It feels like everyone is really stepping up there burger game these days. In the past week alone I have seen drool-worthy recipes for teriyaki pineapple burgers, blue cheese buffalo turkey burgers, spicy Thai shrimp burgers, and more. With summer in full swing, it’s just so easy to get excited about burgers. But often, at least in my house (sorry veggie friends!), I usually don’t focus on making a delicious vegetarian option. I make a delicious meat based burger and then (gasp!) grab my favorite frozen veggie burgers and cross my fingers the toppings will make it magical. But this time, I decided to step up my game with the veggie burgers. These simple black bean burgers are packed with flavor and made even more delicious with the addition of this roasted red pepper goat cheese spread. Yum.
