Spicy Black Bean Burgers (4
1/4 c flour
1/4 c coarse cornmeal
olive oil or canola oil for sauteing
1 yellow onion, diced
1 small hot or jalapeno pepper, minced (seeds removed, optional)
1 red bell pepper, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 t dried oregano
2 c cooked or canned black beans drained and rinsed
1/2 c corn kernals
1/2 c bread crumbs
2 t chili powder
1/4 t cumin
1/2 t salt
2 T minced fresh parsley
On a shallow plate, combine four and cornmeal and set aside for coating later.
In a saucepan over medium heat, heat oil and saute onion, hot and bell peppers, garlic, and oregano, until onion become translucent. Set aside.
Shape into patties. Coat each with flour mixture.
8 medium creamy yellow potatoes, quartered (peeling optional)
1/2 c mayonnaise
4 scallions, finely chopped (I used chives since I didn’t have any green onions)
2 small carrots, peeled and finely chopped
2 T finely chopped fresh parsley
2 celery stalks, finely chopped
1 small red onion, finely chopped
1 T lemon juice
1 t salt
black pepper, to taste
Steam or boil potatoes until tender but not too soft. Drain, cool, and cut into cubes.
In a large bowl, combine cooled potatoes with mayonnaise, scallions, carrots, parsley, celery, onion, lemon juice, and salt. Add more mayonnaise, if necessary. Season with pepper, and mix well.
