have one that we call Mexican burger and it is prepared with different kinds of beans. The taste is delicious!

I would bet that your recipe is good. I am not fond of the premade black bean burgers in the frozen section.
I will give it a try.
