Pony poops

This is what dinner should have looked like–a hearty, healthy black bean burger.

But instead ours looked more like pony poop bordering on diarrhea. Not appetizing. 

We eat with our eyes and this was an unmitigated disaster because I didn’t drain the canned beans thoroughly enough and should have added more breadcrumbs. I had added extra liquid in the form of lime juice and Cholula to pep it up, just apparently not the right wet:dry ratio! I even tried freezing the patties to firm them up, but alas, they spread in the pan like a big steamy pile.

I hate dry black bean burgers (that really do look and taste like pony poop), so I’m not giving up and when I get it right will share beautiful pictures 😉

The frozen version. Tip: plastic wrap on runny black beans doesn’t work.
