Navy Bean Bachelor BurgersPosted: April 18, 2010
The wife was out of town this weekend, leaving me to my own culinary devices. Looking through the fridge on Friday night, I found the rest of the cooked navy beans left over from the chard dish we made earlier in the week and decided to try my hand at homemade, neurotoxin-free veggie burgers.
Feeling too impatient to look up a recipe, I just sort of threw things together. I dumped the drained beans (about 3 cups) into a bowl, added a handful of nyf (from Tina’s homemade veggie sausage adventure, to be published soon), some leftover chopped red onion from the Food Inc. potluck, and two handfuls of rolled oats. With a dash of salt and pepper, I mashed everything together and left it in the fridge for about 10 minutes to firm up. After that, it was just a matter of making a couple patties and then pan-frying them.
Didn’t have any bread in the house and the weather was crappy, so I just topped them off with some leftover salsa, cilantro, and a dab of sour cream, and ate ’em with a knife and fork like a real gentleman.
