INGREDIENTS

  • Hamburger Bun (#453)
  • 16 oz can black beans, drained & dried
  • ½ red bell pepper, roughly diced
  • ½ onion, roughly diced
  • 3 fresh garlic cloves
  • ½ cup corn kernels
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ cup bread crumbs
  • Oil (vegetable or olive)
  • ½ fresh avocado
  • Lettuce, tomato

PREPARATION

  • In a food processor, add the bell pepper, onion, garlic, corn and cilantro. Pulse to finely chop. Transfer to a sauté pan and cook in 1 tbsp of oil until onions are translucent (medium heat, about 3 to 4 minutes) and set aside. Add black beans, egg, spices, Worcestershire sauce and breadcrumbs to the food processor. Pulse to combine, but leave little chunks of the beans.

  • In a medium bowl, add bean mixture and cooked vegetable mixture and fold in with spatula. Form into about 4 equal size patties and coat with some of the breadcrumbs after formed. In a medium size pan, sauté the patties in the oil until golden brown on each side. Place in an oven at 350°F for about 7 or 8 minutes to heat thoroughly. Let rest for a minute. Assemble with slices of avocado (make sure to sprinkle with lemon juice) lettuce and tomato for final sandwich.
