Meatless Mondays -- Zucchini Burgers

Meatless Monday Burgers

Serves: 4 burgers

Meatless Mondays are a great time to experiment with new recipes. These zucchini burgers are simple to make and loaded with fiber and protein. Feel free to experiment with different toppings like avocado, tomato, onion, or mango.  And serve over a bed of lettuce or on a spouted bun.

1 cup shredded Zucchini
1/4-cup onion chopped
1 cup organic, (non GMO Black Beans) rinsed and drained
4 tablespoons Ground Flax
½ t garlic powder

In a medium bowl add all ingredients
Mash together with a fork
Let it sit for a few minutes for all the flavors to blend, then form into burgers
Heat oil of choice. I like coconut. Cook till golden brown on both sides until golden on both sides

Serve and garnish
