This delicious burger with southwest flavors is perfect in a whole wheat bun, on an open faced sandwich or served with a salad and side baked potato. It freezes well too.

Prep Time15 minsCook Time10 minsTotal Time25 mins
 1 ¼ cups cooked brown rice (homemade or frozen and cooked)
 2 cans or 3 1/2 cups cooked black beans, rinsed and drained
 ½ cup finely chopped onions
 2 garlic cloves, chopped
 ½ tsp ground cumin
 1 tsp low sodium soy sauce
 ½ tsp kosher salt (optional)
 ½ cup 1 slice whole wheat bread crumbs or 1/2 cup old fashioned (whole) oats
 2 tbsp aquafaba (liquid from canned chickpeas)
 2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
 ½ tsp chipotle chile powder
 ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  tsp ground cayenne pepper
 ½ tbsp vegan Worcestershire sauce
 ½ tsp paprika (not smoked)
 ½ tsp onion powder
Directions
1

Line a baking pan with parchment paper. In a food processor, process the bread until you have fine crumbs. Set aside in a small bowl.
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat for two minutes. Add the onions. Cook for five minutes, adding a tablespoon or two of water if they start to stick. Add the garlic and cook for a couple more minutes. Place the cooked onions and garlic, beans, rice and all ingredients except the bread crumbs in the food processor and pulse 3-4 times. Remove the lid and scrape down the sides. Replace the lid and pulse a couple more times. Everything should look combined but still have chunks of beans, not mushy or reduced to a paste. Place the mixture in a large bowl and add the bread crumbs. Mix well with a large spoon. Form 6-8 patties and place on the parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 425 degrees for approximately 10 minutes, turning after 5 minutes. You can also use an air fryer, at 375 degrees for 5 minutes, turn and cook for 5 more minutes, or until heated through.

Brown Rice
I like to cook my brown rice pasta style. Heat a large pot of water as if you were cooking pasta. Place two cups of brown rice in the boiling water and reduce the heat until it's still bubbling. Cook the rice for 25-30 minutes or until it's done to your liking. Depending on the type of rice you're using it can take less or more time. Drain the rice in a colander. Place the drained rice back into the large pot you used for cooking it. Place a lid on the pot and allow it to steam, off the heat, for approximately 10 minutes. The rice should be fluffy and perfect.
