How to Prepare Black Bean Burgers
To make your very own black bean burgers, you will first need to start by placing the bread into a food processor. Once in, pulse the bread five times and then put this into a bowl. Next, collect the onion, garlic, juice, cumin, salt, rind, and beans and place them into the food processor and pulse around five times. After that, continue by adding the remaining ingredients, which you should then stir into the mixture.
Once the mixture is blended well together, begin to shape the burgers. The thickness of the burgers depends on your preference, but we recommend dividing the mixture into four sections, then shape them. Let them sit for about an hour. Be careful when you place in pan and flip gently. Cook the burgers for around four minutes on each side then enjoy!
