The Chef: Benjamin Goldman
The Restaurant: Planta, Miami Beach

6 oz. mushrooms, roasted and blitzed
3 oz. black beans, blitz half

2 tsp. + 1 tbsp ground flax + water (flax “egg”)
1 tsp. thyme, picked and chopped

To taste salt and pepper
Method of Preparation:
- Dry roast mushrooms until very dry in the rational oven. Cool down and then roughly chop using a robo coupe. Set aside.
- Sauté onion and garlic in canola oil until soft and cooked through. Do not crisp onions, use low heat and a large rondo.
- Weigh beans and lentils, roughly chop half using a knife.
- Mix together flax and water, set aside until thick (like an egg).
- Combine mushrooms, beans, beets, onion/garlic, flax “egg”, and thyme. Mix thoroughly. Add flour and season with salt and pepper to taste.
