OK, so I don’t love beans. I’ve never been a huge fan of them in dishes or chili. I like black beans in fresh salsa and that’s about it. When I saw a recipe for a black bean burger on one of my go-to sites (AllRecipes.com), I was hesitant but wanted to give it a try. Let me tell you, I was so surprised! There is so much flavor in this recipe. I did make a couple of changes though…I am big on texture. I was worried that smashing the black beans with a fork wouldn’t be enough for me. So, I tossed them in my magic bullet with some water (maybe like 1/4 cup) and gave it a whirl. Which means I needed to add more breadcrumbs too. But if you like beans and texture doesn’t bother you, then I would just stick to this recipe because it is delicious! Also, I didn’t add hot sauce because I wanted them to be kid friendly. I did top mine with some cheddar cheese and smashed avocado. I served it on a piece of toasted Ezekiel bread with Romaine lettuce and vine ripe tomatoes. I have leftovers too…and I am thinking an egg on top of this burger will be ridiculously yummy.
