White Bean Burgers

Everyone’s got a version of a black bean burger. I mean, don’t get me wrong, black beans are fine. I’m not mad at them, you shouldn’t be either. Those little buggers are packed with tons of nutrients. But, don’t lie. Aren’t you a little sick of them? Don’t you want to step up your bean burger game? I know I sure did!

To be honest, white beans are on my Mount Rushmore of plant-based proteins. They are soft and don’t have a thick skin to get in the way of things. They take on other flavors extremely well, which is super important in creating a bean burger. So I figured, why not give it a shot? Why not try to develop a white bean burger? Well, folks, here it is!
