BLACK BEAN BURGERS

by Gianna Dinuzzo

1 (15-ounce) can black beans

1 cup Italian bread crumbs

1/3 cup chopped onion

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon garlic salt

1/2 teaspoon cumin

Salt & black pepper, to taste

Drain can of beans, reserving some of the liquid from the can. Add this slightly liquified can of beans to a food processor, along with the remaining ingredients. Pulse for 2-3 minutes.

Using your hands, mold into patties.

Drizzle olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook each patty evenly on both sides, about 4-5 minutes per side, adding oil as needed to prevent sticking and burning.

Once all black bean burger patties are cooked through and evenly browned, you are all set to build your burger with your favorite condiments and toppings. Enjoy!

How to prep and enjoy a mango, the sunniest fruit in the grocery store

I adore mango in so many forms. Puree as the base of an Indian dal (lentil dish). Chutney to go on a grilled cheese sandwich. Frozen in ice cream. But fresh? I always seemed to walk by those giant crates in the grocery store. In fact, it was not until I bought, oh, a dozen or so for the purposes of this very story that I realized how much I had been...

The scoop on Swedish Candy: It’s more than fish

Candies scooped into shiny pink bags and sold by the pound are a Swedish addition to the Lower East Side. Licorice items, marshmallow-filled chocolates, cola-flavored drops and all sorts of gummies fill the little self-serve bins. It’s the work of Swedish expats and is actually the second Swedish candy store in New York (there’s Sockerbit...

Even the gelato is infused with mezcal at Claro

It makes sense for a restaurant that specializes in the food of Oaxaca to feature mezcal, the smoky agave-based spirit that dominates the region. At Claro in Brooklyn, T.J. Steele, the chef and an owner of the restaurant, also has a brand of mezcal, El Buho. He has worked with Il Laboratorio del Gelato in Manhattan to create four gelatos flavored with...

Sick of kale Caesars? Toss this together.

I used to like a kale Caesar as much as the next vegetarian. But its ubiquity has ruined it for me. Now, no matter how much I massage those leaves or make sure my dressing is nice and punchy (thank you, garlic), I find myself missing good old lettuce. I often want more from a salad, too. If meat eaters can bastardize their Caesars with chicken or shrimp...

The sweet potato: World colonizer all by itself?

Of all the plants that humanity has turned into crops, none are more puzzling than the sweet potato. Indigenous people of Central and South America grew it on farms for generations, and Europeans discovered it when Christopher Columbus arrived in the Caribbean.   In the 18th century, however, Capt. James Cook stumbled across sweet potatoes...
