1 (15 oz) can no salt added black beans rinsed and drained
1 whole raw onion chopped
1 cup wheat bread crumbs
1 tbsp dried oregano
1tbsp dried basil
1 – 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil first cold pressed
2 – 4 cloves raw garlic chopped fine or ground with a molcajete
Optional: Hot sauce to taste
Optional: Jalapeno chopped fine or ground with a molcajete
Put black beans in a bowl and mash with a potato masher. Then stir in the rest of the ingredients. Form into patties. There should be enough for about six patties. This is really simple to make but you may have to add either more bread crumbs or wheat flour to keep the patties from falling apart as you fry bake or grill them. You can save the left over Black Bean mixture for more burgers later OR you can try my Black Bean Vegetarian Almost Vegan Enchiladas Recipe!
