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.
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.
