Black Bean Burger

This is a super quick and really yummy recipe for a meat free burger!

1 cups bread crumbs (or you can use one hamburger bun torn into pieces and chopped in a food processor)
3 Tbsp olive oil, divided
2 tsp chopped garlic
1--15 oz can of black beans
1 tsp lime juice
3/4 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp fresh oregano
1/4 tsp salt
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 large egg white, lightly beaten
Put bread crumbs in a bowl. Combine 1 Tbsp oil, garlic and beans into a food processor and pulse until beans make a thick paste. Scape bean paste into bowl with bread crumbs. Stir in remaining ingredients. Use hands to divide mixture into 4 equal portions (about 1/3 c.) and then shape into 3" patties.
Heat remaining 2 Tbsp of oil on a non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Add patties and reduce heat to medium. Cook for minutes on each side or until patties are browned.

Serve on a bun with ketchup, lettuce, avocado, Monterey jack cheese, purple onion, and tomato. You can spike your ketchup with hot sauce for a little more punch!
