Black beans (also called ‘turtle beans’) are very popular in vegan cuisine, and often used to make burgers. These make for a tastier burger than the often lazy supermarket ‘spicy beans’ (good now and then, but not for every meal!) They have a dark purple skin and white centre, and are sweet and creamy, when cooked. They are also a good source of nutrients, so try one or more of these burger recipes.
