Bangin' Black Bean Burger

Spice up your dinner tonight with a Bangin' Back Bean Burger! Black bean patties are a healthy substitute for ground beef and provide plenty of protein and nutrients for a post workout meal. Black beans also have high levels of flavonoids, which have antioxidant abilities, particularly anthocyanin, and contain some omega-3 fatty acids, which is considered a "good" form of cholesterol promoting heart health.

Not only is it healthy, it's flavorful!
