These easy cheesy bean burgers with a wholesome homemade (cheat’s) tomato sauce are a yummy meat-free dinner option. Burgers are a big hit with a lot of kids, probably because they can assemble them themselves, and add whatever they like. Oh, and let’s not forget about the fact that they can eat them with their hands!
So, if you’re looking for a vegetarian alternative to your usual burger repertoire, these bean burgers are super simple to make, freeze well, and are awesome lunchbox fillers. The homemade tomato sauce recipe is optional, but if you’d rather not use commercial tomato sauce, you can whip this up and keep it in the fridge for about a week. We’re using tinned tomatoes for convenience, but you could always use fresh and simmer it for longer. It’s sweetened with a little apple, so your kids should love it!
