Bringing BBQ to your table in a non traditional way, with a preview of one of the recipes in my first cookbook (Vegan Burgers and Burritos), the Down Home BBQ Burger. This vegan BBQ black bean burger is sweet, tangy and full of flavor! It is really easy to throw together. If you’re a BBQ lover, you’re going to love this one!

I worked my booty off writing and photographing this book. It was a huge accomplishment, anyone that has worked on a cookbook knows how much work it is, let alone when you are also the photographer. I can honestly say that I am SO glad I’m done and can go back to being a mom first. Ironically my husband also traveled the most he ever has during the months I was writing the book (why do things always work out this way?!), so when he was here on the weekends, it was daddy time and I often missed hanging out with the family since I was working non stop. But it’s all done now, and I can sit back and enjoy my success! Funny fact, I shot my cover at least 20 times. I was not happy with any of the cover shots until my very last one. I’m my own worst critic!
I am so excited to share this bbq black bean burger recipe with you guys today and give you a little sneak peek into what this book is all about. BBQ is a flavor that I am very picky about. I am one of those middle of the road people when it comes to my bbq sauce. I don’t like it too sweet. But I also don’t want it too tangy. I created this sauce and burger to represent that perfect middle ground flavor. The great thing is that you can always add more tang or sweetness to how you like it. There are no rules! Just make and enjoy.
