Corn & Black Bean Burgers

Posted on

Yay! It’s Friday and I’m sure everyone has worked hard to get to this day. I know I sure have. Last night I did a long workout on the treadmill, which was dreadful while I was running it, but afterwards I felt like a champ. I talked about getting through workouts on the treadmill before and I used some of these tips yesterday. What are your ways of crushing a workout on the treadmill? Anyway, I also made these corn & black bean burgers, which are so easy to make and delicious. They are meant to be vegan, but I feel like an egg white would help to hold them together so that’s what I did. You could do a flax egg and then they truly would be vegan. Read on for the recipe…
