Black Bean Burger, Homemade Frites/Fries

Dinner 10/9

Black Bean Burger
(recipe from Candle Cafe Cookbook, with guacamole, lettuce, red onion and ketchup)

Homemade Frites

Kudos to our son who suggested this meal tonight -- in our quest to make some space in the freezer for more pierogi, the black bean burgers (from March) were pan-fried in the cast iron skillet and topped with guacamole and other fixings. The fries/frites are the standard method of cutting the potatoes, soaking in water for 30 minutes, rinsing the starch off, then blanching in 280F oil for 6-8 minutes, then remove from the oil and let rest for 15 minutes and finally finished in 370F oil for another 2-3 minutes -- crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside.
