This has become a new staple in our house—so easy, delicious, and full of protein. Here is the recipe:
- 1/2 onion, diced
- 1 can black beans, well drained
- 1/2 cup flour
- 2 slices bread, crumbled
- 1/2 cup salsa
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp seasoned salt
- salt and pepper to taste
- oil for frying
Sautee the onions till soft, about 3-5 minutes.
In a large bowl, mash the beans until almost smooth. Add sauteed onions and the rest of the ingredients, except the oil, adding the flour a few tablespoons at a time to combine well. Mixture will be thick.
Form bean mixture into patties, approximately ½ inch thick and fry patties in a small amount of oil until slightly firm.
I make homemade rolls for buns (using my peasant bread recipe below), slather guacamole on top, and then serve with lettuce and tomato. Great served with salad and/or sweet potato fries.
