TEX MEX BLACK BEAN BURGERS (pareve)

| Not Listed

Ingredients

3 pounds cooked black beans—rinsed and drained
1/4 cup diced onion
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1 egg
1 cup bread crumbs
2 tablespoons cilantro
2 tablespoons olive oil
8 hamburger buns

Optional: salsa, guacamole, lettuce, tomato


Instructions

Put beans, onion, bell pepper, cayenne pepper, egg, bread crumbs and cilantro in food processor. Process, adding more bread crumbs as needed to make a mixture dry enough to form into patties. Shape into 8 patties. Patties may be made a day ahead and refrigerated to allow them to set well. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add 4 patties and fry 2 minutes per side, turning once. Add remaining tablespoon of olive oil and the remaining 4 patties and cook. Place each patty in a hamburger roll and serve with salsa and guacamole, if desired.
