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.

What’s cookin’…

 

A fav vegan meal:

  • Brown rice & Black beans
  • Green beans
  • A lot of Avocado

I spice up boring Brown rice:  using both fresh and powdered spice – 1/2 t of IOnion, Garlic, Sazon, Tumeric, Black pepper. I hold back on salt since the mixed Spanish spice both contain salt. Saute 1 small onion in 1T of extra virgin olive oil (I used Carbonell, it’s 100% pure olive oil from Spain – really good flavor.

For my Black beans (one 16 oz can of beans) – add all of the above plus my homemade sofrito, 1 chopped medium potato, 1T tomato paste, cumin/comino, and 1 bayleaf.
