Homemade Black Bean Burger

This is one of the times when experimenting with making something you never made before without a recipe actually works! This makes a wonderful meatless Monday dish and it's just plain rewarding to make from scratch.   I soaked and cooked black beans.   I added most of the cooled cooked beans to a food processor.   I saved the rest of the black beans I cooked to add in later to give my burger texture.  A burger doesn't taste right to me without onions.  It's hard to believe that there are people who don't like onions!  I come from an onion eatin  family where we can eat saute onions as a side dish.  With that said I diced a large raw sweet onion and added half the amount to the food processor  saving the rest to add in later with the leftover beans.  I also  added one clove of garlic and a small amount of arrowroot starch  to the food processor with my seasoning (sea salt, black pepper, spikes and fresh cilantro).

  Here are the burgers on the electric grill.   It's great when experiments turn out right!
