black bean burger and feta


Another of Tami's recipes from her upcoming cookbook - Grills Gone Vegan.

This is a Black Bean Burger. Don't think this is another of those homemade veggie bean burgers that is all mushy and really tastes homemade; nope! This one is meaty, firm, smoky and delicious.

I formed mine more in order of a big fat, meat burger - and boy, was it a mouthful! The kids were complaining a bit, but that is because they've never actually had a burger made of meat- not even a flabby, thin Mc'D's one, so this threw them for a loop.

David and I really enjoyed it, though, and the thickness was not a deterrent. This is a wonderful recipe. It is hard to imagine Tami topping her Incrediburger, but she's done it. Oh...and those buns are also a tester from her book. Very easy to make, whole wheat, Onion Buns. If bread is this easy to make, this delicious and still whole grain, why would we need to spend $5 on a package of buns?

I topped mine with my Feta Cheese. I've made this recipe before, but every time it has come out a bit firm. I made a mistake somewhere along the agar-tofu-way and they came out just like real feta! I have to figure out where I went right and get a recipe up. It was fantastic!


  1. Oh my. I'll bet that cheese was a wonderful topper.

    How incredible that your kids have never had a McDonald's burger. Congratulations to you!

  2. Wow! That looks great!! I can't wait for this book to come out.

  3. Big thick veggie burger. Wow. Can't wait for Tami's cookbook.

  4. Droolworthy. And I love homemade vegan feta. I never getta feta up with it.

  5. Yum, Feta!
    Hope you get to figure out the "error" ...

  6. Thanks everyone and thanks to Tami - I just tested and took the pic. And ate it :)
