Red Bean Burgers

This red bean burger is a great alternative for when you're looking for something a little less greasy. Ms. Lou will even make them ahead of time and freeze the patties for grilling later.

Ingredients

 1 lb. Blue Runner Premium Select Red Beans
 10 cups water
 1 cup chopped onion
 1 cup chopped bell pepper
 6 cloves roasted garlic
 2 eggs
 1 Tbsp cumin
 2 Tbsp salt
 3 tsp Sriracha
 1 tsp cayenne
 2 cups bread crumbs

Directions

1

In a pot, add the water, washed red beans, and 1 tablespoon of salt. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the beans are tender, about an hour.

2

 In a food processor, chop the onion, bell pepper, and garlic. Strain the red beans and mash them until thick and pasty. Mix in vegetables.

3

In a small bowl, mix eggs, cumin, Sriracha, cayenne, and the rest of the salt. Add to the beans once the mixture is cool.

4

Stir in bread crumbs until mixture is thick. Form patties.

5

Place tin foil on top of grill and lightly coat in olive oil. Grill until brown, about 5 minutes each side.

You can literally set and forget it. Fun fact: According to the history books, Daube originated in southern France near Spain and–get this–bulls killed in bullfights were butchered and often used for this dish.
