Mrs. K's Black Bean Burgers (Un-Chained Recipe Contest)
Very Good 4.0/5
(10 ratings)

I have always liked vegetarian "burgers" as an alternative to their high fat, high sodium meat counterparts. When my co-workers and I decided to go to Chili's for lunch, I assumed that the "Guiltess Black Bean Burger" would be just that...or at least a healthy alternative. It sounded delicious, but when I looked up the nutritional content before we left the office, I was shocked to see that one burger contained 1790 mg of sodium...More than I would like to consume for an entire day!! Since I'm watching sodium content, this was clearly not a good choice and I ordered something else. I figured I could make a much more heart healthy recipe and add some avocado, one of my favorites! Here it is:

A super tasty vegan alternative to chicken, egg or tuna salad. There are endless combinations to this salad. I like to serve it in pitas or tortillas with spinach and peppers, but you can alter this recipe to suit your needs. I used vegenaise, but you can use any other suitable mayo substitute such as nayonaise or even a non-vegan mayo.

Tijuana Torta
O.K. 2.5/5
(2 ratings)

A Mexican-style torta is just like a burrito, except the “wrapper” is a hollowed-out roll instead of a tortilla. Here it’s filled with spicy mashed black beans and a quick guacamole. Take this vegetarian version to another level (and add calcium) by melting Monterey or Pepper Jack cheese onto the bean side of the sandwich. Serve with: Mexican corn or Spanish rice if you prefer. I adapted this recipe from You can use cooked shredded chicken breast in place of the beans if you prefer!
