  1. these are delicious… When I cooked the dried black beans, I added a cup of black rice and cooked them together and then added the remaining ingredients. I didn’t use them with bread (as in a burger) but made patties and had them with boiled potatoes and cauliflower.. I will definitely be making these again.
