California Black Bean Burgers from the Betty Crocker site! 

California Black Bean Burgers

You Need:


1
can (15 ounces) black beans with cumin and chili spices, undrained
1
can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies, undrained
1
cup plain dry bread crumbs
1
egg, beaten
1/4
cup yellow cornmeal
2
tablespoons vegetable oil
5
hamburger buns, toasted
1
tablespoon mayonnaise or salad dressing
1 1/4
cups shredded lettuce
3
tablespoons thick-and-chunky salsa

To Make:

  • 1Place beans in food processor or blender. Cover and process until slightly mashed; remove from food processor. Mix beans, chilies, bread crumbs and egg. Shape mixture into 5 patties, each about 1/2 inch thick. Coat each patty with cornmeal.
  • 2Heat oil in 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Cook patties in oil 10 to 15 minutes, turning once, until crisp and thoroughly cooked on both sides.
  • 3Spread bottom halves of buns with mayonnaise. Top with lettuce, patties, salsa and tops of buns.

Tips:

Coating the patties with cornmeal gives them a delicious crispy coating. If the seasoned black beans aren't available, use unseasoned black beans and add one teaspoon chili powder.

Serves: 5

 I've never had a veggie burger but I'd try this one.  Sounds pretty good!

Sounds good - might be a good way to get my son to eat some veggies.
