1/4 cup onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
15 oz can low sodium black beans, rinsed & drained
1 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup rolled oats
4 Tablespoons ketchup
2 tsp. cumin
2 tsp. oregano
1-4 tablespoons water (optional)
non-stick cooking spray
Mash the beans to a paste and the remaining ingredients. Use the water if the mixture is too dry and won't hold together when you try to form the patties. Form 4-6 patties.
Spray skillet with non stick spray and brown burgers over medium heat until slightly browned on both sides (about 3 min. per side).
Serve on bed of lettuce, lettuce wrap or whole wheat buns.
NOTE: You can also make burger with cooked onions and garlic. Just use water to saute the onions first and once cooked add the garlic and saute for about 1 minute.
