Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers
I really liked this recipe. TEXTURE: I wish it was a little more meaty in texture like some of the frozen brands. I AM a vegetarian, but I am a new one (one month to be exact), so I still like the texture of meat in my burgers, but the bean-y texture was very good, too--just different. TIME: It took a little longer to make than it was supposed to because I don't have a food processor and my food "chopper" was turning it into liquid (I don't know if that was supposed to happen), so I took it out before it was too late and chopped the rest by hand. Chopping by hand meant more time in the kitchen, and plus the burgers were a bit chunkier than I preferred. They were still very good. I added a tablespoon of Egg Beaters to it to make it stick together. It tasted good, and unfortunately nobody in my home wanted to try it, so I was alone in my enjoyment of these burgers (is that really a bad thing?).
I gave this recipe 5 stars because although the texture was not exactly perfect to me, this is a veggie burger and I realize it isn't supposed to taste like meat.
Update: I chopped the vegetables in the blender, which was probably a big mistake because it made it basically liquid. Will chop by hand next time because I don't have a real food processor.
