Black Bean Burger With Sun Dried Tomatoes, Basil & Goat Cheese
I really like veggie burgers, but I have to admit I prefer to make my own. I get the occasional Falafel when I am in the city, but at home it’s black bean burgers for me. I like to switch them up with different flavor profiles and this time it was with basil, sun dried tomatoes and a smear of creamy goat cheese. Yummy…

Cook on medium until the water is evaporated, then with a fork or masher, mash the black beans until most of them are mashed but a few stay chunky.

  1. Looks good, I’m going to give this a try tonight. We grew and dried some nice butter beans this year and I’ve been looking for some ideas of what to do with them. Maybe I can use them in this instead of the black beans.
