Organic Black Beans
Probably the most common and well-known plant substitute for a high protein meal without any animal products, black beans are a must-have pantry staple. Like other legumes, such as peanuts, lentils, and peas, black beans are prized for their high protein and fiber content. They also contain iron, calcium, magnesium, copper, and zinc, all of which contribute to bone health.
And they are, of course, a crucial component in many Mexican recipes, like tacos and burritos. But that's not all that they can do! These hearty beans make a perfect base for a vegan burger patty.
Drain the liquid and blend the beans with onions, mushrooms, spices, and other veggies of your choice, then either bake or grill them until they're cooked through. After that, top them off with your preferred sauces and burger fixings. This is a no-meat burger even meat lovers can't resist.
