Rosemarie's Black Bean Okara Burgers Item Number: roblbeokbu(All ingredients are approximate)
One batch okara pressed till almost dry
1 1- lb can of black beans, drained and slightly crushed. (you may of course use your own from dried)
2 tablespoons grated onion
2 cloves of garlic grated
1/2 carrot grated
1/2 tsp. salt
about 1 cup flavored bread crumbs
oil for cooking
Mix okara and beans together mashing the beans somewhat. Add the rest of the ingredients, using just enough bread crumbs to make a stiff "dough" hold about 2 tablespoons of bread crumbs to the side.. Form into patties and flatten, coat with the extra bread crumbs and fry in a hot skillet in the oil. This may be baked in the oven and possibly sprayed with your choice of oil.
Serve with your favorite dipping sauce, or my favorite, salsa. Add a salad and you have a healthy fiber filled dinner.
