Black Bean Burgers

with BBQ-Glazed Onions & Spicy Arugula Salad

Griddled red onions, glazed in tangy BBQ sauce, add a sweet crunch to these hearty black bean burgers. We topped these with creamy garlic aioli and paired it with a salad of spicy pickled jalapeños and peppery arugula.

INSTRUCTIONS

1
Cook the burgers and onions

Heat 2 tbsp vegetable oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add just half the onion and a pinch of salt and pepper to one side of skillet. To other side, add burgers. Cook until onions are soft and starting to brown and burgers are golden brown, 5 to 6 minutes per side. Turn off heat, transfer burgers to plate, and cover with foil to keep warm. (4-serving meal: use ¼ cup vegetable oil) (TIP: Keep remaining onion for your own use.)

2
Make the BBQ-glazed onions and aioli

Add BBQ sauce to skillet with cooked onions and stir to combine. In small bowl, stir together mayo, garlic, and a pinch of salt and pepper.

3
Make the arugula salad

Combine arugula, just half the pickled jalapeños, pickling liquid, 2 tsp olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper to medium bowl and toss. (4-serving meal: use 4 tsp olive oil) (TIP: Use more pickled jalapeños if you prefer more spice; keep remaining pickled jalapeños for your own use.)

4
Toast the buns

Move oven rack to middle position and set oven to broil on high. Toast buns directly on rack until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. (TIP: All broilers are different; watch carefully to ensure buns don’t burn.)

5
Serve

Place bottom half of each bun on plate. Top with BBQ-glazed onions, black bean burgers, and some spicy arugula salad. Spread aioli on top buns and close burgers. Serve with remaining salad. Dig in!
