black bean mango jalepeno burgers

Servings: 15 smallish burgers or about a dozen larger ones

1 can vegetarian refried black beans
1 mango, diced
1 jalapeno, diced
5-6 green onions, diced
2 eggs, whisked
2 cups quick-cooking oats
3/4 to 1 cup cornmeal
A few dashes of whatever herbs you have on hand. I used:
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon dried savory
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
Dash salt and pepper, to taste
Canola oil, as needed
Hamburger buns

1. Stir everything but the oil together in a large bowl, forming a stiff dough. (I used 3/4 cup cornmeal, but you can use more if the dough is too sticky.)

2. Add 2 tablespoons canola oil to bottom of pan and heat on medium.

3. Form dough into small patties in the palm of your hand, and carefully lower into pan. Cook 5-7 minutes on each side, until the patties are cooked through. You may need to add more oil to the pan for each round of patties you fry.

4. Remove patties and place on paper towel-lined baking sheet to cool.

5. Place on bun and top with mango salsa or spicy mustard and enjoy.
