My husband just asked for a Veggie Burger, but we were out of the premade, frozen, ones in the freezer. It looks like it's time I make my first veggie burger as a Vegan. I have to admit, this was a little intimidating. I had never even read a recipe for veggie burgers, because the frozen ones were so convenient. Time to search the pantry and refrigerator for ideas.

I have black beans, oats, some random veggies, nutritional yeast, avocados, & my husbands favorite ingredient, sriracha. Let the games begin! I just started by slicing my veggies, smashing my beans, tasting, adjusting and experimenting. A few beers later, we had a black bean burger that was so much better than the frozen ones I had been living off lately!!
