  2. In a large bowl, add the black beans and mash with a potato masher until about 1/2 of the beans are smashed and the remaining beans are still whole. Add the sautéed vegetables to the beans and stir to combine. Form into 4 burgers and place on a platter.
  3. 3.Heat the same non stick sauté pan to medium high heat and add 1 tablespoon water. Cook the burgers for 3 – 4 minutes per side or until crispy and browned. Remove to a platter. In a small bowl combine the yogurt, chipotle powder, and smoked paprika for the Spicy Yogurt Sauce.
  4. Serve burgers on whole wheat buns with sliced tomatoes, lettuce, and a dollop of the Spicy Yogurt Sauce
