Black Bean Burgers

Black Bean and rice make healthy great tasting burgers.  If you are a Gluten Free Vegan looking for a hearty protein, this recipe for Black Bean Burger should work for you!

Laurie Chamberlain, author of this recipe, worked on this recipe for quite some time before coming up with the finished product.  And I love her disclaimer:  “These are delicious black bean and rice burgers. They are not intended to taste like a beef burgers nor do they. If you make these burger and they come out tasting like spiced black beans and rice….you have succeeded!! Enjoy.”
