The Ultimate Black Bean Burger

There is a little food co-op in Tallahassee we like to frequent. It's called New Leaf Market and they have some great local fruits and vegetables, loose stocked grains and flours and so many healthy food items.

They also have a kitchen and food bar and let me tell you, they make one of the best black burgers I have ever had. They have spinach lasagna and quiche on the hot bar - and I honestly want to try those one day - but we get to the counter to order and that black burger calls my name.


They are handmade rather than the frozen textured vegetable protein type burgers. Very lush and filling. Soon I want to make my own and have found several good recipes in the Linda McCartney cook book and also one by Heidi Swanson. Stay tuned for those experiments.

I will be joining Deb at Kahakai Kitchen for her Souper Sunday series. Please join in with your soup, slaad or sandwich - the linkup for this week may be found HERE

No meat??

I've never had a black bean burger and normally I'm deeply suspicious of non-meat burgers but this sounds amazing! If we're ever in Tallahassee I'll definitely have to check this place out. I love mixing a little healthy stuff into all the usual out to eat stuff.

Nan, Nope, absolutely no animal product except the slice of cheese. It was super good.

Katherine, It's not a textured vegetable protein or something shaped like meat with that texture. It's a mixture of black beans and most likely some quinoa or breadcrumbs.

Black Bean burgers are very good! Can't wait to see you post the recipe you make.

Love to make my own veggie black bean burgers too! So much more tasty that way don't you think

Tina said...

I'm looking forward to it, Vicki, see if mine will adhere together as well as these.

Deborah, I may be borrowing your recipe!
