The Secret

by Meghann on June 14, 2011

I learned something new tonight:

The secret to making ‘meaty’ black beans burgers is adding a heaping tablespoon of Worcestershire Sauce.

Of course, that means the burgers are technically no longer considered vegetarian (worcestershire sauce contains anchovies), but it sure makes them taste good. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I, also, learned that no two batches of bean burgers I make are ever the same. They basically end up being what ever I have on hand and end up throwing in the food processor.

Tonight’s burgers had

  • 1 can of Black Beans
  • Mushrooms
  • Onion
  • Ground Flax
  • Rolled Oats
  • Adobe Spices
  • S&P
  • Worcestershire Sauce

The mix was blended and left to sit for 30 minutes. My plan was for the oats to soak up a bit of the moisture in that time, but, unfortunately, it didn’t work. The mix was still extra runny and sticky by the time I was ready to cook it.

Instead of attempting to thicken the burger dough up, I just made do with what I had and ended up with hot mushed beans on the stove top. It was a crazy, sticky mess, but at least it tasted good. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I paired the burger attempt with an Anrold’s Thin, spinach and a little ketchup.

My hands are still up in the air about the belly button ring. I think I’m going to check out some stores tomorrow for a new one and if I don’t see anything I like, then I’ll take that as a time it’s time to say good bye.

I was happy to hear so many ladies are still out there rocking the belly ring after their twenties! You go girls! ๐Ÿ™‚

Sit down. I’m afraid I have some bad news for you. Are you ready for it? Here it goes…. I don’t have photos of my lunch. I know, I know – I’m a terrible blogger. I grabbed the wrong SD card on my way out the door and didn’t even think about it until I more ยป
