Cannellini Bean Burgers
Ingredients
  • 1 15 - 16  ounce can  cannellini beans (white kidney beans), rinsed and drained
  • 3/4  cup  soft whole wheat bread crumbs (1 slice)
  • 1/2  cup  chopped onion (1 medium)
  • 1/4  cup  broken walnuts, toasted if desired
  • 2  tablespoons  coarsely snipped fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
  • 2  cloves garlic, quartered
  • 1  tablespoon  olive oil
  • 4  whole grain hamburger buns, split and toasted
  • 2  tablespoons  bottled light ranch salad dressing
  • 2  cups  fresh spinach leaves
  • 1/2  of a medium  tomato, sliced
Directions

1. In a food processor combine drained cannellini beans, 1/4 cup of the bread crumbs, the onion, walnuts, basil, and garlic. Cover and process until mixture is coarsely chopped and holds together.

2. Shape the bean mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. Place the remaining 1/2 cup bread crumbs in a shallow dish. Carefully brush both sides of each patty with oil. Dip patties into bread crumbs, turning to coat.

3. Preheat a grill pan or large skillet over medium heat. Add patties to pan or skillet. Cook for 10 to 12 minutes or until heated through, turning patties once halfway through cooking. (Reduce heat to medium-low if patties brown too quickly.)

4. Spread cut sides of bun bottoms with ranch salad dressing. Top with burgers, spinach, tomato slices, and bun tops.
