Makes 4 large burgers or 6 small

Ingredients

1/2 small onion, chopped

1-2 cloves garlic

1/4 cup roughly chopped cilantro

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp chipotle powder or cayenne (optional)

1/3 cup pepitas

2 tsp vegetable oil

1 can black beans, rinsed and drained

1/2 cup cooked brown rice

Salt and pepper to taste

Flour for dusting

Oil or cooking spray

Method

Add onion, garlic, cilantro, cumin, chili powder, chipotle powder, and pepitas to a food processor.  Pulse several times until it all comes together.  Add remaining ingredients and pulse again until it comes together.  Do not over blend or the mixture can become too wet.  Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate 20-30 minutes to chill.  Once chilled it will be easier to handle.

Shape into 4 patties.  Lightly dust both sides of each patty in flour.

Heat lightly oiled skillet over medium heat.  Once hot, add burgers and cook a few minutes on each side until browned and heat through.
