Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Ever since I wrote the post about Boca Burgers Exposed, I have been making it a mission to create easy veggie burger recipes.  Like these black bean veggie burgers.  You can read about the Boca Burger post here.  This is a burger recipe we have been making for a long time, so I thought it was about time to get it up on the blog. These burgers provides a nice alternative that even older kids should be able to sink their jaws into.  These black bean veggie burgers would be great on whole grain bread, in a sprouted corn tortilla or served over quinoa.  The key to making this a tasty dish is the caramelized onions and the crispy outside.


This recipe makes a lot so you will be able to freeze some.  That is what we do.  These would go great with my Healthy French Fries.

This black bean and corn salad is really easy and costs almost nothing to make.  At our house, we eat lots of cold salad and this is black bean and corn salad is one we have made on occasion.

This is really versatile.  We made ours vegan with no cheese or meat, but you can most certainly add them if you wish.  We have talked about adding wild rice or quinoa to ours to make it last longer.  You could also wrap it in a tortilla or lettuce wrap.  The possibilities are endless really!
