I wish black beans were easier to get here. I was going to use tinned beans for these burgers but the supermarket didn’t have any. That almost meant a change of plan but luckily I found the ends of a packet of dried black beans in a cupboard at home. Now, that’s probably a good thing and because I knew the day before that I was going to make these burgers, it was easy to just put the beans to soak. Normally meals with beans tend to be things I make when I haven’t done any planning and so having a bag of dried beans in the cupboard is no help at all. Not to mention the fact that I then forget I have them!
