One of my favorite meals to make when I’m feeling lazy is mashed pinto beans with salt and pepper. It’s tasty, nutritious, inexpensive, and all I have to do is wait for the beans to cook. Whenever I eat this, I think about how the flavor of the mashed pinto beans with salt and pepper reminds of mashed potatoes, which naturally led me to thinking pinto beans and potatoes would probably make a really good vegan veggie patty.
This isn’t the prettiest homemade veggie burger, and it certainly doesn’t look like any frozen veggie patty you’d buy at the store, but it has a great texture and flavor. Since both pinto beans and potatoes are common ingredients used in southwestern cooking, I thought a veganized chipotle mayo would be the perfect sauce to compliment this burger.
