½ cup  Black beans, cooked

    • Cooked black beans as directed (need 1 cup of cooked black beans for recipe).

    • Once shallots are done, add to black bean mixture and pulse.

    • Once burgers are formed (recipe makes 4 burgers, ~1/3 cup each), re-heat the large saute pan and add remaining ½ tsp. of olive oil.  Swirl.
    •  Sear the burger on each side.  Could finish burger in oven if desired, but it should be done after cooking on each side for about 4 minutes (~8 minutes total).
