Who needs MorningStar when you can make your own Blackbean Burger!

After my morning run, I didn't know what to make for lunch. I had not done any grocery shopping. I saw I had a can of black beans and whole wheat bread. I love the morning star black bean burgers, but thought to make my own! I was very happy with the results! Here's the recipe:

Garlic powder
1 can black beans
Ground cumin
Half of a lemon
Salt & pepper
Israeli couscous
Baby spinacch
Cheddar cheese
Optional (avocados, cucumbers)

Boil couscous for 10-15 minutes. Drain excess water and let sit aside for a few minutes.

Meanwhile, drain excess water from the can of black beans and empty the black beans in a mixing bowl.

Add ground cumin (1/2 teaspoon), garlic powder (1/2- 1 teaspoon), paprika, salt and pepper to preferred taste.

Squeeze half a lemon.

Add the couscous prepared earlier to the mix and mash.

In a skillet, add olive oil and grill the burgers. Flip after 5 minutes on medium heat.
