Homemade Black Bean Burger
This is one of the times when experimenting with making something you never made before without a recipe actually works! This makes a wonderful meatless Monday dish and it's just plain rewarding to make from scratch. I soaked and cooked black beans. I added most of the cooled cooked beans to a food processor. I saved the rest of the black beans I cooked to add in later to give my burger texture. A burger doesn't taste right to me without onions. It's hard to believe that there are people who don't like onions! I come from an onion eatin family where we can eat saute onions as a side dish. With that said I diced a large raw sweet onion and added half the amount to the food processor saving the rest to add in later with the leftover beans. I also added one clove of garlic and a small amount of arrowroot starch to the food processor with my seasoning (sea salt, black pepper, spikes and fresh cilantro).
