Use what you got

Veggie Black Bean Burgers!

I used this recipe RIGHT HERE and I made a few modifications like adding garlic and two whole chopped up peppers. So it looked more like this:

1 cup cooked black beans, half mashed
1 cup cooked brown rice, mostly mashed
1 T cayenne pepper
2 cloves garlic, chopped fine
2 peppers of your choice, depending on how spicy you like it (I dont know what I used from my parents garden but woo it was spicy)
salt to taste
oil for frying

Basically just combine all ingredients and mash mash mash! Form into patties (I think I ended up with about 5) and heat the oil in a large skillet. Fry on both sides until brown(er than they already are from the black beans :)). They will kind of fall apart so we're looking into making more modifications to the recipe but honestly they were so good it didn't even matter that they were a tad mushy. I served mine on a whole wheat bun with tomato, avocado, and some veganaise.

Somehow the pictures I had have disappeared but if you've seen one black burger you've seen them all, right?

I'll leave you with a picture of my cat.

sounds pretty good maybe you could use an egg next time or some bread crumbs that would keep it together better.

use more oil when you fry. and add a sticking agent... thats why most veggie burgers have egg in them.. but ew. so look into egg substitutes *bananas work wonderfully but wouldnt be so good in burgers* and substitute accordingly :)
