I Love πŸ’– Black Bean Burgers!

Yes, they are my favourite veggie burgers ever, and I can’t believe it took me so long to try making them!

They are so full of flavour, so quick to make, and so good for you too.

Here is my recipe, which has been tried and tested several times. I have tuned it to our taste, but try adding other herbs and spices if you prefer.

Black Bean Burgers

For four burgers you will need:

  • 1 (400g/14oz) tin of black beans, drained and thoroughly rinsed
  • 1 small onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 4 tbsps oats
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed (the sort that is like flour) or soya flour
  • 2 tsps mixed herbs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • dried breadcrumbs for coating
  • oil for frying

Place all ingredients except the breadcrumbs and oil into a food mixer and process to a slightly chunky paste. Form into four patties, coat in the breadcrumbs and chill for at least thirty minutes. Then heat the oil in a frying pan and fry until golden brown. Serve in buns with fries and all the trimmings (e.g. gherkins, salad, ketchup and mustard or mayonnaise). πŸ˜€

Enjoy!

  1. My husband and I love black bean burgers. I never thought to coat them with crumbs, and I will give it a try next time I make them. (I also make chickpea patties with slightly different spicing, oregano rather than chili powder.)

    • I love quick recipes too and have managed to cut time to under 40 minutes on most of our everyday meals. Sometimes it’s fun to spend a few hours in the kitchen, but not always! πŸ˜‰

  2. I love a good black bean burger but I haven’t made them myself! I don’t think this recipe could be any easier, AND I have all the ingredients on-hand! Thank you! Yum!

    • I ate my first black bean burger only last autumn and loved it so much I decided I just had to recreate it at home. So easy! Hope you enjoy them if you make these Debra! πŸ™‚

  3. Cathy, thank you very much for the recipe. Too easy! It looks very appetizing. On Saturday morning I buy all the ingredients and that will be my lunch with a good salad. I’ll tell you how I get it, because I’m a mess cooking except with vegetables. Greetings from Margarita.

      • Cathy the hamburgers did not come out round, but they were delicious! The first dough I made had to throw it out because it came out hard as a stone. But the second I got it. Do not cook, but your recipe has already taken the quiet: “Cathy burgers with a touch of Margarita that does not know how to make round” πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Take care. Greetings from Margarita.

  4. Oh, yes, I love them, too. My daughter who’s a vegan has turned me on to quite a few interesting recipes, and this (or one like it) is one of them. Another delicious recipe she found was for quinoa tacos. Yum! πŸ™‚

    • It seems I am the only one to have just discovered them. Where have I been hiding?! But then I do live in Bavaria where black beans are rather exotic…. πŸ˜‰

    • It is really quick Susie, and with no hidden ingredients like the shop-bought ones! πŸ˜‰ I have never seen them in the shops here, so when I saw a tin of black beans (also hard to find) I knew I had to try making them!

  5. Thanks Cathy – will try this recipe out before we next entertain vegan niece and boyfriend. The challenge might be finding a tin of black beans in our local shops 😦

    • I may have had them some years ago, but Mexican food is not so common here. Various other beans are often on the menu here though, except for kidney beans which I find highly overrated. πŸ™‚
