2 (14-ounce) cans black beans, drained, rinsed, and patted dry
1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil, plus more for cooking burgers
3/4 cup finely chopped bell pepper (1/2 of a pepper)
1 cup finely chopped yellow onion (1/2 of a large onion)
3 garlic cloves, minced (about 1 Tablespoon)
1 and 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup gluten-free Panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup feta cheese
2 large eggs
pinch salt + pepper
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Drain beans and spread on a cookie sheet and bake 10 minutes. Heat olive oil and sauté your onions and peppers until soft.
In a mixing bowl, add beans and onion mixture. Throw in all other ingredients and mash with a fork (or with your hands) until slightly mushed and chunky. Form burger patties.
Heat a touch more olive oil in your sauté pan, and cook burgers three to four minutes per side on low-medium flame.
Serve on your favorite burger or slider bun. Or go bun-less and top with guacamole or slaw.
