Really Awesome Black Bean Burgers Recipe
by J. Kenji Lopez-Alt
Serious Eats, Food Lab
updated 3/4/2019

I expected better from a recipe with this name and this description: "these black bean burgers have a complex, satisfying flavor and robustly meaty texture that even devout carnivores will love". It wasn't actually bad, I mean I have paid lots of money for worse black bean burgers from restaurants. Maybe, like an award-winning movie this one disappointed because it wasn't as good as the reviews made me anticipate.

This burger was rather dry for my taste and this was with a couple of ingredients (a touch of mayonnaise and crumbled feta cheese) specifically meant to "add richness and moisture". I (mostly) followed the instructions but that might be part of the problem. I think the beans might be in the oven too long.

The general idea seems worth playing with and it is worth trying to modify because the basic techniques do have potential for a patty that will hold up to a grill.

The recipe note says: *Porcini mushrooms add a rich meaty, nutty flavour. If you are unable to find dried porcini mushrooms, you can substitute shiitake. I used whole dried mushrooms and ground them to a powder."

Note from me: I have bought dried mushrooms at Whole Foods and also from a little Chinese grocery. They are expensive but only a couple of mushrooms adds an amazing amount of flavor to any recipe. And the dried mushrooms will last forever if kept dry in a jar.

I think you could skip the mushroom powder for this recipe. I have all the ingredients. My first seitan attempt was not a big success so I've been hesitant to try this one. I should stop procrastinating and try it.*

* Lots more time has gone by. Months. I have not made this recipe even though I still have the ingredients. It looks like a lot of work effort when I seriously doubt my seitan-making ability! Of course, I could have had veggie burgers in the freezer instead of a little plastic container of ingredients on the pantry shelf. It's not THAT much effort to make these burgers.

Thanks for the ranking of burgers. I am familiar with several. I agree with the Impossible Burger tasting better than the Beyond Burger, although I really like the Beyond Sausage Pattie breakfast sandwich that Duncan Donuts offers (nonvegan).

Thanks, too, for the Mary's Test Kitchen Burger recipe. Looks really good. I definitely want to make it. Not sure where to get the powdered mushroom, but maybe it won't be too noticeable if I leave it out.
