Who wants to spend a lot of time in the kitchen when it's hot outside?
However, I still have to provide dinner for my family. With summer fun (swimming, beach, bicycling, etc.), my boys use up a ton of energy. So, my quick forays into the kitchen have to yield results that are going to fuel them up. The black bean burgers that I have featured today on The Balanced Platter, definitely fit the bill.
The recipe is a favorite of mine from my book, Welcoming Kitchen: 200 Delicious Allergen and Gluten-free Vegan Recipes. You can follow the recipe to make burgers, or make them smaller like my friend Sarah does to make appetizer-sized black bean cakes.
Stay cool my friends!
