1 Tbsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 can (15.25 oz) black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1 tsp grated lime zest
3/4 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 tsp salt
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
6 whole wheat burger buns
1/2 avocado, sliced (optional)
Lettuce and tomato (optional)
1/2 red onion, sliced (optional)
- In a food processor, combine the oil, garlic and beans; pulse 8 times or until beans make a thick paste. In a large bowl, combine bean mixture and bread crumbs. Stir in lime zest, chili powder, cilantro, salt and eggs. With moistened hands, divide bean mixture into 6 patties (about 1/3 cup each).
- Lightly coat a large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray and heat to medium high. Add patties to pan; reduce heat to medium and cook for about 3 minutes, or until bottom edges are browned. Turn patties over; cook for 3 minutes, or until bottom edges are brown.
- Arrange the patties on the buns and top with the avocado, lettuce, tomato and red onion, if desired.
- 1 burger
