Black Bean Burger
The black bean patty is very easy to make and the burgers are super simple to assemble. I did not use lettuce in the burgers but as always you can use whatever salad or toppings you want to make your favourite burger.

Dish– Black Bean Burger
1 can black beans, drained and washed
1 white onion, chopped
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon dried chilli flakes
1/2 cup bread crumbs
Olive oil for shallow frying
4 burger buns
cheddar cheese slices [I used shredded cheddar]
sour cream or mayonnaise
In a mixing bowl add black beans. Slightly mash them using a potato masher. Add in chopped onions, basil, oregano, red chilly flakes.
Stir in and add salt and bread crumbs.
Make four round balls from the black bean mixture . Flatten the bean balls to form patty-like shape.
Heat olive oil in a pan or skillet. Shallow fry the patties in olive oil until golden and crispy from both sides.
Sprinkle the patty with shredded or slices of cheddar cheese. Cover the pan with the lid and let the cheese melt.
Assemble the burger
Slightly toast the burger buns. Apply sour cream and tomato ketchup on one side of the bun. Top it up with cheesy black bean patty,tomato and onion slices. Cover with the other slice of bun.
Serve and enjoy.
