YIELD 4-6 Patties
1 (15oz.) can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 large egg
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
2 garlic cloves, minced
½ teaspoon black pepper
¼ cup green onions, finely chopped
2 Tablespoons fresh dill, minced
½ cup bread crumbs
2 Tablespoons whole wheat flour
2 oz. feta cheese, crumbled
1-2 Tablespoons oil
4-6 whole wheat buns
Lettuce or leafy greens
Red onions, sliced
Condiments (mustard, ketchup, etc.)
In a large bowl add in black beans, and mash with a fork or masher until half of the beans become a paste. Leave some beans whole for texture.
Add egg, soy sauce, salt, black pepper, paprika, garlic, green onion, dill, bread crumbs, and 1 Tablespoon of whole wheat flour. Fold in all ingredients until thoroughly combined (add another tablespoon of flour if mixture is too wet). Lastly, fold in feta cheese.
Measure out 1/4 cup of black bean mixture and form into 1/2 inch thick patties.
Heat oil in a skillet on medium heat. Place patties in the skillet and cook for 5-7 minutes on each side or until browned and cooked through.
Placed cooked burgers on a whole wheat bun with desired toppings. Enjoy!
