Black Bean Burgers
2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1 whole egg beaten
Kosher salt and pepper to taste
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 cup leftover rice, quinoa or Panko bread crumbs
2 tsp cumin
1 1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup crumbled feta
Fresh sliced red onion
Tomatoes sliced thin
Tortillas or Pita bread that has been grilled
Olive oil or nonstick cooking spray
Seed and roughly chop jalapeno and add it and the garlic cloves to a food processor and finely dice.
Add one can of beans to the jalapeno garlic mixture and pulse to combine. Add cumin and salt/pepper and pulse until mixture resembles chunky black bean dip. Put into a large bowl adding the remaining ingredients. Stir well until everything is combined.
Form the black bean burgers into the size patties you prefer. Preheat the grill on Med-high heat. Lightly spray or olive oil the aluminum foil to keep the burger from sticking.
Grill the black bean burgers for 3-4 minutes on each side being careful to not to flip to many times. Grill until golden brown on each side. Multiple flipping could result in the burger breaking apart.
Serve on grilled pita bread with sliced red onion, fresh lettuce, tomato, and Tzatziki sauce.
