Rinse and drain the beans.
Happens every time I open a can, and I don't even have an electric can opener!
Place the beans in a large glass bowl and lightly mash.
Chop up the onion and add it to the beans.
Chop up the cilantro and add it to the bowl.
Grate in garlic.
Add panko crumbs, soy sauce, salt, pepper then beat egg and add it to the bowl.
Mix everything up.
Form bean mixture into 4 patties, place on a rimmed sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
Pop them into your oven for 6 to 7 minutes.
While the patties are cooking put together your mayonnaise, sriracha and lime
After 6 or 7 minutes take patties out and flip them. Put buns on sheet
and put back in the oven. (I was only having one patty,that's why
there is only one bun!)
Back in the oven for 2 to 3 minutes.
To assemble: Spread mayo mixture on top and bottom of bun.
Place the patty on bottom half and top with lettuce. Yum!
On-Air Weekday Mornings 4 am - 10 am
I grew up Radford, Virginia but I was actually born in Bangkok, Thailand. (Army Brat) While attending Virginia Tech I worked at WKEX Radio. My first job was to wear the station's mascot costume. I was the "Wacky Bird!" After graduation I moved to Myrtle Beach and was a radio reporter for WNMB. I later worked as a reporter for a Florence based TV station. I moved on from there to a radio station in Richmond, VA then on to Cleveland, Ohio where I worked for Power 108. After one winter in Cleveland I knew I needed a little warmer climate.I was hired as the Morning Co-host and News Director of K-92 in Roanoke, VA. It is at that station where I met Mo. He was hired as K-92ï¿½s nighttime jock. After about 8 months, Mo was moved up to do mornings with me. We were dating at the time but nobody knew about it. We got married in 1994 and have been together ever since. Mo and I left K-92 and went to do mornings at B-103 in Richmond, Virginia. Then in 1999 we came to South Florida. We've been on several stations in the West Palm Beach area but KOOL 105.5 has been our professional home since 2003. We have a home in Palm Beach Gardens that we share with our cats Stifler, Stewie and Cleveland. (All strays!)(By the way if my last name seems familiar to those of you who watched the CBS Evening News back in the day, my Uncle was reporter/commentator Eric Sevareid.)
