If you’re looking for a game-changing veggie burger recipe to wow your guests this July 4th — look no further. Beans are usually a go-to substitute for meat in tacos and chilis, but they’re also versatile enough to make into out-of-this-world veggie burgers.

Ree Drummond’s Black Bean Burgers (pictured above), featured in Food Network Magazine, are easy to assemble and packed with flavor. They're a delicious substitute for beef that doesn't skimp on the classic burger texture; Ree mixes the mashed beans with seasoned breadcrumbs, onion and chili powder for a flavorful punch, and cooking the burgers in a hot skillet gives them a beautiful, crispy crust. By topping the burgers with crisp lettuce and juicy tomatoes, you guarantee layers of taste and texture for a delicious cookout meal.
