These amazing black bean burgers are simple to make and delicious.  These, to date, are my favorites.  I love everything served on them: vegan cheese, red onion, fresh tomato slices, vegenaise, relish AND ketchup.  All on a toasted bun, of course.  Yep, the works!

                                       use a food processor to keep this recipe simple and quick



1 Tbsp. garlic
1/2 onion
2 cans black beans
2 Tbsp. cilantro
2 tsp. parsley
1 egg
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
1/2 cup bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste


1. Using a food processor, pulse together the garlic and onion.
2. Add ONE can of drained and rinsed black beans.  Pulse along with the cilantro, parsley, egg and red pepper.
3. Put this mixture into a bowl and stir in 1 can of drained and rinsed black beans, the bread crumbs, salt and pepper to taste.

4. Form patties, grill on medium to medium low heat using PAM.  Handle carefully.
Makes 6 good sized patties.

Use quality ingredients.  Instead of regular bread crumbs, I use seasoned Panko crumbs.  Goya are the best beans.

patties are a bit fragile, use two spatulas to turn
they turn a lovely brown color

I find it easier to cook these on my stovetop griddle rather than my outside grill.

Yields 6 good size burgers.
