Black Bean & Chickpea Vegan Chunky Burgers a.k.a. Your Veggie Burger Dream Come True!

Black Bean & Chickpea Vegan Chunky Burgers a.k.a. Your Veggie Burger Dream Come True!

These burgers are LIT.

Every week, I try to make an effort to incorporate more plant-based foods into my diet. So here’s this week’s effort & let me tell you, YO’ GIRL BROUGHT IT.

These patties are EVERYTHING you’re looking for in a vegan burger. They’re crispy, crunchy, chunky, full of flavour & spice, heart, comforting & yes, EVEN “MEATY”.

They’re full of fibre, plant-based protein, enzymes, probiotics, B12, minerals, such as magnesium + iron, antioxidants, so easy to make & SO VERSATILE! Chop ‘em up into salads, make them the star of your Buddha bowl, add them to your fave gluten-free pita, bun or sprouted bread & make the burger of your dreams topped with avocado slices & Dijon mustard or simply dip ‘em in ketchup as is!

I didn’t just load them with black beans or chickpeas. I COMBINED BOTH FOR A LETHAL COMBINATION OF PLANT-BASED PROTEIN & FIBRE! How freaking awesome is that, right? 

BTW, when you’re buying beans & any canned goods, in general, make sure to always go for the low-sodium or no salt added versions to cut back on sodium!

I also threw in some nutritional yeast & psyllium husks for B12, more protein, tons of fiber & gut health! The nutritional yeast also adds a deliciously cheesy & creamy texture & flavour to these babes, so yes, you’ll be fooled into thinking you’re eating a CHEESEBURGER (But without the cheese!).

I had one of these babes today in a vegan lunch bowl packed with tons of other veggies, kimchi & hummus & let me tell ya, IT TOOK ME TO PARADISE. I bet you want to know what that feels like too, right? SO LET’S GET RIGHT TO IT!
