black bean burger recipe

You may have noticed that we eat a lot of beans around here.  My favorites are black and pinto, I'm not entirely sure why, but because of this I am constantly trying to find ways to recreate them.  We do get bored of chili and black bean burritos.  I saw a recipe in my whole food kitchen workshop on black bean burgers, and while they looked great, I thought that I could do something different and easier.  Remember, I have an aversion to recipes :-)

Black Bean Burgers

3 cups cooked black beans
1 1/2 cups rolled oats pulsed in blender or food processor to flour
1 onion finely chopped
2 eggs
1 tsp salt
2 tsp garlic powder (or chop some fresh garlic and add it)
1 T chili powder
extra virgin olive oil to drizzle

Mash black beans, oat flour, onion, and seasonings together with a potato masher until combined.  Add 2 beaten eggs and mix together.  Form into patties and then drizzle with olive oil.  Heat frying pan to medium-high heat and cook.  Make sure they are cooked in the middle because of the egg!

These were topped with my homemade guacamole and had chipotle mayonnaise for dipping.

Chipotle mayonnaise

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp ground chipotle pepper - or - 1 chipotle in adobo finely chopped

This is quite spicy so you can change the seasoning amount to taste!
