Tester Tuesday - Black Bean Sunburgers

We rarely buy prepared vegan burgers, but when we do, we buy Sunshine Burgers.  So when I saw Black Bean Sunburgers listed on Robin Robertson's test recipe list, I knew I wanted to try this one out.  I have made my share of veggie burgers at home, but never a sunburger.  We were so happy with these burgers, I had to make this twice in one week.  The kids loved them, they are quick and easy, the texture is great, and best of all, they are sturdy!  For people who have not made veggie burgers, they may not understand what a big deal this is, but believe me, it can be hard to come by.  I have several vegan burger recipes I love, but I don't think I have ever made any before which could stand up to an outdoor grill.  I didn't try the grill since we've had snow on the ground all month, but I believe these burgers are grill worthy.
Black Bean Sunburger (Robin Robertson test recipe) on whole wheat bun with Vegenaise, pickles, ketchup, and avocado.  Side of orange slices and almonds, cashews, raisins, and dried cherries.  A lovely winter lunch for my gang.
Black Bean Sunburger on a whole wheat bun with guacamole, vegan cheese (Follow Your Heart brand), Vegenaise, ketchup, and sauerkraut.  Side of apple slices and peanut butter for dipping them.  Another winning lunch for the kids.  I will try making a big batch next and freezing them.  I'll let you know how they do.

Sounds exciting! I love making homemade burgers but they fall apart so easy. I'd love to find one that holds its shape well that I could make in big batches and freeze in pre-formed patties for future use.

Oh Jacqueline, it is exciting! :-) I can't wait to make them this spring/summer.
