Black Beans = The Bomb

Like tic tic.


Steve has been requesting bean burgers FOREVER!  Somehow they never made the cut on the weekly menu plan.  But tonight things changed.  Bean burgers will be a staple in this house.  Especially the black bean variety.

These were extremely easy to make and were creamy and delicious.



  • 1 can black beans
    • rinsed, drained, and mashed
  • 1/2 green pepper, 1/4 large onion, and 3 cloves garlic,
    • roughly chopped, sautéed, and then minced in a food processor

*The sautéing is an extra step, but I wouldn’t eliminate it.  I sauté peppers and onions whenever I get the chance because I love the sweetness instead of the bite.

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper

Mash it all together and form 4 patties.  Bake at 375 degrees for 8 minutes on each side.  Add cheese at the end and warm for a few more minutes to melt.


I’ll be crumbling my extra burger over a big salad for lunch tomorrow.  Can’t wait!

And I’m off to do some readin’ and …


What’s your favorite bean?
