Black Bean Mushroom Burger

Ingredients:
15.5 ounces black beans
1 cup mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup rolled oats
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 onion, diced
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika

Directions:
In a pan saute the garlic and onion until soft and translucent. Add mushrooms and stir for about 5 minutes until hot and they have turned a brown color. In a food processor add the black beans, rolled oats, spices and onion/garlic/mushroom mixture. Pulse a few times for good consistency. Divide mixture and flatten into patties.

Broil in the oven for 8 minutes per side. Serve on a whole wheat bun with lettuce, tomato with homemade ketchup and baked home fries.

Notes: On the heals of Jeff Novick’s Fast Food: Vol 2 – Burgers and Fries, I decided to try my hand at making a simple burger. I was able to find a great bargain on mushrooms and had black beans ready to eat. This added a bit of a hearty flavor to a basic bean burger, which had a nice dark color.
