Recipe Ingredients for Black Bean Burgers

1 1/2 cups black beans
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
2 large eggs
4 scallions
2 garlic cloves
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 jalapeno pepper

Recipe Directions for Black Bean Burgers

  1. Place 2 cups of the black beans in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until chunky.

  2. Transfer to a large mixing bowl. Add remaining whole black beans, plus panko, eggs, scallions, fresh herbs, garlic, cumin, oregano and red pepper flakes and mix until well combined.

  3. Using a dough cutter, portion mixture into patties about 1 inch thick. Suggested diameter: 3 inches; otherwise, the patty will be difficult to flip when cooking. KOD extra step that's worth doing: Place patties on a plate or tray and chill for 15 minutes so they can set up.

  4. When ready to cook, remove patties from refrigerator and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place a cast-iron skillet over high heat, without any fat; when it is hot but not smoking, add burgers to dry pan.

  5. Cook for about four minutes on first side or until well seared and with a flipping spatula, turn onto second side and allow to cook for an additional five minutes, over medium heat.

  6. Serve immediately with fixins': Monterey jack, cheddar or queso fresco, lettuce, fresh tomato slice, pico de gallo or jarred salsa, sour cream, avocado. Good on a soft bun or by itself.
