Being vegan and gluten-free can bring about a lot of odd challenges. One is finding vegan and gluten-free black bean burgers. Yes, there are tons of black bean and plant based patties in the frozen food aisle of the grocery store. However, a lot of them have some from of wheat in them as a binder, preserve or filler. And prepackaged products are always more expensive; definitely a time saver, but more costly.
Oddly enough before being both plant-based and gluten-free. One of our go-to weekend dinners was black bean burgers on a onion roll with a giant dollop of hummus and roasted red peppers.
The first step in re-creating that easy quick weeknight meal. This gluten-free patty has great flavor, texture and super cheap.
