I haven't tried any kind of veggie burgers on my daughter before so I didn't tell her that it was anything different from a regular burger. She ate it up...and I'm surely not telling her the secret now!
Ingredients for 6 - 8 burgers:
- 2 cans 16 ounce black eyed peas, drained and rinsed
- 1 onion, minced
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tbs. Mexican chili powder
- 1 tbs. cumin powder
- 1 cup quick rolling oats
- 2 eggs
In a bowl, mash beans with a fork completely. Add eggs, onion, garlic, chili powder & cumin powder, mix well. Add oats and combine. At this point I like to put this in the refrigerator to make shaping the patties easier. When ready, shape thick patties (thicker ones will hold together better) and fry them in a little oil till a nice brown develops on both sides. Enjoy!
