Black Bean Burger

When we visit family in Oregon there is a special little garden to table restaurant where we have the most delicious Veggie Burgers.  I am on an ongoing search for great veggie and bean burgers, we really love them.  This Black Bean Burger is as close to my perfect Veggie Burger as we have found so far, it is fantastic and I was very excited to share it with all of you.
