Servings and Ingredients

Serves 2
1 (15 oz) can Hy-Vee no-salt-added black beans
¼ c. Hy-Vee plain bread crumbs

2 hamburger buns, split and lightly toasted
Fresh pico de gallo and lettuce leaves, optional

  2. Drain black beans, reserving 1/4 cup black bean liquid. Rinse and drain remaining black beans.

  5. Serve burgers on toasted buns. If desired, top with pico and lettuce leaves.
