20-Minute Black Bean Burgers | Better Meal Plans

Sharing is caring!

Making a vegetarian burger shouldn’t have to mean spending hours roasting vegetables, cooking beans, and forming patties. This quick and tasty recipe can have dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes. Try using half of a spare whole-grain hamburger bun in place of the bread slice. These burgers also work with any other canned bean variety, just mix and match the spices based on bean chosen. Za’atar and oregano would pair well with garbanzo beans, while a creole spice mix complements red beans. Don’t forget the toppings; pile your burger high with red onion, creamy avocado, and a juicy tomato slice.
