I haven’t been able to blog for a few weeks. A new semester started which means craziness! But I just want to say…
Now on to the food!Hiding in that amazingly crisp romaine is a deliciously cheap black bean burger. I was buying Morningstar farms frozen chipotle ones because I’d convinced myself it must be impossible to make burgers from black beans. I was wrong and I am so happy. They were very easy to make and I had all of the ingredients lying around my house.
I got the recipe from Tastes Better From Scratch
The ingredients are: a can of black beans which by the way costs less than $1. An onion, green pepper, an egg scrambled, whole wheat bread crumbs and some spices.
Oh yeah, don’t forget my favorite! The garlic!!! Anywho I used my fancy pampered chef hand chopper to do this:
Then I utilized this super expensive metal thingy to do this:
Scrambled up some eggs
Starting combining these three things:
Added in the spices and bread crumbs like so and mixed:This mixture formed some great patties and they did not fall apart!
I actually wrapped mine in lettuce in place of using a bun. This goes great with Greek yogurt on top as sour cream! The recipe includes a chipotle mayo recipe which I did not make because I didn’t have some of those things lying around and I substituted Greek yogurt. I always use good old G Y as S C.

Yummy! We use this as a meatless option instead of buying frozen ones. I don’t think I spent more than $3.00 to make these either. Those are Alexa Sweet Potato fries on the side 😄
