I returned from my “mini-vacation” with my parents on Friday, and decided to whip up a family favorite around here.
Cilantro(!) Black Bean Burgers
  • 15 oz black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 poblano pepper, roughly chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Cumin (to taste)
  • Chili powder (to taste)
Sweet Potato Fries
  • 1 sweet potato, peeled and cut into fries
  • Few sprays olive oil
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

I prepped the fries first, because I hate peeling things and wanted to get it out of the way.
Plop (a legitimate word) the sweet potato in a bowl and toss with the remaining ingredients.

Spread on a baking sheet, and really give these babies some room to get crisp.

Bake at 500 degrees for 10 minutes, flip, repeat.
On to the burgers.
Sauté the pepper and garlic in a pan with the oil.

Throw in a food processor with the cilantro and process until blended.  Add the beans and pulse a few times.
Get annoyed because the camera is low on battery. Make husband charge it quick, and then take a picture of you mixing in the remaining burger ingredients.

Fry two minutes on each side.
See: fill tiny apartment with smoke.  Again.
Serve with cheese and fries, but no ketchup.  Matthew doesn’t like ketchup. I’m pretty sure he is an alien.
