I have been eyeing to make multi
bean burger patties for a long time. Having experimented with beetroot ,potato
patty varieties, this vegan 3-bean burger came about as a dinner experiment (albeit at the
last hour when kiddo wanted to have something different for her dinner). So, I
had to use what was on hand, and we liked it a lot. Go on, make your own combo
– the protein filled patty is sure to be filling and healthy..
