Veggie Burger
HellaWella

While all veggie burgers are great alternatives as far as cows are concerned, some pack tons of fat and calories. These barbecue-ready picks, however, boast the protein of beef burgers without the fat, plus a boost of fiber, if you don't have the time to make your own.

INGREDIENTS

  • One 15.5 ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup green bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup white onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a pan. Add the pepper, onions, corn, and garlic, and stir for a few seconds; then cover. Let steam for about 5 minutes, or until softened.

In a large bowl, mash black beans with a fork or potato masher until pasty but chunky.

Stir the diced pepper, onions, and garlic into black bean mixture. Squeeze out excess moisture.

Whisk together egg, cayenne, cumin, and cilantro in a separate bowl. Stir egg mixture into the black beans and vegetables. Add breadcrumbs and stir.

Form mixture into 4 patties and place on a prepared baking sheet.

Bake burgers for about 10 minutes on each side.

Enjoy on a whole-wheat bun topped with cheese, salsa, or avocado.
