Asian Black Bean Burgers

Hi Friends!

It’s recipe time. I made these Asian Black Bean Burgers over the weekend and they were absolutely delicious. During my weekend prep, I almost always cooks a bag of black beans in my pressure cooker and freeze them to use during the week. I wanted to experiment with my usual black bean burgers and love Asian flavors so I decided to give them a shot!

I decided to serve mine on top of a big salad, with some of our favorite Newman’s Own Sesame Ginger dressing…but they would also be good on a bun.
