Southwest Bean Burgers from Powerfoods Cookbook

Hey loves!! I've been promising recipes for a while and not posting them. Here is one of the ones I tried recently. I will post another blog with a different recipe.

Southwest Bean Burgers (From the Weight Watchers Powerfoods cookbook)
  • My review: The texture took a little getting used to but they were definitely yummy, super easy to make, and FILLING! I wish I took a picture but I forgot until it was half eaten LOL!!
  • Serves 4 / 4 PointsPlus per serving (1 patty)

  • Ingredients:
    • 2 tsp olive oil
    • 1 shallot, minced
    •  1 garlic clove, minced
    • 1 (15.5oz) can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
    • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
    • 1 large egg white
    • 2 tbsp slivered almonds
    • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro
    • 1tsp ground cumin
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • 1/2 tsp black pepper

  • Heat oil in small skillet over medium heat. Add shallot and garlic and cook, stirring often, until softened, 2 minutes. Transfer mixture to food processor.
  • Add beans, oats, egg whitem almonds, cilantro, cumin, salt, and pepper to processor. Pulse until combined. Shape mixture into 4 patties.
  • Spray a large nonstick skillet with nonstrick spray and set over medium heat. Add patties and cook until well browned, about 3 minutes each side.
I served these just like a hamburger with sauteed onions and mushrooms and a slice of tomato with hummus on whole grain bread and a side of chips and veggies.
