|Black Bean Burger with Salsa on Greens|
I am swamped. Too much work, too little time.
Still, my family needs to eat. That was what motivated me to write Welcoming Kitchen: 200 Delicious Allergen and Gluten-free Vegan Recipes. I needed food that I could whip up quickly and simply that tasted good and was safe for anyone I was serving who had allergies or intolerances.
When I'm overwhelmed with deadlines, chores, and other time consumers, I pull out my little Welcoming Kitchen book and cook something from what I have in my pantry that will nourish my family.
These Black Bean Burgers fit that bill perfectly!
I shared this recipe with the Meatless Monday blog hop.
Black Bean Burgers
1 15-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup prepared salsa
1/4 cup corn kernels (either fresh or frozen and thawed)
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup cornmeal
1 teaspoon oil (olive, canola, etc.)
Mash black beans with a potato masher or fork. Mix in salsa, corn, onion, and cornmeal. Form into 4 patties.
Heat oil in a skillet. Cook burgers in hot pan, cooking 2-3 minutes per side.
