IMG_0034.JPG

Ingredients:
-1 can of black beans (16oz)
- ½ onion
- ½ bell pepper
- 1tsp cumin
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 cup of bread crumbs
- 1 egg
- 2 garlic cloves (minced)

Directions:

  1. Drain the black beans and put the beans in a small mixing bowl.
  2. Mash black beans until thick and pasty.
  3. In a food processor, chop bell pepper, onion, garlic, cumin, garlic, chili powder, and beans.
  4. In a small bowl, beat the egg and add to the mixture in the food processor.
  5. Remove the mixture from the food processor and add it in a mixing bowl. Add the breadcrumbs and this should create 4-6 patties, depending on the size.
  6. In the summer I love to put my patties on the grill, and grill about 10 minutes on each side. 
  7. If you do not want to grill, then place the patties on a baking sheet and place in the oven (400 degrees) for about 10 minutes.

I like to add a few sides with the dish. For example, sweet potato fries and corn are a nice added touch.

Servings: 6-8

Bon Appetit!
