I made them anyway and just didn't call them a black bean burger... not only did he love them, he thought I had used sausage in them! (to be fair we had picked up sausage at the store that week to try a recipe Biana mentioned.) They were so good I almost didn't want to share the second one with him.
Kristen had given me a bunch of amazing tips before I made them and I ended up combining the recipe she used and one from Skinnytaste-- which is super easy. I was a little concerned because I don't have a food processor, but I just chopped up the ingredients really small and used a potato masher to mash the beans and it worked perfectly. We eat them with lettuce on pita bread-- delicious! Feta is also good-- and extra siracha if you prefer a little spice!
I've made them probably half a dozen times and aside from how delicious they are, my favorite thing is that you can freeze half the batch (or double it) and have them later in the week. It's the perfect (and easiest) lunch or dinner recipe when you don't want to put in a ton of work to making something.

Now to totally switch subjects.... after five Rocksboxes I finally decided to cancel my subscription but I thought I would still share my last two boxes.
I switched it up to bracelets for this box and
The Perry Street yellow & blue statement necklace was really fun and I loved the shape and design of it, but it didn't seem to be very well made. A few of the stones weren't glued in very well-- not sure if they had previously fallen out and it had been repaired poorly, or if it was just not made well to begin with. Didn't wear this one either.
The Vanessa Mooney necklace was my absolute favorite though, and I'm still kind of kicking myself for not keeping it. As you can tell it's really simple with gorgeous details and it was shorter- so it fell right between my collar bones.
I was really excited to receive both a Loren Hope and House of Harlow necklace in this box-- along with another delicate Gorjana piece. I did really like the House of Harlow necklace but I didn't love that it was actually this felt like material so I could see it getting damaged really easily.
The Loren Hope necklace was really nice-- and as much as I'm loving blues right now I just didn't have very many things to wear with it so I think I only wore it once. The Gorjana necklace went with just about everything and I actually liked it better than the previous Gorjana pieces I received here and here.
Where is your favorite place to shop for jewelry? If you've subscribed to Rocksbox what do you do with all of the boxes? I'm not sure if I should just recycle or keep them for something.
