Recipe: The BBB-LT (Black Bean Burger - Lettuce, Tomato)

This recipe features a delicious and nutritious vegan black bean burger recipe that has a bit of history. Fasting Escape used to be in-person in a house in Southern California. It was a small program and so besides supervising patients who were water-only fasting or on a modified fast, I would often prepare meals for the non-fasters. These black bean burgers were a favorite and not just for the patients. It was my favorite, too, because of how easy and quick it was to prepare (especially if I had already made beans & rice earlier). Try these next time you have a chance and let me know how you like them. They go great by themselves or you can wrap them in lettuce. They are very flavorful especially after a long enough fast since your taste buds get more sensitive after fasting. Enjoy!
