2 tablespoons olive oil
2 1/4 cups chopped onion
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 habanero pepper, chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger root
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground allspice
3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 1/4 cups cooked (or two 14.5 oz cans) black beans, rinsed and drained
2 1/4 cups cooked long-grain white rice
2 1/2 cups dry bread crumbs
6 hamburger buns, split
Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and garlic; cook and stir for a few minutes. Mix in the habanero pepper and continue cooking until tender. Remove from the heat and transfer to a bowl. Pour in the beans, rice and bread crumbs. Season with ginger, salt, allspice and nutmeg. Mix thoroughly using your hands. Form into 6 patties. Heat the remaining oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat (you can use the same one). Fry the patties until golden on each side, about 10 minutes total. Serve on buns with your favorite toppings.
Too spicy? Try a jalepeno or even a green pepper diced very small.
Substituting other types of rice would be nice. Try brown, jasmine, basmati, etc…
If you don't have any fresh ginger, try using ground, but reduce the amount by half.
