Simple 5 Ingredients Black Bean Burger

  1.   1, 15 oz. can of Black beans, rinse in a colander
  2.   2 large Scallions/ Green Onions – finely chopped
  3.   1 T Gluten-free flour or any flour if you’re not eating gluten-free
  4.   1/2 t Spicy Mustard
  5.   Dash of Salt & Black pepper
  • Add everything into a large bowl and mash it up roughly using a potato masher.
  • Pan fry it in a cast iron skillet….get your skillet very hot first, then add you favorite oil… I used 1 T. extra virgin oilive oil.
  • Take a large handful of the black bean mixture, gently form it …it’s ok for it to look rustic.
  • Add it to the hot skillet and let it crisp up a few minutes on each side, flip it using a large firm slotted spatula.
  • Make 3-4 Burgers.

My husband, not Vegan nor Gluten-free and he loved this meal.

I served it on a slice of gluten-free bread, spreading avocado to the bread and topped it with Daiya (dairy-free) Sharp Shredded cheese.

Added diced potatoes, corn and fresh cucumbers with dill to complete the dish for a hearty meal.

A good Protein Powder!!!

 

I searched and searched…and finally found a really good protein powder!! No Soy, Whey or added refined Sugar….Bob’s Red Mill is perfect for me!! I bought the Chai and the Vanilla. I haven’t tried the Vanilla yet but have no doubt it will be good. They had a promo offering the shaker free with purchase – a nice addition when I am on-the-go. I often blend my smoothies adding some kind of frozen fruit (Blueberry, Strawberry or Mango), Almond & Cashew Nut milk, the protein powder, Hemp seeds, Matcha, Spinach, Tumeric, Black Pepper.

Happy Summer Smoothie days for me!
