I have been trying to find other food to help trim my calories. Without going full vegetarian I wants to mix in the veggie meals during the week. Been trying different vegetarian burgers in the restaurants. The best one I have found is a UNO. however a wonder waht the calorie counts is. Even with Vegetarian dish they can have a high calorie count.
While looking through a new cookbook, I saw a recipe for a Burger made with Black beans. Of course I did not have all the ingredients it called. So out came my thought process, how can I make a black bean burger with what is in my Cupboard.
Black Bean Burgers.
1 can Black beans
2 oz jalapeno peppers
1/2 cup Panko Crumb
2 tablespoon Olive oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon Chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground oregano
1 large egg white.
Drain and rinse black beans. set aside 1/2 cup and mash with fork the remaining.
Add the the next seven ingredients and mix with fork.
Beat egg white and add to the bean mixture.
divide into four patties and cook on medium high heat. 3 minutes per side.
Serve with guacamole, or top with MontereyJack cheese
