Updated Oct 20, 2016

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 (15-oz.) can Progresso™ or Old El Paso™ black beans, drained, rinsed
  • 1 cup chopped fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped roasted red bell peppers (from 7.25-oz. jar)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup Progresso™ Italian Style Bread Crumbs
  • 4 (1 1/2-oz.) slices provolone cheese, halved
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 4 burger buns, split
  • ketchup, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Cook rice in water as directed on package.
  • 2
    In food processor bowl with metal blade, combine cooked rice, black beans, mushrooms, onions, roasted peppers and garlic powder. Pulse to coarsely chop mixture. Add bread crumbs; pulse to mix. DO NOT PUREE.
  • 3
    Shape mixture into 4 patties, 1/2 inch thick; place on broiler pan. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat for 10 to 12 minutes or until patties are thoroughly heated, turning once.
  • 4
    Place 2 pieces of cheese on each patty; broil an additional 1 minute or until cheese is melted. Place lettuce and patties in buns. Top patties with ketchup.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Provolone is an aged cow’s milk cheese from southern Italy. Mild and smoky, provolone cheese is creamy-yellow in color. It’s a popular choice for Italian-style sandwiches.
  • tip 2
    Kidney, garbanzo or pinto beans can be use in place of the black beans in these veggie burgers. These lighter-colored beans, however, will not produce a dark-colored burger that mimics a hamburger.
  • tip 3
    To make vegetable burgers vegans will enjoy, omit the cheese or use soy-based, non-dairy cheese in place of the provolone cheese.
