Step 1: Gather and Prepare Your Ingredients
1/2 onion - chopped
4 cloves of garlic
16 oz. cooked black beans
Approx. 1 medium sized roasted red pepper chopped
1 cup of Panko or your desired bread crumb
1 tsp. cumin
2 tsp. Chili Powder
1/2 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
Salt - to taste
1 Avocado - optional
Your choice of cheese - sliced
Your choice of toppings and buns
Add garlic to a food processor or mash together with 1/2 the amount of black beans.
Add the mixture from the food processor to a large bowl and continue to combine the ingredients.
Add in onions, roasted red peppers, bread crumbs, cumin, chilli powder, cayenne pepper, salt and the avocado.
Combine the ingredients well. Usually by hand works best. Then proceed to shape into burger patties. The recipe makes for four decent sized burgers.
*If you added the avocado and find the mixture too moist or not holding it's shape well add more bread crumb to the mixture.
Preheat oven to 350F
Meanwhile grill or panfry - with a little oil until browned or golden brown.
Place patties on a baking sheet, add cheese and place in oven for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Build your burgers and enjoy! Check out the video for an additional quick recipe on how to make your own Chili mayo for an additional topping.
