Black Bean Burgers

Tasty, although the texture can be a bit off-putting if you’ve never had a bean burger. You have to remember you’re not biting into ground beef; the texture is more mushy, like a bean dip, inside. The flavor is wonderful; the cilantro really makes it.  This recipe is adapted from The Happy Herbivore cookbook.  Pictured with Indian-spiced yam fries and “cheesy” cauliflower bites.
