Here's a YouTube video I found if you want to torture yourself. Lol!
Also! Saturday after our yoga retreat, Thea, Michelle, Anne and I went back home and had a BBQ with the rest of Thea's family and made this AWESOME black bean burger. I didn't take pictures (sorry) but I guarantee you will enjoy this recipe.
Black Bean Burgers
12 oz. can black beans, rinsed
1 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs
1 large egg1/2 cup diced red onion
1/2 cup fresh or frozen corn
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
oil for frying
In large mixing bowl, mash together beans, breadcrumbs and egg. Add onion, corn, garlic, salt, cumin and chili powder. Mix well and form into six balls of equal size. Flatten to 1/2 inch thickness. Heat oil in frying pan. Add burgers and cook each side for 2-3 minutes. Serve on whole-grain bun with lettuce, tomato and condiments of your choice.
Instead of the wheat buns we got that artisan bread from Safeway, the cheese and jalapeno bread, heated it up and sliced into squares and had the black bean burgers on those with onions, lettuce, avocado, tomato....they were SO GOOD!
I will be drawing my Christmas Giveaway winner tomorrow! Stay tuned!
