Black Bean Burgers

blackbeanburger 0213-4 cups cooked black beans (2 15-oz cans)

8 oz aseptically packaged silken tofu

2 teaspoons salt

½ teaspoon garlic powder

1-2 Tablespoons dry chopped onion

3 Tablespoons dried parsley

4 teaspoons dried dill weed

¼ cup cider vinegar

4 teaspoons dry mustard

4 cups dry bread crumbs, cooked rice or quick oats


Place everything except last ingredient in food processor and puree. Transfer into a bowl and mix in your grain ingredient. Mixture will still be somewhat sticky and soft, but should form easily. Add more grain if necessary. Form into patties about 4” in diameter and ½” thick, using about ½ cup of mixture each. To cook, place in a greased skillet and cook 10 minutes per side, or place on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 400F, ten minutes per side. Makes 12-16 burgers. These freeze well for a quick meal later!

(Note: The tofu is used as a binder. If you cannot eat soy you can use 4 eggs or an equivalent amount of powdered egg to be all shelf-stable.)
