I've been planning to make these Black Bean Burgers that I saw on Asha's blog for quite a while now. Right now I'm battling a head-cold, so my brain is a bit fuzzy, but I did make these burgers today. I'm hoping to do a little more cooking later, but it seems that everytime I make the least effort, I need to go take a nap, so we'll see what happens. That saying "Feed a cold and starve a fever" is quite appropriate right now. I'm trying to keep my strength up.
These burgers are also my submission to The Well-Seasoned Cook's blog event - My Legume Love Affair. I adapted Asha's recipe, but I think that my burgers were a little dry. Next time I think I may add more oil or not put in as much cornmeal. They do have a nice flavor though. Here's the recipe.
Black Bean Burgers 15 oz. can of black beans 1 T garlic powder 1 T oregano 1 T basil 1 T cilantro 1/3 cup corn meal 1/2 large onion = 1 cup 1 T canola oil
Rinse beans and drain. Put beans in food processor to quickly grind up. Pour ground beans into medium bowl. Add onion, seasonings, and oil. Combine with fork. Form bean mixture into patties. Put skillet over medium heat and coat with oil. Cook patties until browned on both sides
