Quick & Easy Black Bean Burgers

2 cups black beans, drained and mashed
1/4 cup nonfat Greek yogurt

1/4 cup fresh bread crumbs (you can just crumble up a slice of bread)

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

2 chopped green onions

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground chipotle chili powder (

1 small clove garlic, pressed

1 tablespoon oil

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mash with a fork until well combined. Shape into 4 patties. The patties will be very soft. (I found it easiest to gently divide the bean mixture into four balls, add to the skillet and then flatten.) Heat the oil in a nonstick skillet and cook patties over medium heat for about 5 to 6 minutes on each side until browned and crisp. Serve, if desired, with avocado cream.

Avocado cream:

1 very ripe avocado, mashed

1 tablespoon lime juice

3 tablespoons water

1/4 teaspoon salt

Combine all ingredients and mix well until smooth. A wire whisk will work well, if you want it very smooth process in a food processor or blender.
