Black Bean & Brown Rice burgers

Easy, cheap, fast, yummy!

Another pinterest find I found and tried- it’s a winner!

All you need is brown rice, black beans, onion, olive oil, & zucchini.

I also added some garlic, pepper, chili powder

Put on a some spinach & squeezed some lime when it was done.

Cook about 1/2 cup of brown rice according to directions. Set aside and let cool off

Dice up an onion and half of a zucchini, put in pot until soft/ brown

Then add 2 cups of black beans 5-7 minutes

Take 2/3 of the mixture and put it in a blender ( this helps make the patties stay together)

Put back in bowl, mix in rice and allow to cool

Put oil in pan, form patties and cook  about 5 minutes on each side

Place on a bed of spinach or lettuce and enjoy.

I had an avocado to put on top but was so hungry I forgot about it.

Grilling pan from Farberware ( & Vocalpoint) was so easy to clean up, one wipe and it was clean. I was also expecting some sticking because of the blended beans but nothing.You will read more about me using this grilling pan 🙂
