Hey you! Snap out of it, it’s just a picture, it’s NOT real!

I know, I get it, your mouth is watering, your stomach is roaring, and your hands have suddenly developed a mind of their own as they try to reach through your computer screen to grab this delicious burger. It will be okay. But first, you’re going to have to satisfy that killer craving or you will never be the same. Ever. Make one tonight, or…..
In the meantime, let’s just try and trick your mind into thinking that you just ate one of these healthy vegan spicy black bean quinoa burgers, so that you can go on with your day. Shhhh…..let’s whisper so it doesn’t catch on.
The minute the sandwich gets close to your mouth your nose will pick up on the subtle smokiness of this delicious burger. As you bite into the crispy outer layer, and then sink your teeth into the tender center, your mouth will come alive with the flavors of spicy chili pepper, chili powder, cumin, red onion, and garlic. There is also a slight burst of freshness from the orange bell pepper and cilantro. And the textures of the creamy black beans and the crispy fried quinoa, my oh my. Add the chewy bun, the juicy tomato, the cool chopped lettuce, the savory red onion, and the spicy sriracha to the flavor party, and you will find yourself eating the crumbs.
