Black Bean Burgers


These black bean burgers are perfect to put on an actual burger, to dip in some sauce and eat on their own, or to top a salad with. The picture avocado cream sauce is just 1 avocado, the juice of 1 lime, and 2 Tbsp of hot sauce (I used Trader Joe's Green Dragon sauce) blended together until smooth. Enjoy!
