Black Bean Burger recipe
While we often buy the the frozen veggie burgers, the best one I have tried is the Black Bean Burger from Phat Bites here in Nashville. So, I went on a search for a black bean burger recipe that looked similar to their’s. What I ending up doing was combining two recipes together and came up with a recipe of my own that is really great and very close to the one at Phat Bites. (I think they also have shredded carrots in their recipe but I didn’t include it) Tastes best with some garlic hummus on top instead of cheese.
