I got the recipe from this cookbook that I got for Christmas this year. I can't even imagine how much it will get used this summer once we can finally bbq again! I served it with a simple salad and some yam fries (with a touch of cumin...ha!)
Black Bean Burgers
3 cups of black beans
4 eggs, beaten
4 tsp dijon mustard
1 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
salt and pepper
juice from half a lemon
*Preheat the oven to 375
*In a mixing bowl, mash the beans. Fold in the rest of the ingredients (minus the oil) and let sit for 5-10 minutes for the crumbs to soak up some of the moisture. This step is very important!
*Form into 8 patties and cook in a frying pan (in the oil) for 6-10 minutes, flipping once.
*Transfer to a pan and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes
I hope you are all enjoying reading this blog as much as I am enjoying writing in it. For now though, I am going to enjoy a quiet house as my husband has taken all 4 children out. *Bliss*
