You won’t miss the classic, greasy burger with this Smoky Black Bean Burger recipe because it hits all the right notes when it comes to a satisfying burger! The smokiness adds the barbeque element, while the black beans and oats add a meaty texture that gives the burger some weight, not to mention a good dose of fibre and iron.
