Meatless Monday: Black Bean Veggie Burger with Plantains and Avocado
I have been thinking of trying something like this for a while. I have seen modern chefs preparing steak sandwiches with plantains, and it ocurred to me to create this vegetarian Cuban flavored sandwich. I thought it was very tasty.
Black bean veggie burgers
ripe plantains, fried (mine were still a little yellow, but they worked out well)
red onion, sliced
I used the Morning Star Spicy Black Bean Burger which I thought went well with the combination and the black beans make it so Cuban.
I grilled them in a little olive oil with some onions and sprinkled on some seasoned salt.
I fried the plantains and sliced the avocado.
I toasted the buns and started layering.
