Black Bean Burgers

Not only are these veggie burgers moist and flavorful, but they're very easy to freeze. Don't be surprised when you end up preferring them over meat burgers.


6 servings


1 cup frozen mixed vegetables, thawed
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained, divided
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons cold water
1 cup mashed potato flakes
1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
3 tablespoons whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons nonfat dry milk powder
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 teaspoons canola oil
6 kaiser rolls, split
2 cups shredded lettuce
3/4 cup salsa


In a large microwave-safe bowl, combine the mixed vegetables, onion and red pepper. Cover and microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes.

Coarsely mash 3/4 cup black beans. In a bowl, combine the cornstarch and water until smooth; stir in the mashed beans, potato flakes, oats, flour, milk powder, egg, salt and pepper. Stir in vegetable mixture and remaining black beans. Shape into six 5/8-inch-thick patties.

In a large nonstick skillet, cook patties in oil for 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Serve on rolls with lettuce and salsa.

Preparation/Total Time: 25 minutes
