I was combing through my phone’s notes app and came across a veggie burger recipe I cobbled together one day. Its meant to mimic the veggie at Chubby’s diner except with flavors and seasoning. This is what happens to you when your whole writing system depends on note taking, firing out dozens of rough drafts on different poems, and then letting them sit until you can look at them with out creation blinders on. It’s a mess, but sometimes there is food.
Here’s a veggie burger recipe.
- 2 cans black beans
- 1 can (hot or mild) rotel
- 1 cup of cooked rice
- 1 cup of breadcrumbs/ crushed tortilla chips
- 1 egg
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 1/2 an onion minced
- Chili powder (to taste)
- Cumin (to taste)
- Siraracha (to taste)
Drain and smash the beans in a large bowl until they are paste like. Add rotel, garlic, onion, breadcrumbs, and rice to the bowl. Mix them into the paste.
Mix egg, sirarcha, chili powder, and cumin together in another bowl. Add to bean paste mixture and stir until it is brought together.
Form patties from mixture and place in a 375* oven for 15 minutes on a greased pan. Flip patties and bake until they are sturdy enough to move with out breaking. (It took me about another 5-10 minutes of baking)
Let cool and store in the freezer. Fry up in a pan in your fav hi-temp cooking fat.
Serve em up!
