Black Bean Burgers for the Whole Family

I found this recipe in one of my favorite cooking magazines Simple and Delicious. Not to sound redundant, but everything in the magazine is really simple and delicious! I made these the other night and they were a big hit with my husband and son. I modified the original recipe a little to make it more appropriate for my little guy ( I took out the really spicy stuff). This burger is full of yummy goodness for the whole family. It has protein, potassium, calcium, iron, and Vitamins A and C. This is for little ones 9+ months and mommies and daddies of all ages.

Here's what you need for 4 servings:
1 can (15 oz) black beans rinsed and drained
2/3 cup dry bread crumbs
2 to 3 tblsp mild salsa
1 red bell pepper finely chopped
1 egg
1 garlic clove minced
Olive oil cooking spray
4 whole wheat hamburger buns

1 avocado diced
Reduced fat sour cream or plain greek yogurt
1 tblsp mild salsa

Place beans in a food processor, cover and process until blended. Transfer to a large mixing bowl. Add the breadcrumbs, 2 to 3 tblsp salsa, chopped pepper, egg, and garlic. Mix until combined. Shape into 4 patties. Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Place patties in skillet and cook for 4 to 6 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Serve on buns. Top with avocado, a spoonful of salsa, and a spoonful of sour cream or plain greek yogurt. Enjoy!
