I wanted to first just apologize, I know it can be irritating to get constant updates from the same source and I completely understand if you need to unsubscribe for the month.
I just ask that you to subscribe back when this month is over as I return to more spread out posts and new updates.
I’m working on a very exciting project that I want to share with all my foodies and home cooks! I’m planning to have everything done by the end of March. I’m also working on food and cooking videos so that you can actually see exactly what I’m doing when I put together these recipes.
The videos will include the basics of how to do a roux, picking fruits and vegetables, and a video with my husband discussing food safety, storage and when to throw what away in the kitchen. He’s trained and certified through the National Registry of Food Safety Professionals so it’s some good info that you can trust!
For this 17th day of my month-long posts I’m bringing you a black bean burger without the burger. When I first made these my husband didn’t realize there was no meat until half-way through eating I gently broke the news, it didn’t faze him because it’s just that good.
On the other hand my son who is an avid bean protester had a few words, let me give you a play by-play of the conversation between son and mom!
SON: Mom did you put beans in this burger?
MOM: Why do you ask baby?
SON: Because there is a bean in my burger (while pointing at what looks like a bean in a burger)
MOM: Well actually… there is no burger in your beans.
MOM: Laughing Hysterically
SON: Shrugs shoulders and continues to eat.
The “continues to eat” part is the proof that these burgers were delicious enough to not even miss the meat. My son is a talker, a debater, a wannabe preacher, teacher, boss! So the fact that he shut his mouth and continued to eat gave me the assurance that these burgers were kid tested and approved.
Here’s the recipe for you and your family to enjoy. This recipe yields about 10 burgers. Feel free to divide the recipe in half.
