Pinot Noir and Tempranillo are great choices for Bean Burger. Since veggie burgers are usually lean, you'll want low to medium tannin wines. Pinot noir is a great choice. Another option is Spanish tempranillo, which pairs nicely with the earthy flavors you might have from beans, lentils, mushrooms, etc. You could try Rex Hill Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.6 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 29 dollars per bottle.

Rex Hill Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

Aromas of violets, iris, ripe raspberries, dark cherries, rose, blueberries, wild strawberries and wet stones all emerge from the glass when the wine is first poured. As the wine opens, more savory aromas of wood smoke, cured tobacco, earth, sandalwood and cinnamon add complexity to the original aromatics. Structured, ripe and pure, the wine shows all hallmarks of the 2013 vintage.

Instructions

Add a swirl of olive oil to a skillet and add diced mushrooms and onions. Saute until softened then season with salt and pepper. Add drained black beans to a medium bowl and press and mash with a fork. Mix in mushrooms and onions then add egg and bread crumbs. Finally mix in cumin and chipotle chili powder. Roll and form into burger patties (sliders or full size). Form a indent in the center of each burger Add a spoonful of cream cheese spread to the indent in the burgers and then form the burger over the cream cheese. Heat a skillet over medium heat, add a swirl of olive oil. Add 2 burgers at a time and sear on each side until cooked and browned, about 4 minutes each side. If you want to add sliced cheese on top, add now and cover skillet to steam and melt cheese. Remove to a plate, then cook remaining patties. For the avocado creme, combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender, and mix until smooth. Taste and add more sour cream or lime juice if needed. To plate, add each hot cooked burger to an open toasted bun. Top with lettuce and tomato (optional) and a hearty scoop of avocado creme and then top with bun.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

  • If you're following a gluten-free diet, be sure to find a brand of gluten-free panko.

  • You have probably heard by now that whole wheat bread is better for you than white bread. While this is true and definitely worth considering, you should be aware that all bread (especially your typical supermarket loaves) will raise your blood sugar and should be eaten in moderation.

  • Sea salt is not healthier than table salt, contrary to what you may have heard. Sea salt is usually 97.5% sodium chloride (same as regular old table salt) and the minerals accounting for the rest are too insignificant to make a difference?unless you plan on consuming sea salt by the pound, in which case the health benefits from the minerals will definitely be outweighed by the negative effects of all the sodium you are consuming!

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

  • Sea salt can add a unique texture or provide bursts of salty goodness, but ONLY when it isn't being dissolved. So if you have expensive sea salt, save it for sprinkling on salads or dark chocolate cookies, don't try to use it in your pasta sauce or soup. Once sea salt dissolves, the flavor is indistinguishable from table salt from the shaker (after all, they are chemically the same thing, sodium chloride).

  • Avocados are one of the "clean fifteen", so you don't have to buy them organic if you don't want to spend the extra dough.

Cooking Tips

  • The average fresh lime contains 2 tablespoons of lime juice (just in case you are substituting bottled lime juice).

  • Confused by the different types of cream — Most differences arise from the fat content of the cream, and whether or not the cream has been "soured" by adding lactic acid bacteria to give it a tangy flavor.

  • If you're buying an avocado to use for dinner tonight, make sure you choose a ripe one! Find an avocado that is soft enough to press your fingertips into. If it's too firm, it's not ripe. If it's almost smooshy, it's too ripe. The perfect avocado can be hard to find in stores, so you might have to buy your avocados in advance and ripen them at home. To speed up the ripening process, put the avocados in a paper bag with an apple or banana. It really works!

  • You might have heard that you should never wash mushrooms. Before you spend your precious time wiping down mushroom after mushroom with a towel, you should probably know that this is mostly a myth. While mushrooms can absorb a little water if you soak them long enough, the amount absorbed from a quick wash is not going to have much of an impact on your dish.

Green Tips

  • Good news for mushroom lovers: according to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), mushrooms are pretty "clean" when it comes to pesticide residue, so you do not have to splurge on extra-expensive organic mushrooms (unless you want to!)
