Another Day Another Bean Burger
This time it's pinto beans with almonds, oatmeal, dried basil, 1 yellow onion, 3 cloves of garlic and a good sized sprinkle of oatmeal all mixed up in the food processor. The formed patties are baked for 15 minute son a side at 350º. That's the secret, I've decided, to bean burgers that are crisp and creamy and hold together and feel like -- well, real burgers. For James I topped these with a few brightly flavored zucchini pickles and a layer of raclette cheese toasted under the broiler. "No compromise here," James said between bites. "You can feed me these anytime." The bean diet goes on.
