Double or triple the recipe for a great potluck party side dish. On busy weeknights, it’s also wonderful to have on hand in the fridge.

Double or triple the batch of these bean burgers and freeze them for easy lunches, dinners, and snacks in the future. When you’re enjoying bean burgers, you’re not only saving yourself from the plaque-building saturated fat of regular hamburgers, you’re also improving your heart health because beans, all beans, are rich in soluble fiber, which actively lowers blood cholesterol.
This simple salsa is fabulous not only as a dip or condiment for Mexican-style foods but also as a snappy topping for grilled fish, chicken breast, egg-white omelettes, or green salads.
