Cilantro-Lime Black Bean Burgers

Ingredients

1 small onion chopped
29 ounces can of black beans, rinsed and drained
zest and juice of one lime
3 tablespoons (small bunch) of cilantro leaves
1 egg
1/2 cup of breadcrumbs (less to taste)
Sliced plum tomatoes
dollops of sour cream

Preparation

1
In your food processor, add your onion and garlic. Pulse until minced. Then add black beans, lime zest, lime juice and cilantro. Pulse until smooth.
2
In a bowl, add the bean mixture, one egg and breadcrumbs. Mix until the egg and breadcrumbs are incorporated.
3
With wet hands, form the black bean burger mix into patties. You can get 6-8 out of this mixture, I happened to make 7. Heat up your grill pan and add a drizzle of light olive oil. When the pan is hot, grill each patty until its crispy on both sides. These are delicate burgers so be careful when flipping.
4
Toast your Whole Wheat Buns. Add your burger to the bun and top it off with a couple of slices of tomato, a dollop of sour cream and some cilantro. Enjoy!
