Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Black Bean Veggie Burgers

I do love me a veggie burger but some are loaded with soy and other ingredients that I just do not like.  There is a brand called Hilary’s that I do enjoy that has readable ingredients and come in a few flavors that are soy free and dairy free.  But sometimes I just like to make my own and this way I have a batch to eat for lunch or can freeze for later eating!

I came across this recipe from and it was different from others that I have seen.  The ingredient list had a bunch of superfoods that I would of never thought to add to a veggie burger like hemp seeds and pumpkin seeds!  I was intrigued! Needless to say they turned out great and oh so delicious!!  I thoroughly enjoyed my lunch this past week as I paired the burger with mixed veggies and a little goat cheese sprinkled on top. mmmmm good!

Ingredients Ready to go! 

Other topping that are good to try are avocado, sliced tomatoes, mustard or plain yogurt.  Check out the recipe and share if you give them a try!
