yikes, that’s a mouthful.
This really is the best part about the CSA- the opportunity to make bizarre meals. My inspiration actually came from this blog, where there was a recipe for garlic scape and kale hummus. I figured since I had garlic scapes and kale, but no chickpeas, I could make a black bean hummus. I also have more kohlrabi than I know what to do with, so obviously I wanted to add that, too. After I got everything in the food processor it dawned on me that I should just add some cornmeal, too, and make burgers!
Last night I topped the burgers with plain yogurt and chipotle chili powder.
Tonight I added my caliente goat cheese and a fried egg….DELICIOUS
I definitely like the black bean burgers best with cheese and egg.
If I were my roommate, I would probably like this with olive tapenade.
