I am always trying to come up with new recipes.
New recipes that are not only healthy but recipes that taste really good. Because lets be honest, if you don’t like the food, you’re not going to eat it.
About a month ago my husband bought some frozen black bean burgers from the grocery store that were REALLY good, but really expensive. So I thought, why can’t I make them myself? We always have the ingredients on hand, so it was easy to get them all together.
And the burgers turned out FANTASTIC!!!
They are simple, healthy and are very filling.
Here’s how to make them…
2 cups cooked black beans
1/2 onion, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
2 tsp minced garlic
1 cup corn
1 small can of chopped jalapenos
2 tbsp taco seasoning
1/2-1 cup of bread crumbs (add more if mixture seems too wet)
Saute onion, peppers and garlic until veggies are tender. While that is cooking, pulse black beans in food processor until most of it is “mashed”, leaving some beans whole or partially whole. Once peppers and onions are tender, add corn, jalapenos and taco seasoning. Cook for 2-3 min.
Transfer bean mash and veggies into a big mixing bowl and add breadcrumbs. Mix (I like to use my hands as it is the easiest) and shape into 4 oz burgers.
Brown burgers in pan for 2-3 min/side then place on cookie sheet.
Bake burgers for 12-15 min at 375 degrees.
