black-bean burgers... 25 minutes

the goods:

1 teaspoon plus 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 small red bell pepper, finely chopped
1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro
3/4 cup dried breadcrumbs
1 large egg, lightly beaten
mayonnaise, for serving
hamburger buns or kaiser rolls, for serving
1 avocado, thinly sliced

In a medium non-stick skillet heat 1 teaspoon oil over medium. Add onion and cook until golden and beginning to caramelize, 5 minutes. Transfer onions to a small bowl and wipe out skillet. In a large bowl, mash black beans. Stir in bell pepper, cilantro, breadcrumbs, and egg. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and form mixture into desired number of patties.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Cook patties, in batches, until crisp on outside and heated through, about 5 minutes, flipping once. Spread mayonnaise on buns; top with burgers, thiny sliced avocado, and onion.
