SPICY, MAN-APPROVED BLACK BEAN BURGERS

October 6, 2013

The Meatless Monday kick is something I’ve been really intrigued by (mostly financially), but never thought would be practical for us. David is like many men who believe it’s not a meal without meat. And let’s be honest, even as a girl I don’t really feel satisfied without some animal protein too.

Nonetheless, I decided to try my hand at it to find something veggie-friendly, but still every bit as sustaining and fulfilling. These burgers got both of our a-okays, and made us think maybe we could do Meatless Mondays. At least, every once in a while. Maybe. If there’s other dishes as good as this.

    The addition of 2 eggs caused the mixture to be too liquid-y to form the burgers properly. I think 1 egg might have been better. Pretty disappointing.

    These look ao good. Have you ever tried freezing them? I’m the lone veg in the house, so this makes more than I can eat at one thime. Thank you for this recipe. I look forward to trying it.

    I love spicy black bean burgers and have missed them since having to go gluten free. This is such an easy recipe, I look forward to trying it. My favorite “meal” is to take a spicy black bean burger and crumble it in a skillet then add in some eggs and top with cheddar. Such a yummy scramble :)

    These burgers look delicious! Would the recipe work if you replaced the panko breadcrumbs with homemade breadcrumbs? Panko breadcrumbs are usually imported from overseas, so homemade breadcrumbs may have less of an environmental impact in terms of transporting the product.
