Black Bean Burgers

The All American Meal… Burgers. Everyone has their own take on the burger patty. Since going plant-based I often missed out on the family favorite, Then I found black bean burgers. They are so filling and delicious. They are meat free, dairy free and oil free making it so good for you and, they are easy to make. These burgers offer a lot of flavors so you won’t miss out on those other burgers.


2 cans black beans drained and rinsed

2 tbsp flax seed

2/3 cup breadcrumbs

2/3 tsp onion powder

2/3 tsp garlic powder

2/3 tsp cumin

1/3 tsp chili powder

1/3 smoked paprika

1/3 tsp salt

1/3 tsp pepper

2/3 tsp sriracha -optional-

2/3 tsp vegan Worcestershire sauce



  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375*. Make sure to drain and rinse your black beans really well before using.
  2.  in a food processor combine all of the ingredients and pulse until it becomes together and is thick. Leave a few chunks of black beans to make a better consistency.
  3. Pour the mixture into a bowl and set aside.
  4. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or a Silpat. Lightly spray with non-stick spray.
  5. Roll the bean mixture into 2 inch thick patties and place on the baking sheet pan.
  6. Bake the patties for 35 minutes and remove from the oven and gently flip the patties over. Cook for another 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool for about 15 minutes before serving.

You can serve these as regular burgers on buns with lettuce, tomato, mayo, and pickles or you can serve over rice with spinach and sauce to make a delicious dinner bowl. I like both.
