Plastic-Free, Oil-Free Vegan Black Bean Burgers

I love a good and quick meal, and this burger fits the bill perfectly. For a 100% plastic-free meal, buy the buns from your local bakery or bake some yourself! Homemade bread is delicious. This recipe is featured in The Happy Herbivore Cookbook.

These are my absolute favorite black bean burgers! Even my non-veggie family loves them and requests I make them for family gatherings.

I don't know what went wrong, exactly, but in the world of black bean burgers which don't hold together this was the worst. Maybe my beans were too dry? Undercooked? Sigh... It tasted good as a baked crumbled topping for a sweet potato with hummus, though.
