We suggest serving the burgers on buns with an assortment of toppings (additional veggies, avocado slices, cheese, etc.) or place a browned patty on top of a big green salad. If you follow a gluten-free diet, these burgers can easily be made gluten-free by subbing the buns and breadcrumbs.

Process until finely minced.
Add veggies to the black beans. Add remaining ingredients and mix together.
With hands or a measuring cup, shape black bean mixture into approximately 8 burgers.
