Grilling season is here! That means my freezer is stocked with MorningStar Farms® spicy black bean burgers. It’s been one of my favorite veggie burgers for years! They’re delicious on the grill, baked in the oven, or cooked on the stovetop. They’re even delicious cooked in a toaster oven! I love that one of these burgers contains 9g of protein.

While these burgers have a great flavor on their own, I wanted to share a few different sauces to spice up your black bean burger. Each of these sauces is quick and simple to make, but it’s a fun way to change up your menu!

These sauces are a fun way to step up your burger game! I also love topping my burger with lettuce, tomato, and red onion. We just planted a vegetable garden, so I can’t wait until I’m topping my black bean burgers with a homegrown tomato!
