The Bean Burgers You'll Want to Stock Your Freezer With
Making your own veggie burgers is surprisingly easy—and they're so tasty, you may want to make a double batch and freeze half. You simply combine flour, tomato, onion, garlic, some herbs and spices (they lend a Southwestern flavor) and canned black beans in a food processor and pulse until they're coarsely chopped; then stir in more beans and form the mixture into patties. (At this point, you can freeze any burgers for later.) Brown the patties in a skillet with some olive oil, and serve on buns with the fixings of your choice, from mustard to lettuce to avocado, or even salsa, for a supertasty take on homemade fast food.
