    I'm interested too. I tried making some with lentils that got good reviews, but I didn't think they tasted very good at all.

    Spicy Black Bean Burgers with Chipotle Mayonnaise

    adapted from All Recipes
    Skinnytaste.com
    Servings: 4 • Size: 1 burger w/ mayo bun + avocado • Old Points: 8 pts • Points+: 9 pts
    Calories: 362.6 • Fat: 14.0 g • Protein: 18.1 g • Carb: 50 g • Fiber: 15.1 g • Sugar: 7.1 g
    Sodium: 786.4 mg (without salt)
    Patty alone, no bun, no avocado, no mayo: 4 pts plus


    Ingredients:

    For the Spicy Chipotle Mayo:
    • 3 1/2 tbsp light mayonnaise (Hellman's)
    • 1 tbsp canned chipotle in adobo sauce

    For the Black Bean Burgers:
    • 16 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
    • 1/2 red bell pepper, cut into 2 inch pieces
    • 1/2 cup chopped scallions
    • 3 tbsp chopped cilantro
    • 3 cloves garlic, peeled
    • 1 jumbo egg
    • 1 tbsp cumin
    • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp kosher salt
    • 1 tsp hot sauce
    • 1/2 cup quick oats (use gf oats for gluten free)
    • 4 whole wheat 100 calorie buns (Martin's)*
    • 1 small hass avocado, sliced thin

    Directions:
    Combine mayonnaise and chipotle, set aside.
    Dry the beans well after washing, extra moisture keep the burgers from sticking. In a medium bowl, mash beans with a fork until thick and pasty.
    In a food processor, finely chop bell pepper, cilantro, onion, and garlic, then add oats, then eggs and spices. Then stir into mashed beans.

    Divide mixture into four patties (using slightly oiled hands helps) and place them onto a flat surface covered with wax paper. (If it's too wet, chill the mixture 30 minutes in the refrigerator or add another tablespoon of oats)
    Freeze at least 2 hours before cooking or keep frozen until ready to cook.

    Heat a lightly sprayed skillet to medium heat and cook frozen burgers about 7 minutes on each side.

    If grilling, preheat grill over medium heat, and lightly oil a sheet of aluminum foil; grill 7-8 minutes on each side or you can bake in the oven at 375° on a lightly oiled baking sheet.

    Creamy Curried Lentils


    INGREDIENTS:

    1 ½ cups green lentils
    1- teaspoons kosher salt
    1 large tomato
    1 large red bell pepper
    1 tablespoon good quality extra virgin olive oil
    1 tablespoon regular, cultured soure cream (not low fat)
    1/4 cup pistachios, roasted (I used salted)
    1 tablespoon curry powder
    1 teaspoon turmeric
    ground black pepper to taste
    20 leaves fresh basil


    1 - In 2 qt saucepan, combine lentils, salt and 4 cups of water. Bring water to a boil and reduce heat to simmer. Cook for 20 minutes or until soft. Drain any excess water and set lentils aside to cool

    2 - Place bell pepper under broiler until skin has blackened, rotating several times. Pull out and place on cutting board and cover with a dutch oven lid or some plastic wrap for 2-3 minutes to allow steam to loosen skin. Remove lid and rince under cool water to peel off skin; discard. Remove seeds, chop pepper and add to lentils.

    3 - Finely chop tomato and add to lentils. Combine remainin ingredients (except for basil) and stir well.

    4 - Stack basil leaves on top of each other and roll, lenthwise, like a cigar, Using kitchen shears, cut
    ¼ off of the end of roll. Continue to do this until all basil is cut into long, thin strips known as chiffonade. Stir into salad, reserving some for to sprinkle on top.

    5 - Cool in fridge for at least one hour. Serve alone or on a bed of bright, crisp leafy greens such as an arugula mix. It tastes even better by day two so plan on packing some for lunch!

    Recipe makes 6, ¾ servings.
