Ingredients

  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 3 Tablespoons chunky salsa, plus more for garnish
  • 2 Teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 Cup cooked rice
  • salt, to taste
  • 3/4 Cups cornmeal

Directions

In a medium mixing bowl, mash black beans until they're a thick paste, leaving some beans still whole so the mix has texture. Add all other ingredients and stir until well mixed. If your mixture is too wet, add a little more cornmeal, or if it's a little too dry, add a little more salsa. Form the mix into 1/2-inch-thick patties and place on a plate. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours.

To cook, grease a small pan and place on low-medium heat. Cook until heated through and brown on the outside, about 4 minutes on each side. Serve on a bun with salsa and greens.

Black Bean Shopping Tip

Legumes are high in a number of nutrients, especially protein and fiber – filling you up with relatively few calories.

Black Bean Cooking Tip

Beans are done when they can be easily mashed with a fork – make sure to test a few in case they have not cooked evenly.
