You may be tempted to pass on this recipe. Maybe you’re thinking, hey, I’ve already got all the black bean recipes I need. Some fab burritos, a quick and easy soup, and even burgers, which are basically the same as patties minus a bun, right? Well, that’s what I was thinking too. But then I saw this recipe make its way around the internets and since no one needs to twist my arm to get me to cook with beans, I decided to give it a try.
This meal was a total home run – easy, healthy, and so delicious. The avocado cream sauce really completes the dish and I especially loved the little zing from the lime juice. (Of course Andrew really loved the sauce but preferred to dip his patties rather than have the sauce drizzled over them – it’s a toddler thing.) Depending on the size of the patties, the recipe yields quite a few – I ended up with about 16. It also makes excellent leftovers. I’m sure just as with black bean burgers you could freeze the shaped, uncooked patties for a quick meal. This recipe was a good reminder that no matter how many black bean recipes I have and love, I could always use one more.
