Black bean burgers are a great and healthy alternative to a traditional burger. The cilantro and garlic adds such an amazing flavor to this burger. I really like the spicy sauce. Roasted sweet potatoes are a great side to serve with this burger.
1 (15 oz) can low-sodium (or unsalted) black beans, rined and drained
1/8 - 1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 TBS minced garlic
2 tsp low-sodium soy sauce
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1 large egg, lightly beaten
4 whole-grain hamburger buns
1/4 cup canola mayonnaise
1 tsp Sriracha (hot chile sauce)
1 tsp fresh lime juice
2 cups baby arugula (or spring green mix)
Preheat oven to 425.
Place beans in a large bowl; lightly mash. Stir in onion and the next 7 ingredients. Divide mixture into 4 portions; shape each into a 1/2-inch thick patty.
Arrange patties on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 425 for 8 minutes; turn after 6 minutes. Add bun halves to pan; bake for 3 minutes.
Combine mayonnaise, Sriracha, and lime juice; spread over bottom halves of buns. Top each serving with 1 patty, 1/2 cup arugula, and top halves of buns.
