Black Bean Burgers

These veggie burgers are a healthy and quick dinner option. The “meat” makes for great leftovers which you can cook up for lunch the next day.

This recipe was enhanced from Fannetastic Food’s Mexican Black Bean & Spinach Burger recipe. I can’t seem to follow a recipe for the life of me. Must. Add. More. Veggies.

Enjoy.

  2. Ooh these look great! Even for us ‘meat-eaters’ we could add ground chicken or something! Saw your blog on HLB and see you’re in Tampa like me! 🙂
