Moore’s Original Black Bean Veggie Burger
½ cup onions, chopped
¼ cup green bell pepper, chopped
¼ cup cilantro, chopped
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 ½ cup breadcrumbs or cooked quinoa (or more if needed)
3 tbsp. Moore’s Original Marinade
2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. minced garlic
2 tbsp. oil or butter (“Mom” prefers organic)
Desired toppings such as cheese, ketchup, mayo, mustard, lettuce, tomato, etc.
1. Add onions, bell peppers, cilantro, black beans, marinade, cumin, salt and garlic and pulse in a food processor. Add breadcrumbs and pulse a few more times. Mixture should be thick enough not to fall off of a spoon. Add more breadcrumbs until thick, if needed.
2. Form mixture into golf ball size pieces and press to form patties.
3. Heat 2 tbsp. oil over medium high heat. Cook each patty for 2-3 on each side until desired doneness.
4. Serve on hamburger buns with desired toppings.
