Here’s what you need…

1/2 cup uncooked spiral pasta (whole wheat)

1 small onion, finely chopped

1-540 ml can black beans, rinsed, drained & dried

1/4 cup ketchup

1/4 cup chopped parsley

Finely grated zest from 1 lemon

1/4 tsp Herbamere

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 tbsp canola oil

Here’s what to do…

Cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling water until very soft, 15 min. While pasta is cooking, place onion, half of beans, ketchup, parsley, zest and herbamere in a large bowl. Set aside. Drain cooked pasta and rinse under cold running water. Dry pasta with paper towels, soaking up as much water as possible. Place pasta, remaining beans and garlic in a food processor. Whirl until smooth. Stir into onion mixture. Shape into 4 patties. Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium. Add 1 tbsp oil, then 2 patties. Cook for 3 min., then flip patties and cook until firm, about 3 more min. Repeat with remaining oil and patties.
