Your Heart Will Love These Black Bean Patties

Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.

Beans, beans, good for your heart... We won't finish that little rhyme, but I do love beans. I use a lot of black beans in my meals lately because Jason's been looking to add more protein and fiber to his diet, and because they really are such a heart healthy food. They are an awesome substitute for meat in recipes, so they are perfect to keep on hand for Meatless Monday meals. I use them in my tacos, shepherd's pie, and casseroles all of the time. Now, with the weather starting to warm up, we are all probably looking forward to cookouts with our family and friends. This year I'll be skipping out on the burgers on the grill and will be opting to have these amazing Black Bean Patties that I found on Golden Blossom Honey instead.
 
Black Bean Burger
Made with a combination of black beans and spices, this burger is tender but has quite a kick of flavor. The recipe does call for using canned black beans, but I used 2 cups of dry black beans that I cooked in my pressure cooker, though I am sure that either method will produce the same end result. Serve it up with some ketchup, mustard, sour cream or yogurt for a healthy, filling meal.

Ingredients
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 green scallions, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
2 cans (15 ounces each) black beans, rinsed and drained
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY MUSTARD
salt and pepper, to taste

  1. Hooray for cooking the beans instead of using the canned poison :) Ewww on cumin, nom on scallions and garlic! Spring onions and radishes have arrived here too with early signs of spring and even tomatoes, which is the earliest I've ever seen them arrive, so I used the opportunity to buy them for my morning samiches!

    1. I used to hate cumin, but grew to love it a few years ago when my sister-in-law seasoned our tacos with it for our Cinco de Mayo celebrations. Now, I have to use it every time I make tacos.

      Yay for seasonal veggies rolling back around!

  3. Those burgers sound really good. Beans are always a great choice for any sort of meat-like dish. Plus, they're full of protein.

  5. Those sound really good! I've never actually had a "burger" made with beans, but I imagine the flavor and texture of the beans lend themselves very well to being a burger.

  12. I never had a black been burger before but this looks awesome! I have to try this recipe soon. It would be a good change to still have a burger but less the grease.
