Featured recipe from Marilu’s table * Tex-Mex burgers
These meatless burgers, from coach and cook extraordinaire SusanMikYUM, will satisfy your whole family. The flavors can be as bold as you like – and if your family is divided on that, just split the basic recipe into quarters and add one-quarter of the spicy ingredients to each burger you want to be spicy.
Serve the burgers on toasted whole-grain buns with guacamole and salsa as condiments. A “wet” vegetable side dish, like cucumbers or broccoli slaw, would make a great accompaniment.

Tex Mex Burgers
Green * Serves 4
1 16-ounce can black beans, drained (reserve liquid)
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped pepper (red for mild, jalapenos for a spicier burger)
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (use less if you do not like spicy)
2-3 Tablespoons tahini
1 cup bread crumbs (toast or dry out a couple of slices of whole-grain bread, then whiz into crumbs in a food processor)
2 Tablespoons fresh cilantro
Mash all ingredients together. If the mixture is too dry, add some of the liquid you saved when draining the beans. Fry 3 minutes on each side. Serve on toasted whole-grain buns with guacamole and salsa as condiments.
