This recipe is so great because once you make the bean/veggie mixture you can use it for burgers or for filling for tacos and burritos. Dinner for two nights! The other bonus about this is that if you are a vegetarian and are looking for good protein options, black beans and brown rice together make a complete protein. Oh and it tastes REALLY good too so try this recipe!
Here is what you will need:
3 TB olive oil ( I use garlic olive oil)
2 cloves garlic minced
1 onion chopped
2 zucchinis diced
2 cans black beans rinsed and drained
3 cups cooked brown rice (I use 2 packs of trader joes frozen brown rice)
salt and pepper
sauté onions and garlic in oil for a couple of minutes. Add the zucchini and continue to sauté for about 5 more minutes. Add the black beans. Season with salt ,pepper and garlic salt. Cook on low for a few minutes. Add half of your brown rice. Place the mixture in the blender and mix just until everything is blended. You still want some texture in the mix. Pour back into the pan and add the rest of the rice. Mix well. Place in the fridge for an hour before forming into patties for burgers or use right away for tacos and burritos. Hope you like them as much as we do! Enjoy!
