  • 1/2 Bays English Muffin, cut in cubes
  • 1/3 cup Macadamia nuts, lightly chopped


  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tablespoon grainy mustard
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste

  • 1/2 cup cooked brown rice
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 4 Bays English Muffins, split and toasted

For crust: Combine muffin cubes and chopped macadamia nuts in food processor. Process with on/off pulses until mixture is in crumbs. Spread crumb mixture in a plate and set aside.

For burgers: Mash beans in a large bowl. Stir in flour, mustard, tomato paste, salt, garlic, cumin, oats, rice and green onion; combine thoroughly. Form into 4 patties to fit muffins. Place patties in crumb mixture, turning to coat. Brush excess back onto plate. Grill or pan-fry burgers 3 to 5 minutes per side over medium-high heat until deep golden brown.

Arrange 2 muffin halves on plate for each serving. Spread muffins with pineapple mayonnaise. Top with shredded lettuce and bean burger. Cover with remaining muffin half.
