Ingredients

  • 2 TEASPOONS OLIVE OIL
  • 1 CUP CHOPPED ONIONS
  • 2 TEASPOONS GROUND CUMIN
  • 1 TEASPOON GROUND CORIANDER
  • 1/4 TEASPOON SALT
  • DASH OF GROUND BLACK PEPPER
  • 1 CUP FINELY CHOPPED MUSHROOMS
  • CUP GRATED CARROTS

    RINSED AND DRAINED
  • 1 LARGE EGG, LIGHTLY BEATEN

Steps

1) Warm the oil in a skillet on medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook for 5 minutes, stirring often. Stir in the cumin, coriander, salt, and pepper and cook until the onions soften, a couple of minutes. Add the mushrooms, carrots, cayenne, and orange juice, lower the heat to medium, cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 8 minutes.


2) While the vegetables cook, combine the ground tortilla chips, beans, and egg in a large bowl and mash well with a potato masher, or pulse in a food processor and then transfer to a bowl. When the vegetables are tender, drain, and stir into the bean mixture.


3) Form the burger mixture into six patties (a heaping 1/2 cup per burger) and place on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 375° oven for 25 minutes, until firm and lightly crusted.

Additional Tips:

These burgers are great on a bun with lettuce, tomatoes and all of your favorite fixin's. Use a food processor to grind the tortilla chips, it makes things easier.
