Easy Bean Burgers

Easy Bean Burgers


These easy to make bean burgers can be made without a food processor! I've even gone as far as to use my hands to mash the beans, but you can of course use a potato masher if you don't want to get into the mix. 


Recipe notes:

These burgers are soy free! 

Feel free to switch up the type of beans you use! In terms of macronutrient breakdowns most beans have a very similar profile.

These are great for meal prep and can definitely be frozen. Just make the batter, form into patties, and place a slice of parchment paper between each patty and freeze!
