Cooking Light NOVEMBER 2009

  • Yield: 4 patties (serving size: 1 patty)

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. Place bun in a food processor; process 4 times or until crumbs measure about 1 cup. Transfer to a bowl.

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.

3. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add patties to pan; reduce heat to medium, and cook 4 minutes or until bottom edges are browned. Carefully turn patties over; cook 3 minutes or until bottom edges are done.
