1 (1-oz.) slice whole-grain bread, toasted and torn into pieces
1/4 cup grated onion
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon grated lime rind
1 (15-oz.) can unsalted black beans, rinsed and drained
1/3 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
1 large egg, lightly beaten
4 teaspoons olive oil
Place bread in a food processor; pulse 5 times. Transfer to a bowl.
Combine onion, garlic, juice, cumin, salt, rind, and beans in processor; pulse 4 to 5 times.
Add bean mixture, walnuts, hot sauce, and egg to crumbs; stir well.
Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions.
Shape each portion into a 3/4-inch-thick patty.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
Add patties to pan; reduce heat to medium, and cook 4 minutes on each side or until browned.
These burgers also work with any other canned bean variety, just mix and match the spices based on bean chosen. Za’atar and oregano would pair well with garbanzo beans, while a creole spice mix complements red beans.
