      Reggae Burgers - Recipe
      from Vegetarian Planet, by Didi Emmons (Harvard Common Press, 1997).

      4 slices stale bread (or toasted sandwich bread)
      2 tablespoons olive oil
      1 1/2 cups chopped onion
      2 garlic cloves, pressed or finely minced
      1 tablespoon fresh ginger, finely minced
      1/2 teaspoon allspice
      1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
      1 15-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
      1 1/2 cups cooked rice
      1/2 Scotch bonnet or habanero pepper, or 1 jalapeno pepper, chopped
      salt and freshly-ground black pepper to taste

      1. Using a food processor, pulse bread to make crumbs, then place
      them in a large bowl.

      2. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium heat
      and add onions. Saute them, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes or
      until softened. Add garlic, ginger, allspice, and nutmeg, and saute
      for 2 minutes more. Put this mixture in the food processor, then add
      black beans, rice, and chopped pepper. Pulse ingredients until they
      are chopped but not pureed, then transfer mixture to a bowl.

      3. Add breadcrumbs to bowl, salt and pepper to taste, and stir
      thoroughly with a spoon. Add more bread crumbs if mixture is too wet.

      4. In a large skillet, heat remaining oil over medium heat. Form
      mixture into 4 patties and cook about 4 minutes per side until
      burgers have formed a dark brown crust.

      5. Serve with your favorite rolls and lettuce, tomato, and ketchup, if
      desired.

      Serve 4.

      *I find it works better to form and chill the patties for at least 20
      minutes before cooking them. They hold together better. They can also
      be frozen and cooked later.
