Black Bean Spiced Burgers

Zesty, flavorful, vegetarian burgers.

Directions:

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat and spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium sauté pan, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Sauté the zucchini, onion, and carrot until vegetables are translucent and soft, about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  3. Place vegetable mixture and remaining burger ingredients in a food processor. Process until thoroughly mixed.
  4. Portion into 8 patties of black bean mixture and refrigerate for 10 minutes to set.
  5. Grill patties 2 minutes and rotate 90 degrees to create a crosshatch pattern. Cook for 2 minutes, flip over and repeat.
  6. In a medium bowl, combine cilantro, lime zest, lime juice and Greek yogurt. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  7. To assemble, spread 1 slice of wheat toast with 1 tablespoon of yogurt sauce. Layer with 3 slices avocado, 2 slices tomato, 1 slice onion, 1 piece of lettuce, 1 burger patty and top with 1 slice of wheat toast.
