Mexican Black Bean Burgers May 19, 2009

Mexican Black Bean Burgers
adapted from Homemade Bean Burgers at Kath Eats Real Food

1 1/3 cups cooked black beans
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. cumin
Pinch dried oregano
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 cup diced red onion
1/4 cup diced, seeded roma tomato
1/4 cup cooked corn kernels
1/4 cup finely diced fresh cilantro
1 medium avocado
4 whole wheat buns

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
