1 can of drained black beans
1 cup of cooked brown rice
3 cloves of crushed garlic
1 diced onion
1/4 cup cilantro (fresh and chopped)
2 egg whites
1 tsp chili powder
Salt and pepper

Use a fork to mash half of the beans, leaving the other half unmashed. Stir in all remaining ingredients.

Form into four patties. Either bake them in the oven at 375 degrees F for 25 minutes or place in a pan lightly coated with olive oil, and be careful when you are turning them because vegetarian burgers do have a tendency to fall apart easily. Cook on each side 4 to 5 minutes on medium heat.
