How to Make Fat-free Black Bean Burgers

  • Put all the ingredients into a food processor, and process until they become grainy but ensure they are still textured.
  • Heat a cast-iron or non-stick skillet and spray lightly with oil.
  • Form two-inch discs with the burger batter and drop them into the skillet.
  • The batter will be a little runnier than you'd expect, but it will set and form into firm patties as the burger cooks.
  • Flip over when the underside is golden-brown, and cook on the other side about 3-4 minutes.
  • Serve hot with salsa, guacamole, and atop a delicious roll.
