#Vegetarian Rice-and-Bean Burger

We actually put a couple of messes into the compost this week. Y’all know that’s rare for us, but some messes just don’t work out. The older Charlie gets, the less willing he is to eat my mistakes, and I’m okay with that. I never was willing.

The culprits, in these cases, were vegetables that didn’t stand well on their own. Yes, I totally could have salvaged them, but my mind is kind of on other things these days. I feel bad, now, that I tossed them, but I’m not digging them out of the compost. I’m not THAT into raccooking.

ANYWAY, I made black beans and rice, which was, as it always is, satisfying, but it made A LOT, and Charlie got tired of eating it. So I made vegetarian “burgers” out of what was left.

Just stir in an egg, a little flour, salt (if it needs it) and, if you like (I did), a heapin’ helpin’ of chipotle powder. I do love chipotle powder!

In the background, you can see the edge of a bottle of Dragon’s Milk Bourbon Barrel Imperial Stout. #4 Daughter, the amazing Sara Marian, did a mercy run and brought me some. heart heart heart

I’m posting today at Fatal Foodies about a mess over rice.

    I made dahl and rice last night so the leftover rice became friend rice tonight. I did add some crispy bits of back though. Was a low meat rather than a no meat meal but the peas, corn and capsicum did most of the heavy lifting. Is that chipotle powder like a chilli powder?

        Yum! I don’t like things too hot, but a bit of spice lifts the whole dish. I use a few flakes of dried chilli, few being the operative word. lol

    Although I love a good vegetarian dish, I think adding the egg to rice and beans and calling it a burger is a stretch. It’s more like a croquette!

    There’s a great way to use up your rice and beans! I haven’t tried that stout. It has a great name.

      Dragon’s Milk is my #1 favorite beer! My second favorite is Busted Knuckle, but I’m developing a taste for Sweet Baby Jesus! Chocolate Peanut Butter Stout.
