Black bean burgers | Vegetarian BBQ recipes

Black Bean Burgers from At My Table by Mary McCartney

Packed with protein and fibre, these Black Bean Burgers from Mary McCartney are delicious sandwiched between a burger bun with all the toppings – sliced pickles, tomato, onion, lettuce, Thousand Island dressing (or mayo and ketchup) and mustard. Mary’s advice is to never skimp on the toppings!
