Copycat Healthy Vegetables


  • 3 lb Cooked black beans; rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 c Diced onion
  • 1/2 c Diced red bell pepper
  • 1 ts Cayenne pepper
  • 1 Egg substitute
  • 1 c Bread crumbs
  • 2 tb Cilantro
  • 2 tb Olive oil
  • 8 Hamburger buns; mixed grain
  • Salsa
  • Guacomole


Put beans, onion, bell pepper, cayenne pepper, egg, bread crumbs and cilantro in food processor. Process, adding more bread crumbs as needed to make a mixture dry enough to form into patties. Shape into 8 patties. Patties may be made a day ahead and refrigerated to allow them to set well.
Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add 4 patties and fry 2 minutes per side, turning once. Add remaining tablespoon of olive oil and the remaining 4 patties and cook.
Place each patty in a hamburger roll and serve with salsa and guacamole, if desired.
