Black Bean Veggie Burger

31 March 2012

I found this recipe months ago somewhere online and printed it out without including the link. So, make note that this is not my own recipe, but I did make a few additions to make it a bit spicier. I was quite impressed that J-Mo ate two of these “rabbit food” burgers.

Spicy Black Bean Veggie Burger

1/2 cup cooked rice (white or brown)
1 16 oz. can black beans
1/2 green pepper
1/2 yellow onion
3-4 sliced mushrooms
3 cloves garlic
2/3 cup shredded pepperjack
1 egg
1 1/2 tea Emeril’s Essence
1 1/2 tea cumin
1 1/2 tea garlic salt
1 tea green Tabasco
1/2 – 3/4 cup bread crumbs

Rinse and drain the beans, mash to a thick paste. Put onion, green pepper, mushrooms and garlic in food processor (I don’t have a food processor, so I used something that looks a lot like this). Add diced veggies to beans, mix. Put rice and cheese into food processor until chopped super tiny. Add to beans and mix. Whisk egg and spices, add to beans and stir together. Add breadcrumbs as necessary until mixture sticks together enough to form patties. As you make your patties, remember that they won’t shrink like a beef patty will, size accordingly. Cook on a George Foreman 6-8 minutes until slightly crispy and heated through. Makes about 6 patties.

    I am so making these. I am kind of on an anti beef kick lately, it makes me sick everytime I eat it. So this is perfect!
