These hearty burgers can easily become a dip by bypassing the dehydration and adding a bit more spice. You could also just spread it between two slices of bread to make a sub sandwhich. I originally intended to use sunflower seeds in place of almonds (mimicking Sunshine Burgers) but after realizing that I forgot to buy them, used ground almonds and they tasted just as good. The almonds helped to mellow out the strong flavor of the black beans as well, and helped with consistency. My neice said that they smelled like pizza as I was dehydrating…(always comments from the peanut gallery) ;-)
This tastes best eaten outside, in the sun, while sitting on the lawn… A delicious spring or summer treat.
