Black Bean-Cilantro Burgers

This is a healthier alternative to the traditional burger. Once you add in all the ingredients, it only ends up being about 1/3 meat.

Black Bean-Cilantro Turkey Burgers

2 eggs
3 cloves chopped garlic
2 teaspoons Penzey’s “Arizona Dreaming” seasoning
2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons low sodium Soy sauce 
1 cup chopped Cilantro-fresh
1 cup chopped white or yellow onion
1 tablespoon Nature’s Seasoning
1 can (8 oz.) black beans-drained well
Juice 2 limes

A few dashes soy sauce & Worchestershire sauce
1 cup Italian bread crumbs
2 pounds ground turkey

Mix the egg, onion and garlic in a large mixing bowl until the egg is well blended. Add the soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and other seasonings. Add turkey, cilantro and lime juice. Mix well together, and gradually add breadcrumbs, adjusting for texture and making sure they are adhering well. This should make 8 medium sized patties. Pre-heat grill. Spray with Pam to avoid sticking. Cook the burgers on the preheated grill on a low setting, until juices run clear, about 6 minutes per side.
