Marinara Burger (Vegan, WFPB)

If you've known Dr. Miller and myself for any amount of time, you know we don't have to try very hard to find an excuse to make burgers! Ever since we started eating a plant based diet, vegan bean burgers have been a constant on our dinner time menu. I personally love how versatile bean burgers can be, which can been seen in action by the numerous versions of bean burger recipes I have out on my website and YouTube. Marinara bean burgers are one of my favorites to make when I have some left over easy instant pot marinara sauce after a spaghetti night. These burgers can be thrown right on the grill fresh or you can freeze the patties and have them ready to go for your next burger night.

If you go ahead and try this recipe, let me know what you think and share a picture on my Facebook page of how it turned out!
