Black Bean Burgers

This recipe was from a past newsletter.  Thanks Kristy for mentioning it today at Boot Camp… I almost forgot about it!
These burgers are bursting with flavour and high quality nutrients to fuel your body!  Serves 4.
2 medium leeks, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp olive oil, divided
1 1/2 cups canned black beans (drained and rinsed)
1/4 cup toasted almonds, chopped
1/2 cup cooked brown rice
1/4 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
1/4 cup plain, non fat Greek yogurt
Salt & pepper to taste
Cayenne pepper, to taste, if desired
Sauté leeks in 1 tsp oil.  When leeks are soft, add garlic and sauté 2-3 minutes more.  Set aside.  In large bowl, combine yogurt and bread crumbs.  Using a food processor, grind the black beans, leek and garlic, almonds and brown rice.  Add black bean mixture to yogurt mixture, using hands to mix (should be a dry consistency).  Season to taste and form into 4 large patties.  Heat 2 tsp oil in pan.  Fry burgers for 3 minutes per side on medium high.  Serve on a whole wheat bun topped with guacamole, a thin slice of cheese and red onion.  For a low carb option, serve the patties with a hearty mixed green salad.  Delicious!
