Beans are important in the diabetics diet. This is a great alternative to beef.
1 can (15-oz) black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup dry whole-wheat breadcrumbs
1/4 cup minced red onion
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp dried cumin
1/8 tsp fresh ground black pepper
Place beans in a large mixing bowl and partially mash using a fork. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Divide mixture into four equal parts and shape into patties.
If grilling, spray grill with non-stick cooking spray. Grill about five minutes on each side.
If cooking in skillet or on griddle, spray surface before cooking and again when you turn burgers.
I like to serve on a whole-grain sandwich thin instead of a bun. Garnish with your favorites, I prefer pickle, onion, lettuce and tomato.
