Black Bean Salsa Burgers

It’s burger season, my friends! If you’re getting bored with the usual beef patties or if you’re avoiding red meat (or meat in general) you’re going to love these Black Bean Salsa Burgers. These are delicious. Hard stop. No need for further explanation, but I will just say that the meat-eaters and vegetarians in the office both loved these.

I made these burgers with a simple mixture of mashed black beans, gluten-free panko breadcrumbs, an egg, some seasonings, and Xochitl’s tasty Stone Ground Salsa. I topped these with cilantro microgreens and avocado with mayo on the GF burger buns. These are so flavorful, have a good dose of protein, and they’re a really nice change of pace from a traditional burger.

Plus, these can also be cooked on the grill if you’re doing your cooking outdoors this summer.
