Copycat Mother Nature Burger from Universal Studios

Food is always my most favorite part of vacationing, except I always feel a little sick when eating out all the time. However, I came across the Krusty Burger in Universal Studios, and they had a healthier, less greasy option; The Mother Nature Burger. This black bean burger is filling, yet light, and it hardly tastes like black beans. It is so yummy, and I think I will be making these more often than I make regular burgers.
