I am so very tired of grilled fake chicken patties and frozen black bean burgers for dinner! Does anyone have a recipe for real (vegetarian) black bean burgers? They can't be too hard to make, right?

Here is what i found. I haven't tried it. I just did a search on google.

1 (15 ounce) can no-salt added black beans, drained
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
3 green onions, chopped
1 cup salsa
1 carrot
1 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
6 OROWEAT® Cracked Wheat Buns
Nonstick cooking spray

Slice carrot and steam until soft. Combine carrot and black beans in a large bowl and mash together. Add remaining ingredients and salt and pepper to taste and mix well. Shape into 6 patties. (Additional bread crumbs or salsa can be added to help patties hold together.)

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook over medium heat about 5-8 minutes per side until lightly brown.

Makes 6 Servings
Serving Size: 1 bean patty

I used to mash black beans with some bread crumbs and sometimes egg if the beans were not mushy enough. I would add chili powder, garlic powder, cilantro and onion powder.
I would coat in bread crumbs and lightly fry them.

Then I would top with mango salsa.

YUM! You dont need a bun with these, they are SOOOOOOO good.

Leftovers would get wrapped in a tortilla and eaten for lunch the following day.
