Baking is science and I don't like formulas, but cooking is art and anything goes...and the simpler the better. It's all about less time at the stove and more time at the table. With a forty year passion for food I'm excited to share what I do in the kitchen nearly every day.

Black Bean and Corn Burger

Give this veggie burger a try, unlike many I’ve had it’s loaded with flavor and holds its shape in the bun. Start by sautéing a small onion and a couple of garlic cloves until golden, about 8 minutes. Add a drained can of black beans, one and a half teaspoons of cumin powder, a half teaspoon of chili flakes, a teaspoon each of chili powder, smoked paprika and salt then continue to cook for another few minutes.

Transfer the bean mixture to a food processor and pulse until it’s mixed thoroughly, add a half a cup of panko and pulse once or twice more. Scoop the mixture into a large bowl and add another can of drained beans and a half a cup of corn. Mix well with your hands adding salt or more panko if needed. Form patties and bake at 350 for thirty minutes or pan fry in a bit of olive oil. If you’re daring you can cook them on the grill after refrigerating for at least half an hour.
