Rachel's Bean Burgers!!!

During our many hours in the car today we were trying to think of recipes that are easy, quick, healthy and delicious...we both love black beans and make many dishes with them, so we wanted to use them more!! When I first found Rachel's blog I read the whole thing (yup) and have used quite a few of her delicious recipes before. I had forgotten about the black bean burgers until today and when I got home looked them up for dinner.
We didn't have all the ingredients and were too tired to go to the I substituted a few things here and there.
Here's my version (really not that different) :: They turned out AMAZING!!

Ingredients ::
2 cans black beans
1/2 red onion
2 eggs
1 cup bread crumbs

Directions ::Chop up onion and sautee in a frye pan with coconut oil until onions are golden. Combine in large mixing bowl (or food processor) black beans, sauteed onions, cilantro, eggs, bread crumbs and tapatillo and mix until well combined (not smooth). I used my hands to make patties and put them directly into the frye pan (again with a small amount of coconut oil) cooking them about 5 minutes or so on either side. I toasted our buns, put mayonnaise and mustard on (we were out of ketchup-bummer), butter lettuce and a slice of cheese (your preference). Ready to eat!! Yummmm.
Thanks Rachel : )

:: peace and love ::
