Recipe Post!

If you know me, then you know I LOVE to cook.  Tonight we made Black Bean & Corn Burgers.  They were delish!  I hope you enjoy!

Black Bean & Corn Burgers with Garlic-Adobo Aioli.

1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
3/4 cup corn, thawed if frozen
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
3/4 cup oats
4 tbsp whole wheat flour
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 tbsp chopped chipotle chile in adobo
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 avocado, sliced
spinach, for topping
4 whole-wheat hamburger buns, split

Salt & Pepper to taste

Adobo Aioli
1 Cup mayo
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp Adobo sauce (from the can)
(Mix all ingredients well.  This is SPICY so if you don't want it so hot, reduce the amount of adobo sauce).


In a food processor, blend the beans, cilantro and corn until blended, but still slightly chunky.

Next, combine the remaining ingredients, except for the avocado, spinach and buns (obviously!).  Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Form into 4 patties (or more if you want smaller patties - these were pretty big).  Pop into freezer for minimum 2 hours.

Grill on the barbeque on high for 10 minutes, flip and grill another 10 minutes.  Top with aioli, avocado slices and spinach.  Throw in a side salad and you are ready to rock!
