Ingredients
  

  • 2 package Fresh Express® Twisted Avocado Caesar Chopped Salad Kits® (9.7-ounce)
  • 8 ounces mushrooms finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup red onion finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil divided
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 can black beans rinsed and drained
  • 6 tablespoons bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro minced
  • 4 whole wheat buns

Instructions
 

  • Cook the mushrooms and onion in 1 tablespoon canola oil in a skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes or until tender. Add garlic and pepper; cook for 2 minutes.
  • Whisk egg and Worcestershire sauce in a large bowl; add black beans. Mash beans with a fork, until almost all beans are mashed. Add mushroom mixture, bread crumbs and cilantro; mix well. Shape into four 4-inch diameter 1/2-inch-thick patties. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Cook burgers in remaining 1 tablespoon canola oil in a skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes a side or until heated through. Reduce heat if the patties are browning too quickly.
  • Place the Fresh Express® Twisted Avocado Caesar Chopped Salad Kits® into a large bowl; toss with the salad dressing. Add the toppings; toss to combine.
  • Serve burgers on buns topped with the Twisted Avocado Caesar Chopped Salad Kit®; add ketchup, mayonnaise, etc. as desired.

Notes

Tip: You can also serve the Black Bean Burgers on top of the Twisted Avocado Caesar Chopped Salad Kit®. Just add some tomatoes and pickled red onions for a delicious entrée salad.
