Black bean burger
I had to defrost the freezer and was reminded I had cooked black beans that I had froze a while ago. A few hours later I had a bigger freezer and a dish for dinner.
This was a total improvisation, a very tasty one.
I blended the beans (I think I had about 1.5 cup, maybe more) with a large carrot and added 2 spoons of tahini, some spices, onion flakes and bread crumbs. Too many bread crumbs, so I added a bit of water.
I fried 2 (first photo) and baked the rest (next photo).
Usually I like frying burgers because they taste a lot better this way. I was surprised that the baked burgers tasted almost the same as the fried burgers this time.
