Black Bean Patties – Healthy Recipe

Black Bean Patties – Healthy Recipe

How amazing does this dish look?! The recipe for these black bean burgers (patties) is from OurPath’s recipe book and they couldn’t be easier to make.

Our Path is a new digital health coaching platform that helps people to build healthier lifestyle habits in a sustainable way and they even partner with the NHS which is why I’ve chosen to collaborate with them!

All of Our Path’s recipes sound amazing but I couldn’t wait to make these black bean patties as they are ideal for meat-free Monday! They provide fibre as well as plant-based protein and taste delicious served in either a wholemeal bap or with some sweet potato wedges.

Do let me know if you try these patties too!
