Black bean burger, sweet potato fries & spinach

Sweet Potatos Are The Perfect Side For This Burger.

Black bean burgers are the bomb. There are so many different ways to make them but this recipe seems simple and tasty. It is not vegan since it requires one egg white but vegans are slick, so I am sure they will have a substitute for it with no problem 🙂 This bean burger is PACKED with fiber (11 grams) and protein (21 grams) showing us all that wimpy burgers and vegetarians do not go hand in hand. This dinner will be prepared, cooked and ready to eat in about a half hour.
