Black bean burgers with the best burger sauce recipe

Vegan, gluten-free, wheat-free, quick & easy

I am so happy to share with you the best vegan burger recipe...EVER!

This burger along with homemade burger sauce is 'out of this world' good. They're delicious!!!

The burger is made using black beans. Black beans are amazing in protein, fibre and antioxidants.

I made the best burger sauce I've ever had. It reminds me of the sauce I enjoyed at in London.
The sauce is thick, creamy and mildly spiced. It's scrumptious along with this burger.
These burgers are quick & easy to make and would make a perfect lunch or dinner option, everyone will enjoy!

I served my burgers in a whole grain burger bun, with fresh spinach leaves, fresh tomato slices, freshly sliced onion rings and burger sauce. YUM! 

Best enjoyed fresh, day of making.

Store the sauce in a sealed container in the fridge.

  1. Can you freeze these burgers?

  2. Probably a really stupid question but when do you add the chia mix? Thanks Sarah xx
