Whip It Up week 5: Black Bean Veggie Burgers

More coming soon, but in the mean time here is the recipe I used (and actually followed pretty closely this time!):

Black Bean Veggie Burgers

We ate them open-faced, sitting on a whole-wheat pita with lettuce, guacamole (also home-made: recipe below), lettuce, and salsa. It was pretty darn tasty! My hubby, sister, and friend all enjoyed them.

My fav way to make guacamole:
(doesn't count as an official recipe because I have definitely done this many time before)
- 2 ripe avocados, pitted and cubed
- juice of 1 lime
- kosher salt and fresh-ground pepper to taste
Put it in a bowl. Toss it together. Eat it with a fork or a tortilla chip. If you're using it as a topping (like for a burger), it might be more manageable if you mash it up, but when I just eating it with chips (or a fork, like I said), I like it in about 1 cm cubes.

Pics and additional details coming, but I wanted to get this posted so I could send the permalink.


  1. Great recipe and all but you have a twitter account and I didn't know!?!?! I am hreatbroken. But I'm going to add you.

  2. I love black beans so much! Unfortunately, the avocados around here look so pathetic. It makes me sad.
