BLACK BEAN BURGERS
2 cans (14.5 Each) Seasoned Black Beans (or use equivalent amount of Basic Black Bean recipe for better health and flavor!)
1 cup roughly ground, rolled oats (F-7, C-64, P-14)
1/4 cup Grated White Onion
1 whole Egg (F-5, C-0, P-6)
1/2 teaspoon Chili Powder
Salt And Pepper
Drain, but do not rinse, the black beans. Place them in a bowl and use a fork to mash them. Keep mashing until they're mostly broken up, but still have some whole beans visible. Add the ground oats, onion, egg, chili powder, salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Stir until everything is combined, then let the mixture sit for 5 minutes.
Heat a tablespoon or two of olive or coconut oil in a skillet over medium-low heat. Form the bean mixture into patties slightly larger than the buns you're using (the patties will not shrink when they cook.) Place the patties in the skillet and cook them about 5 minutes on the first side. Flip them to the other side and continue cooking them for another 5 minutes, or until the burgers are heated through. Top with lettuce and tomato, then serve hot!
