Lightbulb Black Bean Burgers


Here are 3 varieties to get you started.


Black Bean & Rice Burgers

8 Servings

1 cup dried black beans
1/2 cup uncooked long-grain white rice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
pinch cayenne
3/4 cup fine dry bread crumbs

Sort and rinse the beans, then soak them for several hours or overnight. Drain and rinse well, then place in a saucepan with 4 cups of water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium and simmer for about 1.5 hours, until very soft.

Drain beans, reserving the cooking liquid. Return the drained beans to the pot. Add water, if necessary, to the bean cooking liquid to measure 2 cups. Add it to the pot along with the rice. Stir in the salt, chili powder, cumin, cayenne and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring frequently during the last 5 minutes. If rice is
not yet tender, add another 1/4 cup water and continue cooking and stirring until it is absorbed. Mixture should be very soft and well combined. Remove the pan from the heat.

When the bean mixture is cooled enough to handle, form into 8 patties. Coat with the bread crumbs. Spray a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium. Cook the patties about 4 minutes per side, until golden brown.
