For dinner last night, Kim found a black bean burger recipe that she wanted to try.  Normally I would be hesitant to try one of these “veggie burgers.”  No, not because I love regular burgers.  It’s quite the opposite actually, as I don’t really eat red meat.  I just have never had a desire to pretend I’m eating something that I really don’t want to eat.  No turkey burgers, no veggie burgers, etc.  However, a few weeks ago Kim ordered a black bean burger from a restaurant, though I can’t recall which one.  She remarked at how good it was and offered a bite.  I decided to give it a try and was surprised at how tasty it really was.

Anyway, Kim found a recipe and she prepared the burgers while I finished painting our entryway.  The recipe says that they aren’t quite firm enough for the backyard grill, but we had no problem grilling ours.  I think she used all of the flour called for in the recipe, which actually helped to firm up the outside of the burgers.  We added some slices of cheddar cheese to ours, along with toasted wheat buns, ketchup, mustard, and pickles.  They weren’t quite as good as the burger Kim ordered a couple weeks ago, but they were still pretty good.  I’d give them a seven or eight on a scale of ten.  I’d like to keep experimenting with the recipe and adding additional things to the mix to spice it up, but it is defnitely a great starting point for some healthy food.
