Giving up burgers as you try to slim down? Not so fast! Try a delicious twist using this black bean burger recipe.

A traditional burger from a restaurant can run you 776 calories, 44 grams of fat, 53 grams of carbohydrates and 42 grams of protein. It would take you about 4 hours of walking to burn that off. 4 hours! And that is not including the fries.

The recipe below allows you to enjoy a great tasting burger guilt free by replacing fatty beef with black beans, and using lettuce to replace the high-carb bun. If you eat this low-fat, homemade black bean burger, rather than the store or restaurant bought option, you will be saving yourself nearly 500 calories!
