Paradise Island Bean Burgers
from Tosca Reno
1 Cup Black Beans (rinsed, drained and mashed)
1 Cup cooked brown rice(not instant)
1 garlic clove-pressed
1/2 med. size Sweet Potato -cooked
2 Tbsp. leeks (whites only-finely chopped)
1 tsp. Chili Powder
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. basil
1/4 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. sea salt
1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
4 Buns toasted (Ezekiel brand my favorite)
Mix all ingredients--- except the oil and buns.
Divide into 4's and make patties
Put pre-formed patties in the freezer for 10-15 minutes to
help them stay together while cooking.
Take out to cook in a skillet or griddle. Brush olive oil
on each patty and lay the olive oil side down first, while they are
cooking brush oil on the other side. Cook until golden brown and
just slightly crispy.
Add Fresh Grilled Pineapple as a Topper
