Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
4 slices Stale bread; or toasted bread
2 teaspoons Canola oil; *
1½ cup Chopped onion
2 Cloves garlic; minced
1 tablespoon Fresh ginger; minced
½ teaspoon Allspice
½ teaspoon Ground nutmeg
1½ cup Cooked black beans; (15 oz can)

* 2 tbsp was the original (which results in 19% CFF). Use one tsp to saute the veggies and spices. And use another only if you do not have a good non-stick skillet to brown the patties.

Make bread crumbs from the stale or toasted bread.

Saute the onions in 1 tsp oil for 5 minutes, until soft. Add the garlic, ginger, allspice, andnutmeg and saute for 2 more minutes. Put this mixture into a food processor.

Add the beans, rice, and chile pepper. Pulse to chop the ingredients. (Do not puree them.) Mix with the bread crumbs, and add salt and pepper. If the mixture is too wet, add more bread crumbs.

Cook the burgers in hot pan about 4 minutes per side until a dark crust forms. Serve on rolls with condiments of choice. Chutney is nice with these.
