black bean burgers

vegetarian low-fat burgers, adapted from recipezaar- super scrumptious!

MAKES ~4 medium burgers

1 1/2-2 tablespoons green onions (or sauteed chopped onions)
1 can black beans, well drained
1 tablespoon gluten-free flour
1 slice gluten-free bread, very well crumbled
1-1 1/2 teaspoon crushed garlic (or 1/2 tsp Adobo or garlic powder)
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
1/8 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp smoked paprika (or regular paprika)
salt and pepper
oil (for frying)

1) In a large bowl, mash the beans well.
2) Add remaining ingredients, except the oil, and mash well.
3) Form bean mixture into flat patties.
4) Add oil to frying pan (I use ~1-2 TB) and cook patties 5-15 minutes per side. Once you notice a nice darker crust forming- then it's time to flip the burgers!

- feel free to substitute your own seasonings!
- I like to top mine with a little sea salt and sour cream, so don't forget to add your own yummy toppings!
