Maripat's Tex-Mex Black Bean Wild Rice Burger's
Minnesota is famous for its wild rice paddys and it's fairly inexpensive locally. This meatless burger was an experiment for dinner one night Pinto beans could be substituted for the black but we think the black are better in just about everything!. The grains and beans make this a more complete protein.
When cooking wild rice, set aside 1c. for the freezer. I cook the dry beans as a matter of preference and cutting grocery costs, but have used canned beans, rinsed and drained when out of my cooked beans. This can be mixed up in the morning and then cooked for the evening meal. I haven't tried freezing them yet. We just reheat in the microwave though they're best eaten right away!Submitted by: NORTHWOODSLUNA
