Recipe Ingredients for Black Bean Burger

1 cup black beans (Shelley cooks extra and freezes*)
1/4 cup green pepper, chopped fine
1/4 cup red onion, chopped fine
1/2 stalk celery, chopped fine
2 cloves garlic minced (depends how much you like garlic)
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup salsa
1/4 cup rolled oats
1 slices bread, crumbled into tiny pieces (hint: blender or food processor works great)

Recipe Directions for Black Bean Burger

  1. Mash or puree half the beans

  2. Add reserved beans and all other ingredients EXCEPT hummus and cracker crumbs

  3. Mix well by hand

  4. Add enough of the salsa or other liquid ingredient to moisten mixture fairly well

  5. Mixture may seem a little sticky, but it's better than a bit dry, because they WILL dry out while cooking

  6. Form flat patties and coat with crumbs if desired. Crumbs make a nice crispy outside.

  7. Cook on medium until brown, approx. 10 - 15 min per side.

  8. Fantastic with a little brown mustard, horseradish and sweet pickle
