How to Make Black bean burgers
- Take a can of black beans and mash them until about 1/3 are left whole. A lot of recipes call to drain them first but I like the flavor so I leave it,you do as you like.
- Next mix in all the chopped veggies. Now if you like a little variety add any kind you think might taste good, some times I add corn or peppers. Or even if you like a little heat some jalapeño. Like I said it all depends on your taste.
- Now add 1/2 your Italian bread crumbs, tomatoe paste, salt and pepper to taste and your liquid smoke. Mix it well. Now add the eggs and the rest of the crumbs.
- When the mixture is kinda like cookie dough, sticky but firm, you should be able to make your patties. If it looks too mushy add more crumbs. Note that these burgers don't shrink like regular hamburgers so what size you make them is up to you and more likely what you will end up with after they are cooked. Also you don't want to make them too thick or they may be mushy in the centers. I usually get 5- 6 burgers out of this mix when I make it.
- Now here is the fun part you can choose which way you want to cook them. They can be done on the grill, fried, or baked. I like baked because I can place them all out on the pan and they got done at the same time plus no grease from frying. I bake mine at 350 degrees F for about 20 mins. I then check and make sure they are cooked all through, firm not mushy. If they need it I put them in another 10 mins or until done.
- Now at this point your ready to make your burger, I put out everything I would for regular burgers and let my family put what they like on it. Me I like cheese, onions, tomatoe, lettuce, pickle and mustard on mine. Also sliced bread or burger bun doesn't matter they taste good either way.
