(Easy and Excellent)
- 1 tsp. oil
- 1/2 c. minced onion
- 5 minced scallions, optional
- 1 c. corn kernels
- 1/4 c. homemade salsa
- 1/2 c. cooked brown rice
- 1 1/2 c. (16oz.) cooked black beans
- 1-2 c. whole wheat bread crumbs
Heat oil in medium and saute onion and scallions for 4 minutes. Add corn and salsa and heat through. Scoop corn mixture, rice, beans, and 1 cup bread crumbs in a food processor and blend well. Check texture by trying to form a patty. If it doesn't hold together, add more bread crumbs. Divide mixture into 8 patties. Grill or broil on a cookie sheet 5 minutes each side. Serve as you would hamburgers.

*It can be hard to find good whole wheat hamburger buns. Trader Joe's has a half way decent bag, but in this recipe, whole wheat english muffins are also really tasty!
*Guacamole is a terrific compliment to this recipes southwestern flavor.
