50 Awesome Vegan Black Bean Recipes


Black beans! They've always been one of my favorite foods and proteins. They're inexpensive, easy to work with, and packed with fiber which is great for your digestive tract. As you can see from the wide range of recipes below, they're extremely versatile as well. You can add them to breakfast dishes, salad, soup, tacos, enchiladas, dips, burgers, pizza, lasagna, and... yes, even dessert!! I set out to compile a list of 50 recipes but it ended up being closer to 60 because there are so many incredible, creative ways to enjoy this awesome bean. Have fun browsing! :)
