Please keep in mind that this is my own personal recipe. Be courteous and link back to me if you decide to share it :-)
1 (16 oz) can black beans rinsed
2 cu cooked brown rice
1/2 cu (unseasoned) bread crumbs
1/2 cu chunky salsa
2 large eggs beaten
1/2 cu zucchini chopped
1/2 cu mushrooms chopped
4 scallions (green onion) chopped
4 garlic cloves minced
4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp sea salt (optional)
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
Rinse black beans then mash them in a bowl with a fork
Add cooked brown rice, bread crumbs, salsa, eggs, zucchini, mushrooms, scallion, garlic, salt, pepper, cumin, and chili powder to bowl and mix (mash) well.
Add half of extra virgin olive oil to skillet. Bring to medium heat. Form patties to place in skillet. Do not add patties until the skillet with oil is fully heated.
Allow patties to brown completely on each side, approximately 8-10 minutes. Be mindful when flipping the patties that they are still somewhat fragile.
You can serve these as desired, I like mine with lettuce, tomato, mustard and ketchup .My girls like shredded melted cheese on top! Enjoy!
