Protein Power: 6 Ways to Eat Black Beans

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.
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.
