PLANTAINS AND PECAN FRIED WILD RICE

Today I Made:
PLANTAINS, MIXED GREEN SALAD, SOUTHWESTERN BLACK BEAN PATTIES WITH CHIPOTLE VEGENAISE, AND LEFTOVER PECAN FRIED WILD RICE for DINNER.

This dinner was made up of all cravings.

Husband was craving plantains, so I sauteed some in a little olive oil, salt and pepper.

I was craving the SOUTHWEST PINTO BEAN BURGERS WITH CHIPOTLE SAUCE, but I didn't have any pinto beans, so I used black beans instead.
This time, I forgot to add the Egg Replacer and I ended up adding more breadcrumbs which I think might have dried out the patties a little too much.
Also, no buns tonight.

And of course we also had leftover fried rice from last nights dinner.

Everything was great and best of all, my husband really enjoyed it.

Ha! I'm so glad you made those Burgers without the egg replacer as this is what I intend to do when I make them.
I'm not a fan of egg replacer at all. I guess mashing the Beans makes the mixture quite wet and bindable as it is...I shall have to play!
That meal looks perfect!

Those frozen plaintains from Goya are so easy and good!
