Black Bean Burgers

Servings 4

2 cans low sodium black beans
1/4 cup grated white onion
1 egg
1/2 cup grated carrots
1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. siracha sauce
1/4 tsp. salt and pepper
1 tbs. olive oil for cooking burgers

Mash black beans with a fork in a medium bowl.
Next, add breadcrumbs, seasonings, sriracha, onion, carrots, breadcrumbs, and egg and mix well.
Form mixture into 4 patties.
Heat olive oil in skillet on medium high heat and cook burgers one by one for about 5 minutes per side or until cooked through.

*Serve on top a bed of greens rather than a hamburger bun. These burgers are great to make ahead of time and freeze for later use.
