Black Bean Burgers

Hello Everyone, I hope your day has been well.

I know it’s not the most flattering picture but honestly it tasted so good and was full of flavour. It can be eaten inside burger baps for a meat free option or simply with a salad for a light lunch. Black beans are such a great nutritious food packed with protein, carbohydrates and fibre. Black beans have a smooth and creamy once cooked and they are a staple food in many countries which is not surprising considering how versatile they are. This recipe was inspired from @naturally.sassy over on Instagram.
