Spicy Black Bean Artichoke Burger

Hello Everyone! Today March 8th,2017 is International Women’s Day and I want to thank all the women in my life who have always encouraged and inspired me. You have nurtured me, taught me and evolved me into the woman, I am today.

Today I bring to you a burger that is full of power and boost, just like the women in life. This is MY FAVORITE burger. Sharing a secret, I have made this burger recipe for a week at a stretch and had it for lunch. There is something about the flavors in this burger that leaves you satisfied.
The ingredients in this burger create some great flavors when married together. I used organic black beans for this recipe and I cooked the burgers longer because I like a crispy outer layer, since I don’t eat these with a burger bun. With this recipe you don’t even need the buns.  Add it over a bed of salad or top it with avocados. It has a great texture so, you don’t need to have it with anything else . If you still want the buns go for it.

1/2 cup chopped artichokes
