vegetarian burger with cheese

Easy Black Bean Veggie Burger

This is the perfect recipe if you want to cut back on meat. It’s so easy to make and you probably have all the ingredients already at home to make this recipe tonight for dinner.

This vegetarian burger recipe won’t make you miss ground meat at all. In fact, even though a burger is still a burger, you won’t feel as “stuffed” with this veggie burger as you would with a traditional meat burger. Plus, you can adjust the spices in this recipe as you please. We like to add a little sriracha sauce and/or BBQ sauce.
