The sprouted black beans worked well in these raw burgers -- the trick is to rinse them after the first dry spin through the vita-mix -- this takes care of most of the nasty oligosaccharides that cause intestinal gas.
The dish name comes from the fact that black beans aren't really black inside -- they're white -- and the fact that blanco y negro was a cool record label back in the day (Jesus and Mary Chain, Everything But The Girl, etc) ;)
