Yet another from Skinnytaste.com Chat Icon

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.

*Nutritional value will vary slightly depending on buns. Look for low calorie whole wheat buns. For gluten free buns look for Udi's or Three Baker's brand. Points will increase.

I am possibly the worst person in the world in the kitchen... So everyone can make this and kids love it:

Zucchini a la George

1. Cut zucchini in half (lengthwise)
2. With a brush, brush olive oil on tops and bottoms
3. Sprinkle garlic salt on tops
4. Place on grill. Grill for a few minutes.

Yum yum!

Mexican pasta salad (variation of an old Bon Apetit recipe)
1lb fusilli pasta, cooked al dente and cooled
2 cups grape tomatoes, chopped
1 cup frozen corn, thawed
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can sliced black olives
1 orange pepper, chopped
1 yellow pepper, chopped
2 cups shredded Mexican or cheddar cheese
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
Sea salt, to taste
Fresh ground pepper, to taste

Dressing:
2 tbsp + 1 tsp dijon mustard
2 tbsp + 1 tsp lime juice
1/3 cup olive oil
1-1/4 tsp chili powder
1-1/4 tsp cumin
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Mix ingredients from pasta through fresh ground pepper. Separately, mix the dressing ingredients. Add the dressing and toss just before serving.

This is great bc it can all be done ahead of time (keep pasta w a little olive oil separate, then all veggies, etc less cheese separate and lastly dressing separate. Toss when serving.). Always get compliments and requests for recipe when I serve this.

Re: Post your favorite summer recipe for you chance to win 4 tickets to Adventureland!

So glad to have seen this, my husband and I hosted a party over the wekeend and wanted ALL Summer recipes so we found some good ones and tried them all were big hits:
From Eating Well:

4 servings
Active Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients
• 1/3 cup reduced-fat sour cream
• 1/2 cup chopped fresh chives, divided, plus more for garnish
• 3 tablespoons low-fat milk
• 2 teaspoons lemon juice
• 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
• 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
• 2 cups chopped zucchini
• 1 1/4 cups chopped green beans
• 1 cup fresh corn kernels, (from 1 large ear; see Tip)
• 1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
• 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
• 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
• 4 9-inch “ready-to-use” crêpes, (see Tip)

Preparation
1. Stir sour cream, 1/4 cup chives, milk, lemon juice and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small bowl until combined. Set aside.
2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add zucchini, green beans and corn and cook, stirring, until beginning to brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Reduce heat to low; stir in ricotta, Monterey Jack, the remaining 1/4 cup chives, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Cook, stirring gently, until the cheese is melted, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.
3. To roll crêpes, place one on a piece of parchment or wax paper (or leave it on the piece of plastic separating the crêpes in the package). Spoon one-fourth of the vegetable-cheese mixture (about 3/4 cup) down the center of the crêpe. Use the paper (or plastic) to help you gently roll the crêpe around the filling. Place the crêpe seam-side down on a dinner plate. Repeat with the remaining crêpes and filling. Serve each crêpe topped with 2 tablespoons of the reserved sauce and more chives, if desired.

Tips & Notes
• Tips: To remove kernels, stand a cob on its stem end in a bowl and slice them off with a sharp, thin-bladed knife.
• “Ready-to-use” crèpes are fast and convenient. Look for them in the produce section of the market or near refrigerated tortillas.

Tomato Corn Pie from Eating Well:

Makes 8 servings
Active Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours

Ingredients
Crust
• 3/4 cup whole-wheat pastry flour (see Note)
• 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
• 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
• 5 tablespoons cold water
Filling
• 3 large eggs
• 1 cup low-fat milk
• 1/2 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
• 2 medium tomatoes, sliced
• 1 cup fresh corn kernels (about 1 large ear; see Tip) or frozen
• 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried
• 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
• 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Preparation
1. To prepare crust: Combine whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a large bowl. Make a well in the center, add oil and water and gradually stir them in to form a soft dough. Wrap the dough in plastic and chill in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
2. Preheat oven to 400°F.
3. Roll the dough into a 12-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Transfer to a 9-inch pie pan, preferably deep-dish, and press into the bottom and up the sides. Trim any overhanging crust. Line the dough with a piece of foil or parchment paper large enough to lift out easily; fill evenly with pie weights or dry beans. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove the foil or paper and weights. Let cool on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes or up to 1 hour.
4. To prepare filling: Whisk eggs and milk in a medium bowl. Sprinkle half the cheese over the crust, then layer half the tomatoes evenly over the cheese. Sprinkle with corn, thyme, 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper and the remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Layer the remaining tomatoes on top and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Pour the egg mixture over the top.
5. Bake the pie until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 40 to 50 minutes. Let cool for 20 minutes before serving.
Tips & Notes
• Ingredient note: Look for whole-wheat pastry flour in large supermarkets and natural-foods stores. Store it in the freezer.
• To remove corn kernels from the cob, stand an ear of corn on one end and slice the kernels off with a sharp knife.
