Meatless Monday with Vegan 5-Ingredient Spicy Black Bean Jalapeño Burgers

Welcome to the Miratel blog for our Meatless Monday vegan recipe share. Miratel took the Meatless Monday pledge to support reducing meat consumption 15% by eliminating it one day per week to preserve the health of our planet. We consider our support of this great movement part of our CSR business strategies as it spreads awareness of the impact of our food choices on our environment.

We have featured a variety of different burgers here like the Olive and Chick Pea burger, the Chick Pea and Spinach burger, the Vegetable Samosa burger, the Pizza burger and the Spicy Buffalo Quinoa burger. We have never had a burger with only 5 ingredients that tasted this good like today’s 5-Ingredient Spicy Black Bean Jalapeño Burger. According to the chef who created this fine recipe, “These 5-ingredient spicy black bean jalapeño burgers are paired with a tahini lime sauce, healthy, tasty, and store well in the freezer. These simple burgers have a hearty, earthy flavor that’s given a spicy kick from the jalapeños that is counteracted by the creamy, tangy tahini sauce. Plus they’re quick and easy to make.” This deliciously and easy to make recipe comes courtesy of Michele Elizabeth of Two Raspberries, an incredible site with amazing recipes and mouth-watering images, via the consistently inspiring One Green Planet.
