Vegan Black Bean Burger Recipe

I just came up with this recipe while trying to figure out how I could make use of some black beans I had laying around. So without further ado here is the recipe:

Serves 5-6

Patty Ingredients:

  • 1 can of Black Beans (washed and drained)
  • 1 cup of bread crumbs (I recommend Panko)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 2-4 sprigs of thyme
  • 1 ½ tablespoons of garlic and herb (or garlic powder)
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder (or ½ onion)
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • Hot sauce (to your liking)
  • ¼ cup apple sauce (or any egg replacement)

 

Optional Add-ons:

  • 5-6 hamburger buns
  • Vegan cheese spread (I used cashew)
  • 5-8 leaves of spinach (or one slice of lettuce) per burger
  • 2 tomatoes(sliced)

 

Directions:

  1. Put beans into a large bowl and mash well with fork or potato masher.
  2. Add apple sauce or egg replacement and mix until combined.
  3. Then add bread crumbs, salt, pepper, mustard, hot sauce, thyme, garlic, chili powder and onion.
  4. Mix well to combine and shape into patties.

 

Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in large skillet over medium low heat. Arrange Patties in a single layer and cook on one side for 5 minutes. Then flip and cook other side for another five minutes for a total of 10 minutes. When done transfer to buns and top with chosen add-ons.

*Notes:

  • I found the garlic and herb at Sams club
  • This it the literal most delicious black bean burger recipe I have ever had in my life and I’ve had a lot of them. I hope you enjoy this recipe and be sure to leave a comment on how it turns out(:
