To make a lighter, leaner burger patty that still hits the spot, Joy Bauer combines ground turkey with black beans and hearty spices.
In a large mixing bowl, add black beans and mash by hand using a potato masher (it's fine to leave bean chunks throughout). Toss the remaining ingredients into the bowl with beans and mix thoroughly. Shape into 8 patties and grill or cook in a skillet liberally coated with oil spray for about 5 minutes on each side or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
Serve patties on a whole grain hamburger bun and top with lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles and a squirt of ketchup or mustard.
