Grilled Black Bean Burgers
This delicious meatless recipe is from my mom. It's filling, full of good nutrition, and always satisfies the men in the group too. Just add a bun and any normal hamburger toppings! Enjoy!
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 T olive oil
1 medium carrot, shredded
1-2 t chili powder (depending on taste)
1 t cumin
1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed (or you can just use 2 cans of black)
1 1/2 c quick cooking oats
2 T dijon mustard
2 T soy sauce
1 T ketchup
1/4 t pepper
In a large skillet coated with cooking spray, saute onion and garlic in oil for 2 minutes. Stir in carrot, chili powder, and cumin; cook 2 minutes longer or until carrot is tender. Remove from heat. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mash beans. Stir in oats. Add mustard, soy sauce, ketchup, pepper, and carrot mixture. Mix well and shape into 3 1/2" patties. It will make about 8. Fry in a non-stick frying pan coated w/ cooking spray, or bake on a stone until heated through and nicely browned (about 30 minutes on 350).
Super yummy w/ salsa on top! These also freeze really well.
