Black Bean Burger- Phase 1 (vegan)

This burger is from my Ultimate Combo cookbook. 

For a vegan version- blend or whisk  1/2 cup aquafaba (juice from a can of chickpeas or white beans) until almost stiff peaks. Add 1/4 cup to recipe in place of every egg white.

Black Bean Burger
Phase 1
Serves 4

2 cups cup black beans, cooked
1 egg white
1/2 cup cooked quinoa
2-3 T shredded purple onion
¼ cup shredded carrot
1-2 minced garlic clove
1/2 tsp each salt & pepper
Pinch of cayenne

Sautee the onion, carrot and garlic in non stick pan, over medium heat, until the onion is starting to get soft. Put the black beans in a large bowl and mash with a fork. Add egg white, cooked onion and garlic, quinoa, salt and pepper, cayenne. Mix with hands and form into 4 patties. (These will not shrink). Grill patties or cook in non stick pan, 3-4 minutes per side. Or bake on a rack set in a sheet pan, in oven (375 degrees) for 15-20 minutes. 

Serve on bun with tomato, lettuce, onion.
