black baked bean burgers.

My husband was wary. I was excited.
These will make many more appearances in my life.

I started with 1 cup of black beans, 1 cup of kidney beans, and 1/2 cup of organic baked beans, mostly for flavor.

Then, this is where you can get a little creative.
I threw in some red onion, cumin, chili powder, salt & pepper.
I'm a little lean on the groceries, being that it's the end of the week, but you could just go nuts here! Cheese? Why not! Avocado chunks! Sure. Garlic? Definitely!

A few tablespoons of whole wheat flour help for the congealing process.

A few minutes on the griddle on each side and woosh, what a beauty.

I was SO hungry and paired mine with one slice of ezekiel bread, organic ketchup, dijon mustard, and honey drizzled corn.

The hilarious thing was, the whole time I ate this - I kept thinking how funny it was that this is now a splurging meal for me. Because I ate corn and an extra bean patty.
And for real, I am FULL. Beyond full.

the husband's opinion: "it was really good. the baked beans were good. it was a nice surprise." If I keep blogging about food, I'm going to have to groom him on his comments.

one patty tops out around 200 calories and I don't mind telling you I'm way over my calories for the day. But goodness gracious, it was worth it.
I love you b4.

  1. Um, Mrs.! I just tried a new black bean veggie burger! Black beans, onion, egg, spinach, and oh my stars, I could eat them for days. And you bake so there's no extra oil and fat. I am convinced we are taste bud soulmates, if nothing else. I will mos def be trying your recipe. I'll link mine to your FB.
