Mine are delicious, Vegan-Friendly AND Gluten-Free! If you are carb-conscious, you’ll be happy to know my BBB are so satisfying, nourishing and filling you will enjoy them even sans bun, so as not to pile on too many carbs at one seating.
Yes to Black Bean Burger.
You have all heard of the Impossible Burger. I think the name was meant as a challenge (is a good vegan burger attainable? You bet!) that was met with flying colors. But I urge you to read the ingredient list in these burgers, and you will see there is hardly any food in it, except maybe for the highly objectionable protein isolates.
I make no end of Burgers: Meat, Fish, Poultry and Vegetarian, check them all out. But in this recipe, I am aiming at something else:
High Plant Protein: Black Bean Burgers!
They look and taste so much like their meaty counterparts, it will leave you scratching your head! While the flavor lineup in my black bean burgers is decidedly Latin, feel free to vary the seasonings to suit your taste. Likewise, experiment with cooked red or white beans, lentils, quinoa or kasha. Oh yeah, and just in case you decide to deconstruct the burger, take a look at my Black Bean Burritos: another perfect BBB, with all the fixin’s!
The nutritional yeast flakes will give the black bean burgers a pleasantly cheesy flavor, the vegan way. But if you decide you want real cheese, use that on top of the burger, and skip the nutritional flakes. You can also skip both all together: Just pure good old black bean burger, with your favorite toppings. We Sephardis enjoy burgers sans buns, with a whole array of Salatim. As a result, we end up with the mandated more-protein-more-veggies-less-carbs diet.
