Meatless Memorial Day

I can hear the gasps already at just the mere thought of a meatless Memorial Day. It’s almost an American tradition to celebrate holidays with meat it seems. But, I don’t think there is anything wrong with going out and grilling a nice big, juicy, black bean burger with some healthy veggie sides! They are way delicious.

I actually made black bean burgers a couple of days ago to make sure they were good, with this recipe from Sarah at Gazing In. I’m absolutely amazed at how delicious these are. They of course, taste nothing like meat, but are packed with so much flavor and are so juicy that you should forget about whatever you think black beans are supposed to taste like and just try this recipe.

I followed the modification to add the flour in slowly to make sure the consistency was good. I also added about 1/2 teaspoon of cumin for some kick, and a little extra chili powder for a bit more heat.

If you’re thinking about what to top these with, really, any of your favorite burger toppings will be good. I used hummus, sun-dried tomatoes, a dab of ketchup, and some fresh sliced baby bok choy.

Looking for some sides to this yummy burger? Try some of these healthy veggie ones!

Have a safe and delicious Memorial Day everyone!
