Even the Husband liked it!

I found this recipe in my Pampered Chef cook book. It was simple and very yummy. Even the husband liked it and he isn't really into meatless dishes.

Vegetarian Black Bean Burgers
Low Fat, Cholesterol, and Calorie

1 can (15oz) black beans,drained, rinsed, and mashed

1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/3 cup whole kernel corn
1/4 cup thick and chunky salsa
1 garlic clove, pressed
2 tbsp snipped fresh cilantro or parsley
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 cup unseasoned bread crumbs
2 egg whites, slightly beaten
4 whole wheat burger buns
Optional toppings: sour cream, salsa, lettuce, tomato, guacamole

1) Mash beans using nylon masher. Add chopped onion, corn, salsa, garlic, cilantro, salt and black pepper to beans; mix well. Add bread crumbs and egg whites to bean mixture, mix well. Form bean mixture into four round patties.

2) Heat 12 inch skillet over medium heat until hot. Lightly spray pan with nonstick cooking spray; cook patties 6 - 8 minutes or until lightly browned, turning once.

3. Place burgers on buns; serve with toppings if desired.

Like I said, these were really good. The only thing I question is the fact you don't cook them long and it has eggs in it. Hmmmmmm...
