Ingredients

  • 1 (2-ounce) hamburger bun, torn into pieces
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 teaspoons chopped garlic
  • 1 (15.25-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime rind
  • 3/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 large egg white, lightly beaten

Preparation

  1. 1. Place bun in a food processor; process 4 times or until crumbs measure about 1 cup. Transfer to a bowl.
  2. 2. Combine 1 tablespoon oil, garlic, and beans in processor; pulse 8 times or until beans make a thick paste. Scrape bean mixture into bowl with breadcrumbs. Stir in rind and remaining ingredients. With moistened hands, divide bean mixture into 4 equal portions (about 1/3 cup mixture per portion), shaping each into a 3-inch patty.
