(too bad I didn't have good lighting for the shot. that's the most gourmet my food has looked in a long time.)
|Creole Black Bean Burgers|
3 cups (or 2 cans) black beans, rinsed and drained
2-3 cloves of garlic
2 tsp creole seasoning (we prefer Zatarans)
oatmeal or cooked rice for consistency
Place onions and garlic in food processor and chop till fine. Add creole and beans and pulse until roughly mixed. Dump ingredients into a big bowl and stir in oats or rice until mixture is only a little sticky. (Sticky is good because it means moist burgers, but bad if it's too sticky to work with. Walk that line, people.)
Grease a large cookie sheet and shape mixture into approximately 6 burger sized patties, and bake for 30 minutes, flipping half way through.
Serve with lettuce, tomato, and GUACAMOLE! Trust me when I say that the guacamole just makes these burgers heavenly (unless you are diametrically opposed to guacamole to begin with).
Let me know what you think if you try them. So what did you have for dinner tonight?
