Good afternoon! I’m loving reading all your comments on my Aurorae yoga mat giveaway post! Keep ‘em coming :)
Standing in front of my fridge awhile ago, I spied some black beans waited to be used up, so I decided to make homemade black bean burgers for lunch!
Doesn’t it look a lot like a real burger?? Weird.
Anyway, these were super quick, easy, and tasty! :)
Homemade Black Bean Spinach Burgers
(makes two patties)
1 C black beans (rinsed and drained)
1 C fresh spinach
2 Tbsp. whole wheat pastry (or regular) flour
1 small garlic clove
1/2 tsp. olive oil
1/4 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. chili powder
Juice from half a lemon
Toss it all into a food processor and whirl away! (Or you can do this by hand for a chunkier texture — just chop the spinach separately.)
Once it’s mixed, form into two patties. Toss them onto a skillet coated with cooking oil and cook on medium low for about 10 minutes, flipping every once in awhile, until they are evenly warm and have a bit of a crust on them.
I enjoyed mine on a whole wheat sandwich thin with lots of ketchup (organic… no HFCS!!) :) I also had a huge salad and an orange!
Back to studying — we have a quiz in Anatomy & Physiology this afternoon… arg. This class covers SO much information so quickly, and the teacher is horrible. Bad combination!
Have a good one! :)
