Acid Reflux Friendly Recipe: Black Bean Burger

Acid Reflux Friendly Recipe: Black Bean Burger

Black beans are packed with protein and fibre, which makes them a very healthy addition to your diet. They are also an excellent low-calorie alternative to meat when you are in the mood for a “burger.” Tortilla chips and cilantro give this recipe a southwestern flair, which we enhanced with eggs, green pepper, and a variety of GERD friendly seasonings. When forming the patties, be sure to pack them together firmly, and chill in the fridge, so they don’t fall apart when flipped. So moist and tasty, even meat eaters will love them.
