Musical Fruit Burger

Ahh I told you I love burgers...

Black Bean Burgers
Serves 4
Time: about 20min

3 rings of pickled jalapenos (optional)
1/2 cup chopped red onion
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup cilantro
15 ounce can of black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup panko flakes
2 large egg whites
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
sea salt
Romaine letture (to wrap)
For Him: Pepper-Jack (or whatever you like) cheese, Bun, "all the burger fixings"
Directions: Heat a pan with EVOO. Add the peppers, onion, and garlic - grill until golden brown. Remove from heat and let cool, throw in the food process or blender and blend away (similar to the GOOP). Add the cilantro and beans, "grind" or "pulse" a few times till the beans are broken down - but still chunky! 

Scrape the creamy and chunky mixture into a bowl and add the panko flakes. Mix well with hands and form 4 patties.
Heat the pan once more with a little more EVOO and place patties in - heat for about 6-7 minutes, they should be a bit crisp on each side!
