Black Bean & Mushroom Burgers

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

This recipe is quick and easy for a no nonsense meal that can be thrown together when you don’t have much time or when you just don’t feel like cooking much at all. Basically, you can throw all the ingredients into a food processor and poof, you have a burger! Best of all, black beans are a great source of vegetarian protein, fiber and potassium. If you prefer to enjoy these burgers egg-free you can add extra flaxseeds or make a chia or flax egg to help the recipe bind together.
