These quick and easy black bean burgers are just that. Quick and easy. Fuss free.
I made them that way because I love burgers as much as the next person but I don’t have hours of time to spend putting together black bean burgers with pages of ingredients involved.
I’m thinking you’re nodding your head too at this point aren’t you, folks?
Well read on as I think that you’re just going to love these quick healthy burgers!
What you’ve got here is an amazingly easy tasty black bean burgers recipe that makes 4 delicious burgers with the very minimum of effort.
Enough to feed a family of 4.
Basic store cupboard ingredients.
Made in just over half an hour.
So where did the inspiration for this recipe come from?
Well, with just one more post on our recent trip to Hawaii and San Francisco to come next Tuesday, the visit to Alcatraz, I thought I’d start re-creating some of our favourite holiday eats to share with you folks.
Lady Lynne had black bean burgers for dinner one night whilst we were staying at the Travaasa Hana, in their Ranch Restaurant.
I had a pulled pork sandwich, something I rarely have at home as Lynne doesn’t eat pork, it was delicious. However, when I had a taste of Lynne’s burger I knew I had to try and recreate it so it could be something we could all enjoy!
Being honest folks I’ve had quite a few attempts over the last few weeks to get this recipe right.
Initially I made them too complex, then I made them to soggy, then I made them too spicy. You get the issues I was having? 😆
Finally I reminded myself, “less is more”. So I stripped the ingredients right back to the bare minimum and these quick and easy black bean burgers were born.
They taste exactly like those Lynne had at the Travaasa Hana with no sacrifice on flavour!
Not only that, they are much more healthy.
When I told a work colleague I was making these, she asked, “are black bean burgers good for you”. So I’m going to answer that question right here.
