Black Bean Burgers

  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1⁄2 red capsicum, roughly chopped
  • 1⁄2 cup roughly chopped spring onions
  • 3 tablespoons roughly chopped coriander
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1⁄2 cup oats

  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
  • cooking spray
  • 4 rolls
  • 1 medium avocado, thinly sliced

 

Method

For the spicy chipotle mayo, in a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise and chipotle and set aside. For the black bean burgers, dry the beans well after rinsing put the beans in a medium bowl and mash them with a fork until thick and pasty. In a food processor, combine the capsicum, spring onions, coriander and garlic and mix until finely chopped. Add the oats, egg, hot sauce, cumin, and salt and mix, until mixed well. Fold the mixture into the mashed beans. Form the mixture into four patties and put them on a baking sheet. Freeze for at least two hours before cooking. To cook, heat a non-stick pan over medium heat. Lightly spray the pan with oil and cook the frozen burgers until browned. To serve, place the burgers on the rolls, and top with the spicy chipotle mayo and avocado slices.

    This recipe I will certainly try. Black beans are good for healing the liver, apparently.
    We need to cut down on all the sugar and white flour if we want to live longer.
