My husband . . one lucky man! I’m not sure he would agree but if I have to say so myself, I’m a darned good wife!
Vince suggested that we have veggie burgers for dinner tonight. My first thought was . . my menu is made and I’m not changing it but then we began looking through recipes and came up with one that uses black beans and other ingredients. I had everything but the canned black beans but I had dried black beans. It’s amazing that all the food we keep here and I don’t keep many canned beans because I so prefer dried beans to storebought canned beans. I also didn’t have any hamburger buns here but knew I could make those. I came across this recipe for 45 Minute Hamburger Buns. These were amazing! The recipe says it makes 12 services but I think that should be 8 or 10. I made half the recipe and made 3 regular size buns and 3 slider buns.
That recipe is quite easy and tasty. I’m not sure how many folks make their own hamburger buns but they taste so different from the storebought mass produced buns. There may be some gourmet type buns in the stores but they’re so easy to make.
The beans went into the pressure cooker and were done in no time and the burger mixture was made up.
They almost look like meat burgers, don’t they?
Mayo on the bun and then the veggie patty . .
A few radish sprouts were added.
Grilled portobello mushrooms were next.
Lettuce from the garden, along with sliced tomatoes not from the garden yet, topped off this mini tower!
Served with Crash Hot Potatoes and grilled asparagus and that was dinner at my house tonight.
The veggie burgers were really good. If you compare them to a meat burger, it might be disappointing but if you think of a vegetable patty on a bun, they were delicious. I could only eat half of mine and I’m stuffed.
