My First Black Bean Burger!

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 (, 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.
