Black Bean Burgers
I saw these burgers HERE. I really like the flavor and they hold together a lot better than I expected. We put them on THESE buns!
¾ cup panko
30 oz black beans (I make mine in the crockpot so I don't have to worry about rising them.)
1 t. cumin
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. cayenne
1 red bell pepper, diced
1/4 c. fresh cilantro, minced
1 shallot, minced
Heat skillet to medium-high. Combine panko with 2 t. olive oil and mix. Add to skillet and toast. Stir frequently until golden. Remove from heat and cool.
Put 2 1/2 c. beans in a large bowl and mash until smooth. In a small bowl, whist eggs. 1 T. oil, cumin, salt and cayenne. Add egg mixture, toasted panko and 1/2 c. beans, pepper, cilantro and shallow to the mashed beans. Stir together.
Make 6 patties about 1 inch thick. (They can be wrapped in plastic wrap to be refrigerated for up to 24 hrs.) Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook patties 4 to 5 minutes on each side. Serve warm.
