Black bean burger patties recipe
Let me start this post by saying this wasn’t supposed to be a black bean burger patty recipe. My original idea was to create an actual bean burger topped with plenty of vegetables and dressed with a dollop of spicy mayo. But I quickly had to let go of that concept when I saw that the patties were way too soft to be served on hamburger buns. Bummer!
However, the taste was spot on and I found myself eating the black bean burger patties just like that, sprinkled with cilantro and a squirt of ketchup. These bean patties are very VERY good, so good in fact that I had to stop myself from eating the entire thing right then and there, and save some for dinner. So what if this didn’t turn out exactly the way I wanted, this is one recipe worth sharing.
Blending the vegetables helps keep the patties moist on the inside and gives them a soft and tender texture with every bite you take. I was surprised by how much the subtle flavor of the sprinkled cilantro imparted on the patties and blended so well with the sweetness of the ketchup.
I am not a vegetarian by any means so I know I have a solid dish when I don’t feel like I am missing meat or fish on my plate. Lately I have been making a lot more vegetarian dishes but that’s simply by pure coincidence, I haven’t been focusing on that but rather do it because it’s what I am craving these days. I am seeing that so much can be done without meat and it’s been a fun and interesting experiment. Plus, it makes slicing through a big juicy steak feel like a treat and taste so much better!
