Black Bean MushiesYea! I can add a post! I think Blogger/Google have fixed up a few kinks so that the old and new bloggers can live together happily...
I finally made a cookalong recipe, after a few weeks of a hiatus. We made the Black Bean Patties last night and for the most part they were good. I was a bit hesitant about the 1/4 apple sauce until i realized that was for 8 portions. So i halved the recipe, and still came away with 7 large parties. Thank goodness i halved it or i'd be eating black bean mush for weeks!
I had to make some substitutions because i didn't have everything on the recipe. For instance, instead of cilantro (which i love but J hates), i used fresh dill. It added a lovely touch - made me feel like i was eating a burger in the summer. And i subbed chili powder for the jalepeno peppers. I also couldn't find buns at the corner store so i bought toast bread.
The patties were quite wet but they did fry up nicely. J thought the texture was just a bit too weird. While the cornmeal helped, his verdict was that it was all just a bit too mushy. And i agree. We added a nice fresh salad and chips/tortillas to the meal.
We're both having some today for lunch so i hope it works out okay!
