To stick with my theme of cheap vegan eats, I've decided to feature a recipe for a homemade veggie burger using black beans as the base.
By making your own burgers, you can stretch your dollar pretty far and you can completely control the flavor. For black bean veggie burgers, the only real requirement is, well, black beans. (By the way, bean-based burgers are a great alternative for people who have a soy allergy.) After mashing the beans, you can throw in just about any spices and veggies you like to create a tasty mix for your patty. I highly recommend trying these with the onion rings that I featured a couple of days ago. Enjoy!
