I hope you don’t get sick of this bean burger series because my friend Krista and I have created a list of about 20 more we have to make. I think the key to keeping them fresh here is to make a really tasty sauce to use as the condiment. The tzatziki was a big part of why the falafel burger was so successful.
We topped this one with fennel, spinach and tomatoes, which was a good combo, but feel free to add whatever makes you happy. These patties, like all the bean patties I have made come in at around 175 calories and they are full of fiber! Even Flat Paige (see below) loved them!
Bean burgers are my new found favorite meal. Last week I tried a Chipotle Black Bean burger which turned out great. This recipe might be even better. It combines the traditional flavors of Falafel with a creamy cucumber Tzatziki sauce.
As these patties are grilled, not fried, it is only 160 calories and you can jazz it up with different toppings. I used tzatziki, tomato, spinach and a shmear of hummus.
I’m looking for other bean burger recipes. If you have some let me know! Enjoy! Continue reading →
