Cook: 25 minutes
2 cups chopped portabella mushrooms
1 cup finely chopped onion
1 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. each salt and black pepper
4 cups roughly chopped spinach
1 1/2 tbsp. chopped garlic
One 15-oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed

Bring an extra-large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, onion, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir until mostly softened, about 5 minutes.
Add spinach and garlic, and cook and stir until spinach has wilted and garlic is fragrant, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl, and pat dry.
Place beans and egg whites/substitute in a small blender or food processor, and puree until mostly smooth. Transfer to the bowl of cooked veggies. Add flour, and mix thoroughly. Stir in feta and sun-dried tomatoes. Evenly form mixture into 6 patties, about 1/2 cup each.
Clean skillet, if needed. Respray and bring to medium heat. Working in batches, cook patties until firm and lightly browned, 3 - 4 minutes per side, flipping gently.

HG Storage Tips: To freeze, tightly wrap each fully cooled patty in foil or plastic wrap. Then place in a sealable container or bag, seal, and freeze. To thaw, unwrap a patty, and place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave on high for 1 minute, or until it reaches your desired temperature. Alternatively, thaw overnight in the refrigerator.

SmartPoints® value* not what you expected?
