Black Bean and Avocado Burgers
2 cans of black beans, well drained
2 avocado, overripe
1/4 cup potato flakes (or GF oatmeal flour)
2 plum tomatoes
1 lime, de-seeded and peeled
1/8 cup cilantro leaves
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
In a food processor, or with a potato masher, mash all ingredients. The burger mixture should feel like traditional burger, not too dry not too wet -- if it sticking to your hands add a bit more potato flakes. If too dry add some salsa or another tomato. Mixture can be kept in the fridge for a few days.
Roll into balls about the size of baseballs and then flatten.
Follow one of the following two options:
Dredge them in more potato flakes. Fry in a bit olive oil until browned, about 5-8 minutes on each side.
Place on parchment paper on a cookie sheet and bake for 40 minutes. These burgers can be frozen for up to a month -- must be thawed in fridge over night.
Serve on a bun as a traditional burger or on its own with salsa, sour cream, cheese, mustard or more avocado!
