Getty Center Mexican Black Bean Burgers
Makes 8 burgers
3 lb cooked black beans rinsed and drained
1/4 c diced onion
1/2 c diced red bell pepper
1 ts cayenne pepper
1 egg substitute
1 c bread crumbs
2 TB cilantro
2 TB olive oil
8 hamburger buns; mixed grain
Put beans, onion, bell pepper, cayenne pepper, egg, bread crumbs and cilantro in food processor. Process, adding more bread crumbs as needed to make a mixture dry enough to form into patties.
Shape into 8 patties. Patties may be made a day ahead and refrigerated to allow them to set well.
Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add 4 patties and fry 2 minutes per side, turning once. Add remaining tablespoon of olive oil and the remaining 4 patties and cook.
Place each patty in a hamburger roll and serve with salsa and guacamole, if desired.
