Smoky Black Bean Burgers on Potato Buns



Holy smoke! is what you will say when you see this smoky black bean burger, carefully placed astride in a buntiful union with potato buns. This recipe is known for its game of tease-and-swallow with the mouth. A perfect marriage between our dear tasty burger patties and the delectable, saliva-inducing potato buns.

Highly rich in protein, this dish helps build your body: bones, tissues, skin etc. Its richness in fibre helps to reduce cardiovascular health issues and makes it a good inhibitor of cholesterols in the body. It also contains vitamin E, a great antioxidant, whilst the flaxseed enhances sexual hormones, hence, reduces infertility. It’s a match made in nutrition heaven.

Compared to wheat, potato is very helpful, either when you want to maintain weight or lose it. So what are you waiting for?
