Black Bean Burgers


black bean burger

When I first found out I would need to start making healthier foods in support of a new relationship, I’ll admit I was not super excited. More vegetables, less red meat and no fat did not sound appetizing at all.

Growing up we ate a lot of vegetables, fish, poultry and I did not like it. Flash forward 20 years and I’ve learned my taste palate has changed. The new recipes I have been trying have been flavorable and are quickly replacing my old fat filled recipes.

This is one of those recipes. I never knew I could love a black bean burger as much as a hamburger, but I do. I found this recipe from Picky Palate’s newest cookbook, Picky Palate Cookbook. This cookbook is a must if you love healthy and delicious recipes.

I did not alter this recipe except for the guacamole part, I have my own recipe for that. I also, made it one time with just fresh avocado on it. It was good, but it’s better with guacamole.

So, give this a try and let me know what you think!
