You'll never have settle for a bland burger again.

How many times have you seen a black bean burger as the lone vegetarian option on a lunch menu? Of course, black beans are a great source of protein and fiber. But, after a while, they all start to taste the same. That’s why these Black Bean Superfood Burgers put a unique spin on traditional black bean burgers. To make it stand out, we’ve added beets and quinoa, which pack extra superfood goodness! Flavorful spices make it oh so delicious, while the beets turn the patties a vibrant red color. Try this recipe so you’ll never have settle for a bland burger again.

They’re great served on a wheat bun with a side of Sweet Potato Chips, or even atop a salad such as this Superfood Salad.
