I continue my journey with MorningStar Farms this week by presenting you my own version of a delicious black bean burger for all your grilling pleasure.
This weekend, June 22nd-23rd, MorningStar Farms is making a stop at the Manayunk Arts Festival and serving their own spin of Chef Mitch Prensky’s veggie burger slider as part of their “Feel Good Grilling” Tour. They have hit the open road to show America what feel-good grilling is all about and to serve up delicious, better-for-you burgers.
Who is Chef Mitch Prensky? He owns the restaurant called Supper which serves seasonal farm-direct American cuisine located in the Bella Vista neighborhood of Philadelphia. I cannot to know about the restaurant as I will be visiting on Thursday. 🙂
MorningStar wants to see how you get your grilling on by posting your pictures of veggie goodness on Instagram and Twitter.
Here is my recipe of a veggie burger with my own twist. This recipe can be used with the Spicy Black Bean patty or the Mediterranean Chickpea Patty. Here is what this baby looks like because you will definitely want more than ONE burger.

Ingredients (4 burgers)

In a large non-stick skillet, heat olive oil on medium heat. Add peppers and saute for 5-7 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high and add onions and fry mixture for 10 minutes until peppers appear blackened. Add minced garlic and remove from stove. Add pepper mixture to a food processor and pulse. Place blended pepper mixture and stir in the crumbled feta, kosher salt and black pepper to taste.
Grill thawed black bean patties on non-stick pan with 2 Tablespoons oil and cook for 5 minutes on one side and flip. Cook on the opposite side for another 5 minutes.
Toast hamburger buns on skillet.
Place black bean patty on bottom of hamburger. Add 2 Tablespoons of pepper spread and add one slice of tomato and fresh lettuce.
I enjoyed one without fresh veggies and one with and they were both delicious.
