Black Eyed Burgers

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!

~ happy cook...i remember being the same way as a kid too, kids are funny.

~ padma, thanks :)

~ namratha, the black bean burgers at chilis are very good...i want to try it with black beans next :)

~ andy...for me it really helped to refrigerate the mixture first and then make the patties somewhat thick, if they are too thin they don't hold together well.

~ mona, thank you :) hope you both enjoy them!!!
