Recipe: Black Bean Burgers

If you’re looking for a burger and you’re not a meat eater or you don’t have any ground meat in the house this burger is the perfect substitute. With a bit of a kick and some nice spices mixed in this burger is hearty and delicious. Topped with an avocado, some baby spinach, and a tomato this is a wholesome meal everyone will enjoy. The nicest part about this recipe is how well the beans stick together since most bean burgers seems to fall apart on you. I like to bake these in the oven but they’re just as easily grilled on the stove for a quick, no-nonsense meal.

Black Bean Burgers
Serves 8
  1. 2 cans black beans, drained
  2. 1 small onion, roughly chopped
  3. 1 clove of garlic
  4. 1 egg
  5. 2 small jalapenos
  6. 1 tablespoon chili powder
  7. 1-2 teaspoons each: salt, pepper, cumin, chipolte pepper
  8. a handful of fresh cilantro
  9. 1 cup corn
  10. 3/4 cup of bread crumbs (I used panko)
  11. finely diced green pepper (optional)
  1. In a food processor pulse onion, garlic, jalapenos, black beans, egg, spices, cilantro, and half the corn. Pulse to combine (may take a bit).
  2. Transfer mixture to a large mixing bowl stir in remaining corn and the breadcrumbs until mixed together. You can add in finely chopped pepper for extra texture if you want.
  3. Shape black bean mixture into patties as you would a regular hamburger (if the mixture is too loose you can add another egg or more breadcrumbs)
  4. To cook on the stovetop: Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat then grill on each side for 5 minutes
  5. To cook in the oven: Heat the oven to 400 degrees and let cook for about 20-25 minutes, flipping halfway.
