Black Bean Burgers: Part 4

Black Bean Burgers

What you will need:

1 can Black
Bread Crumbs
2-3 Carrots
2-3 Celery Stalks
An Onion
One Egg
Salt and Pepper
Cayenne Pepper

Preheat oven to 350F. Clean the carrots and celery and peel carrots. Chop both into medium
pieces. Chop onion, we used about a quarter cup, but you can use more or less depending on your onion preferences. In a Cuisineart or blender add the black beans, drained and rinsed, the carrots, celery, onion, egg, and spices. Mix for about 45 seconds. Slowly add breadcrumbs until the mixture is firm, but not dry or too runny. Make patties about 1/4" - 1/2" thick and place on a foiled 1/2 sheet pan (cookie sheet). Cook in the oven for 10-12 minutes on each side. Be careful not to burn them. If they are still too soft they can go longer than the 12 min depending
on your oven.

Suggested Toppings
Provolone or Cheddar Cheese
Green Chili
Dijon Mustard
or anything else you would eat on any other kind of burger
