How to make it

  • For the patties: In the bowl of a food processor, pulse bread to form breadcrumbs. Pour into a bowl and set aside.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive or canola oil in a large skillet set over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until soft. Add garlic, jalapeno, and spices. Saute for additional 2 minutes.
  • Scrape the mixture into the food processor. Add black beans, brown rice, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Pulse until the beans are chopped, but not pureed.
  • Scrape the black bean mixture into a large bowl. Add some of the breadcrumbs and the chopped cilantro. Stir the mixture until combined. If the mixture is too moist to form patties, add more breadcrumbs.
  • Divide the mixture into 8 equal portions and form into patties. Place the patties on a baking sheet lined with plastic wrap and cover with additional plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon canola oil in a large skillet (preferably not nonstick, so a good crust can form) set over medium heat. Add 4 patties and cook for 4 minutes per side. Repeat with 1 tablespoon oil and remaining 4 patties.
  • Serve burgers on toasted buns with above suggested toppings.

    Nice! I've been wanting to try to make these too, but always kind of chicken out that they won't "hold"...
