Mr. B. loves to try new recipes and I thought throwing a black bean burger his way would definitely be something new for him. He is very much a meat and potatoes kind of guy, so this is a tad out of his comfort zone, but right smack in the middle of mine.
I searched all over for a spicy black bean burger recipe that fit the ingredients I had available and found one that was close. Time to substitute out a few things and redo the recipe to fit what we had in the house. Note for anyone that makes this – do not try to pulse the ingredients in a blender. They are too dry and the bottom bits because watery mush while the top part stays dry as the desert. I made a mess using a 2 cup food processor and because of this recipe, we will now be purchasing a much larger one. Like this one or this one. Adapted from Spoon Fork Bacon

We ate ours on whole wheat buns with my lazy version of sriracha mayo. Take 1/2 cup mayo and whisk in 2 tablespoons of sriracha hot sauce.
For the real, from scratch thing, check out this recipe here from Cucina Kristina. Some lettuce and tomato helped with the serious deliciousness and we were set. Mr. B. complained a little bit about it falling apart while he was eating – alas, I explained, this is often the case with veggie based burgers.
Happy eating. 🙂
