Day 21: { Turkey Black Bean Burgers with Goat Cheese}

I’m well aware that it is not barbecuing weather in Canada right now HOWEVER that shouldn’t stop you from making these awesome burgers. No need to worry they can easily be made on the stove top!

They are full of flavour and a lower calorie alternative to beef or pork burgers. The lower calories do not mean these are not as ( or more) tasty then you’re average burg. The goat cheese compliments the beans and turkey well, overall it’s dang tasty.
