I hope you all had a wonderful 1st day of spring! It was a little cold and cloudy in Southeast Missouri but warm weather is coming soon! With the beautiful warm weather fast approaching, I thought it fitting to give you all an easy burger recipe. Guess what it is made out of? Black beans!
Black beans are a wonderful source of lean vegetarian protein which give our bodies the building blocks to form strong muscles and help carry out metabolic processes. Protein helps you to feel full at your meals so you feel satisfied after eating. Black beans are also a great source of fiber which is great for bowel regularity and great for heart health. You won't be able to grill these burgers unfortunately, as they tend to fall apart easily, but they are a great low-calorie and
low-fat burger option to make cheaply at home! Serve these burgers with a side salad or a vegetable medley of your choices
