Southwestern Black Bean Burgers
Makes 6 patties
This is probably the fifth or sixth meatless burger recipe I’ve tried, and it’s one of my favorites. I liked the little bit of crunch that the cornmeal adds to the outside of the patties. I also enjoyed the fact that no eggs were involved…
If I told you that I had partied a little too hard last night celebrating the start of Vegan MOFO, I’d be lying. Don’t get me wrong, I’m obviously excited for it, but this was a case of karaoke bar+liquid courage=grumpy/hungover Jackie. Oh, the repercussions for having a hilarious and fun night. This is what leads me into this amazing smoothie/shake; I found myself quickly “researching” ie. googling, foods that cure hangovers and came across an article on How Stuff Works. After glancing at it and seeing bananas, I knew that I had a mission to complete and that mission was to make an amazing banana smoothie. One so thick that you’d have to eat it with a spoon!
