Black Bean Burgers

These were so good I ate them too fast to take a great picture!
Black Bean Veggie Burgers
What You Need:
1 16oz can of Black Beans (Drained and rinsed)
1/2 Yellow Onion, finely chopped
1/2 Bell Pepper, finely chopped
1/4 cup Chopped Carrot
1/4 cup Finely Chopped Zucchini
1 Egg
1/2 Roma Tomato, finely chopped (remove the gooey inside first)
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Parsley Flakes
1 pinch Salt 
1 pinch Black Pepper
1/2 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
1/2 cup shredded Cheese (Cheddar Jack is Great)
Juice of 1/2 Lime
1 cup Plain Bread crumbs.

To start, smash the beans so they are almost all mushed. THen, add all the remaining ingredients.

The simplest way is to skillet cook these, though grilling is an option and adds awesome flavors-- if grilling make sure you rub the grill with some olive oil so your burger doesn't stick! I put a small amount of olive oil in a skillet over medium/ medium low heat.  Next, place the patties down and let it brown for about 8 minutes. Flip, repeat. Be careful to flip slowly, and make sure you don't burn the patty! 
This is so full of yum, I just use lettuce and a little bit of extra cheese!  An excellent veggie packed burger.




  1. Yum! We have black bean burgers on our menu this week. Love that you were able to include so many veggies in yours. :)

  2. These look so good! I've never made my own veggie burgers - little wary about how they'll turn out - but I cannot wait to make these!!

  3. Do not fear the veggie burgers, and they will be an amazing defeat for you in the kitchen!

    Let me know how they treat you! I devoured mine faster than I should mention!! ;)
