Plantains pair well with this Caribbean-inspired burger. Cut two peeled, underripe plantains in half lengthwise, and cut each half crosswise into two pieces. Coat with cooking spray; sauté for four minutes on each side or until golden and slightly soft. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt.

  • Place the onion mixture, rice, 1/3 cup breadcrumbs, and black beans in a food processor; pulse 15 times or until finely chopped. Divide bean mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each portion into a 1-inch-thick patty. Place remaining 1/3 cup breadcrumbs in a shallow dish, and dredge patties in breadcrumbs. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add patties to the pan, and cook for 3 minutes on each side or until browned and crisp.

  • Spread 1 tablespoon mayonnaise on top half of each bun. Place patties on bottom halves of buns; top each serving with 1 lettuce leaf, 1 onion slice, and top half of bun.
