Where’s the Beef???

The other night I was tired and not in the mood to make dinner…but the darndest thing about kids, you have to feed them!  It was 6:00 and I had to get my act together.  What did I have and what could I make that resembled a meal and not a bowl of oatmeal – not that breakfast for dinner isn’t a great option, too!

Black beans, sweet potatoes (roasted cauliflower on the side)

Black bean burgers :

  •  2 cans of rinsed and drained black beans (or about 3 1/2 cups)
  • 1T garlic – diced
  • 1/4 c onion, grated with juice
  • 2T cilantro, chopped fine
  • 2T parsley, chopped fine
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 c breadcrumbs (reg or gluten free)
  • salt / pepper to taste

Smash the beans, stir in remaining ingredients.  Form in to burgers what ever size you desire, about 3/4″ thick.  I cooked in a cast iron pan with olive oil, just a few min on each side to crisp and brown.  Serve as you would a ham/cheeseburger.  I just can’t get over how much it LOOKS like a beef burger?
