1/4 cup dried vegan bread crumbs

What you do: 

1. In a food processor, add onion. Process until minced. Add 1/2 the can black beans. Process until a soup is formed.
2. Add cumin, chili powder, black pepper, garlic powder, salt, and the rest of the black beans. Process until smooth.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Well, these didn't stay together very well (as per usual...for bean patties of mine..), but they tasted really great. We didn't care at all that they were quite fragile. I pureed the onion, added to the bowl, then pureed 1 cup of beans (home-cooked black bean mix-used 2 cups) at a time, then pureed one carrot. I wanted to use my mini food processor instead of the blender. I then added spices, and some homemade garlic bread crumbs. I ended up adding a lot more than 1/4 cup-probably like 1+ cup...but since mine were homemade..they were not really dry. I fried the first couple batches of these, and I'm going to bake the rest. Tasty!

I know that bean burger patties fall apart so easily! I discovered if you put the bean mixture in the freezer about 20 minutes before forming the patties it tends to help hold them together.

These were great! I folded in about 1/3 cup corn niblets into the mixture before forming into patties. I actually baked mine in the oven, and they turned out well. Sometimes I press these type of bean burger mixtures into a greased muffin tin and serve them with pineapple mango salsa.

These were SO good!!! I had run out of breadcrumbs so I used mashed up cheerios and wheat germ and it worked well. My one year old son even liked them! They did kind of fall apart a little bit toward the end of cooking, but i didn't mind :)
