Black Bean Burgers

With the recommendations to decrease red meat intake and switch to a plant-based diet, these homemade black bean burgers are a great weeknight dinner option.

2 cups black beans, drained and mashed with a fork
1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
1/4 cup grated onions
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 egg
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Canola oil, for oiling grill pan
