Corn & Black Bean Burgers
Contributed by Carla
2 tsp olive oil
1 C chopped onion
2 TBSP *spicy* bbq sauce
1 C frozen corn (thawed)
1/2 C cooked rice (may be increased to 1 cup) I personally use brown
rice for this dish
1 15 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 C toasted walnuts or pecans (ground to a coarse powder)
1 C plain bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste
heat oil in skillet over med. heat, add onion and cook until edges start
Add corn and bbq sauce. Cook stirring for a few minutes to blend
Remove from heat.
Place corn mixture, rice, and beans in a food processor and pulse
several times until blended but still chunky.
Transfer to large bowl and add nuts and bread crumbs. Mix with
spoon or hands until thoroughly combined. Season with salt and
pepper to taste.
Divide and shape into either 10 small burgers or 6 large ones (add
more bread crumbs if mix doesnt hold together well)
Prepare grill or preheat broiler
If using a grill, place patties on a vegetable grid. If broiling, place
patties on a pan lined with lightly oiled aluminum foil.
Grill over med/hot coals or broil 3-6 inches from heat until lightly
browned (4-6 minutes each side)
I personally top these with chunky salsa and sour cream with a leaf
of lettuce on a hamburger roll.
