The Best Black Bean Burger
This black bean burger recipe is the best - I think you'll love it! It's full of good stuff - black beans, feta cheese, bell pepper, onion, garlic, and panko bread crumbs. The initial roasting of the black beans make these burgers hold together better - so you can either make them in a pan on the stove or on the grill.
There's obviously loads of topping options for these - you could throw on a bunch of avocados or get crazy and add sweet Thai chili sauce. I went the OG route and did tomato, pickle, red onion, and lettuce - and then topped it with a chipotle mayo. It's delicious whichever toppings you go for.
I've been testing this recipe for awhile. I wanted to share a veggie burger that could be ready in under 30 minutes. Sadly, I just don't think the quicker recipes taste as good or hold together as well as this 45-minute recipe. Much of this is hands-off time though!
I found this recipe pretty easy to make - it may seem like a bunch of steps below, but give it a go - I think you'll find it's worth it. I hope you enjoy this delicious black bean burger as much as I do!
