These lightly-spiced, savory black bean burgers topped with creamy avocado are just the dinner for a night like this!
|1 1⁄3 c||black beans (cooked)|
|1⁄4 c||whole wheat flour|
|1 t||garlic powder|
|1 pn||dried oregano|
|salt (to taste)|
|pepper (to taste)|
|1⁄4 c||red onion (diced)|
|1⁄4 c||corn kernels (cooked)|
|1⁄4 c||fresh cilantro (finely diced)|
|4||whole wheat bun|
Directions: Mash the first six ingredients together. Mixture will be slightly dry, so add water as needed until the mixture becomes moistened. Add the onion, tomato, corn and cilantro; mix well. Meanwhile, divide the bean mixture into fourths and form four patties by hand. Heat a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Spray the saucepan with cooking spray, and cook the patties on each side for 3 to 5 minutes. Resist the urge to flip them or check on them too soon; just let them sit there and cook. Once the burgers are done, slice the avocado into strips and split between the four burgers. Smoosh on a bun, top with condiments of your choice and enjoy! Makes 4 burgers.
