Black beans and Baby Bella Mushroom burgers
"Veggie burger instead of meat!"Serves 2 | Prep Time 15 minutes | Cook Time 10 minutes
1 cup baby bella mushrooms, chopped
1 cup cooked black beans, rinsed and divided
1 Large eggs, beaten
1/2 cup plus 2 Tbl Panko or Gluten Free Panko
2 Tbl minced garlic
3/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan *Look for vegetarian or vegan Parmesan cheese if you do not eat animal products
In a large bowl add 1 cup of black beans and mash with a masher (chunks are OK).
Next, add in the mushrooms and garlic
Mix just until coated.
Add in the egg, cheese and bread crumbs and mix gently with a large spoon until the mixture is combined.
Set aside while you place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add in 2 Tbl of oil.
Once the oil starts to shimmer (about a minute or two), using dampened hands (the mixture will stick to you if you don’t), scoop a 1/2 cup of mixture into the palm of your hand and gently shape into a burger all the while pressing together. The mixture should hold a burger shape. If it doesn’t add just a Tbl more of bread crumbs.
Place in the oil and cook for 3-5 minutes per side or until golden brown and a crust has formed on each side.
