That looks so good! I have most of those ingredients in the kitchen right now.

Thats awesome, Jenn! Love when that happens!

Hi– which non-stick cooking spray do you recommend? thanks!
CatherineJune 24, 2012 at 4:29 pm (11 years ago)
I usually buy Olive Oil Cooking Spray from Trader Joe’s but I barely use any since most of my pans are nonstick 🙂

I was wondering what the nutrition information (i.e. caloric value) of the black bean wrap was ? thanks ! it looks delicious!
CatherineJune 24, 2012 at 5:05 pm (11 years ago)
Hi Abbey! I don’t count calories of my recipes/meals and build them by portions/measurements of each food group instead!

looks delicious! i love how they’re wrapped!
CatherineJune 24, 2012 at 8:44 pm (11 years ago)
Thanks Caralyn! xo

This recipe looks delish!!! P.S. I adore your blog, and love your story! 🙂
CatherineJune 24, 2012 at 8:51 pm (11 years ago)
Thank you so much Sara! You are so sweet! Health & Happiness xo
JenJune 25, 2012 at 4:40 pm (11 years ago)
This looks so yummy and like I might actually be able to do this myself. Have you ever put them on a grill? Do they hold up?
CatherineJune 25, 2012 at 4:48 pm (11 years ago)
Jen they are super easy! Just combine and blend, then cook! I haven’t tried them on a grill but they are pretty mushy/liquidy before cooked so I’m not sure if that would end very well! You could try baking them or using a Forman style grill though! xo

Hi. Just found you on Pinterest this morning. You’re adorable plus your food is just the sort I enjoy. I’m a 41 year old mom (kids ages 19, 14) and wife.
I’ve discovered that I just can’t eat like my family any longer. More Rabbit Food is my new mantra!
CatherineJuly 3, 2012 at 11:18 am (11 years ago)
Awww thank you Kate! I am so happy that you found my blog! I too discovered I just cannot eat like my family and especially my 6’5 boyfriend! haha Rabbit Food Forever 🙂 Health & Happiness xo
LauraJuly 5, 2012 at 5:05 pm (11 years ago)
What would you recommend in place of avocado? I am not really a fan especial when it’s in large pieces (I don’t mind if it’s blend in something). However, I LOVE black beans so I really want to try this! Thanks!
CatherineJuly 5, 2012 at 5:54 pm (11 years ago)
Hi Laura! You could omit the avocado and enjoy some almonds or other nuts on the side to get a serving of plant based fat 🙂
LexiJuly 7, 2012 at 10:40 pm (11 years ago)
🙂 It is nice to find recipes not centered around meat! I am a mostly-vegetarian myself, and it can be hard to find protein-rich recipes that are vegetarian friendly. Thanks for the great site!
CatherineJuly 7, 2012 at 11:09 pm (11 years ago)
Aww, I’m so happy you found my blog Lexi! It sounds like my recipes will be a good match for you! xo
MaureenJuly 15, 2012 at 12:35 pm (11 years ago)
I love your blog and find myself checking up on it every day to see if there’s something new. I was wondering how you store your avocados. It’s so hard to cook just for 1, especially when they turn brown in just a few minutes exposed to the air. Hoping to get some tips, and thanks for a great blog!
CatherineJuly 16, 2012 at 10:42 am (11 years ago)
Hi Maureen! I usually place my leftover avocado (and pit) in a ziplock back in the refrigerator. Sometimes I will cup and freeze my avocados and use them in smoothies for a plant based fat serving!
AmandaSeptember 5, 2012 at 11:44 pm (11 years ago)
Catherine, I recently discovered your blog and I <3 it! I'm so impressed and really love your recipes.
I wanted to let you know that I linked to one of your pictures and this recipe on my blog: http://ampcideas.wordpress.com/2012/09/06/today-i-ate/
I hope you take it as the compliment it is!
AnnemarieSeptember 18, 2012 at 11:10 am (11 years ago)
It looks delicious! I’ll try it soon!
AlexandaJanuary 28, 2013 at 11:48 pm (10 years ago)
Hi! I just found your site a couple weeks ago and I can’t get enough of your recipes! This one especially. Although the black bean burgers seemed a little bland at first, so I decided to experiment with different sauces. And today I found the perfect fit! 1 tbsp of Garlic Expressions classic vinaigrette over the top of the black bean burger makes this recipe pop! I absolutely love it. 🙂 Just thought I’d share the love. <3
CatherineJanuary 29, 2013 at 11:18 am (10 years ago)
Love it! I will have to try that! xo
MomFebruary 26, 2013 at 12:45 pm (10 years ago)
I like this recipe a lot…i have to try it soon. Thanks for sharing. nice blog!
LibbyApril 27, 2013 at 4:13 pm (10 years ago)
Hello! I didn’t do as good as you with wrapping it together but it tasted awesome!!! I added fat-free feta cheese and grilled onion to some of them and it was a great addition. Thanks!
ConnieMay 14, 2013 at 4:05 pm (10 years ago)
This was an amazing recipe: simple but really delicious! I am trying to find amazing low carb vegetarian recipes, and this is the best one yet. My husband (a meat eater) raved how good this was and said it was better than most restaurants. We added a dollop of dill dip on it, and that put it over the top. Thanks so much for this recipe!
KarenOctober 1, 2013 at 8:39 pm (9 years ago)
Super delish! This is a keeper as my hubby loves it too.
