Vegan Black Bean Avocado Burger: Organic, Gluten-Free

Spread the love

This delicious vegan black bean burger recipe with avocado is not only delicious, it’s stacked. Literally packed to the buns with essential nutrients, gut-healthy fiber, and over 15 grams of plant-based protein that’ll fill you up.

I’m a huge fan of vegan burgers of all varieties, and especially packed with protein, fiber, veggies, and a creamy rich sauce. It’s one of the best ways ever to stack the nutrients in juicy tomatoes, onions, pickles, avocados, boatloads of microgreens and sprouts.

Not to mention black beans, which are literally loaded with prebiotics, and that’s in addition to wild rice, nutritional yeast, organic veggies, and heart-healthy oats.

The best part is you can bulk-bake and freeze these beauties for tons of delicious recipes, like vegan loaves, casseroles, tacos, burritos, rich veggie patties with mashed potatoes and gravy.

It’s also pretty cool how they fill you up, and especially with a decadent pile of homemade French fries.

This recipe is organic, vegan, and gluten-free.

Black bean burgers are a high-fiber, high-protein, nutrient-dense food that rock with vegan potato salad, homemade fries, chips and dip, macaroni salad, on and on.

But what really makes them superstars are the beans. In fact according to one report, black beans are the healthiest ever with the highest number of antioxidants.

How to Make a Chia Egg

To make one chia egg mix 1 tablespoon of ground or soaked whole organic chia seed with 3 tablespoons of filtered water, wait for 10 minutes, mix again, then use.

Vegan egg substitutes are widely available, but chia is healthiest. It’s a complete vegan protein with all nine essential amino acids and more.
