Oh, I’ve tried a lot of homemade veggie burgers. Lentil burgers that took hours, Bulgur and Black Bean Burgers that didn’t hold together very well, and the Pumpkin Black Bean Burgers which were actually pretty good. I am looking for the perfect veggie burger, except I’m not sure exactly what that means. So here is yet another option, adapted from this recipe.
The verdict is……they’re OK. I like the pumpkin version better, although these are nice for their simplicity, and I could have made them more interesting with spices. I already have my eye on the next veggie burger recipe I want to try, with spelt flour.
***Stay tuned for a blog announcement tomorrow!***
1 (15oz.) can black beans, rinsed, drained, and mashed
1/4 c. whole wheat flour
2 T ketchup
1 T mustard
1 T lime juice
Salt and Pepper
Mix all ingredients, and form into thin patties. Cook on a hot skillet coated with cooking spray for 5 minutes on each side.
