bean flour, buy or DIY?
Where can I buy bean flour for low cost? Should I grind the beans myself? what about Dehydrated beans?
I made some bean patties using black refried beans and oatmeal, and looking for ways to make them w/o getting messy.
Try azure. They have a lot of beans if you can grind them. The only flour I saw was garbanzo flour.
There is free shipping if there is a contact person in your area.
What do I need to grind them? All I have is blender, will that work?
I was not sure about what you were going to make. If patties then, yes, if you cook the beans, a food processor will chop them coarsely. For a puree, I found that I have to add liquid to the cooked beans.
If you need dry bean flour, then you must grind the dry beans. A Vitamixer grain blade is powerful enough to do that. I am not sure if the regular blade is good for that.
I must try your patties!
My order just went in at azure for grain and I think I will add some beans to it too.
I made them a bit different today as in flour not oatmeal. And added some apple cider vinegar along with more seasoning. Tastes all right, no really that spicy at all. Maybe another jalapeno?
You might want to try freeze-dried bean flakes:
You could probably mix these up with your other ingredients and add water.
I've used similar freeze-dried refried bean mixes before and I can imagine they would also work to make a bean burger.
I already have some dry beans in my pantry. Simply cook and mash them, add flour with everything else.
