These cheap little legumes are high in fiber and a good source of plant-based protein—so why aren’t you eating more of them? We’ve got six ways to add them to your diet.
4. Grill a Black Bean Burger
Forget the processed veggie burgers in the frozen food aisle, because making your very own black bean burgers is a cinch. In a food processor or blender, pulse half a chopped onion and 1 tablespoon of chopped garlic until finely grated. Add in a can of black beans, 2 tablespoons of fresh cilantro, 2 teaspoons of fresh parsley, 1 egg, and a dash of red pepper flakes and pulse until combined. Put the mixture into a bowl and add a second can of black beans, ½ cup of breadcrumbs, salt and pepper; mix. Form patties and cook over an oiled grill for 6 minutes on each side, or bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes on each side.
