Global Black Bean Burger

This Black Burger is only one of countless vegetarian burgers that are created to date. The history of meatless fried patties goes back to 1969 when the first recipe appeared. In the early eighties, the first commercial version hit the British market and was an immediate success. However, the term "veggie burger" long referred to a hamburger with vegetables on top.
