Black Bean Burger

Health expert Candice Rosen, author of The Pancreatic Oath, shares this vegan black bean burger recipe. She says, “It is a healthy, high-fiber, high-protein meat alternative that does not contain soy. Making your own ‘processed’ foods and freezing ahead is also key to living a healthier lifestyle. It is more cost effective and flavorful than pre-made veggie burgers. Plus, it’s easier on digestion.”
