Black Bean Burgers

Dish: Entrees
Dish Type: Other
Difficulty: 1 / 10
Prep Time:
Cook Time:

  • 1 (16 oz) can - black beans, drained & rinsed
  • 1/2 - onion chopped
  • 1/2 - green pepper, chopped
  • 3 cloves - garlic, minced
  • 1 - egg
  • 1 tbsp - chili powder
  • 1 tbsp - cumin
  • 1 tsp - Thai chili sauce, Red Hot, or Tabasco sauce
  • 1/2 cup - bread crumbs

If grilling, preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil a sheet of aluminum foil. If baking, preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C), and lightly oil a baking sheet.

In a medium bowl, mash black beans with a fork until thick and pasty.

In a food processor, finely chop bell pepper, onion, and garlic. Then stir into mashed beans.

In a small bowl, stir together egg, chili powder, cumin, and chili sauce.

Stir the egg mixture into the mashed beans. Mix in bread crumbs until the mixture is sticky and holds together. Divide mixture into four patties.

If grilling, place patties on foil, and grill about 8 minutes on each side. If baking, place patties on baking sheet, and bake about 10 minutes on each side.


You will never buy those frozen veggie-burger patties again!!

Looks good! I do get the store-bought frozen veggie patties and often thought that there must be a recipe for them. :) I'll have to save this and try them in the future. Thanks!
