  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  2. Mash black beans in a bowl; add onion, garlic, carrots, and green bell pepper. Mix.
  3. Whisk cornstarch, water, chile-garlic sauce, chili powder, cumin, seafood seasoning, salt, and black pepper together in a separate small bowl. Stir cornstarch mixture into black bean mixture.
  4. Mix whole-wheat bread into bean mixture. Stir flour, 1/4 cup at a time, into bean mixture until a sticky batter forms.
  5. Spoon 'burger-sized' mounds of batter onto the prepared baking sheet, about a 3/4-inch thickness per mound. Shape into burgers.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until cooked in the center and crisp in the outside, about 10 minutes on each side.


  • Cook's Note:
  • One egg can be substituted for cornstarch, but it makes the recipe not vegan.

This is the BEST BURGER recipe EVER! I made 4 of these burgers for myself (I am vegan) and made regular cheeseburgers for my kids- MY VEGAN BURGERS ARE GONE- I have 3 cheeseburgers left!

I've started making these every week to have in the fridge for a quick lunch or snack. I double the recipe and add a whole medium sweet potato (baked and mashed) and WOW! that just knocks them o...

nice and easy, i made it gluten free by substituting cooked brown rice for the whole wheat bread, with great results.

We added 1tbsp flax seed and 1tbsp chia seed for protein and froze the patties overnight. Served them on toasted bread with avacado, arugula, tomato, cucumber and scallions after frying. Honestl...

Horribly dry, deffinatly needs some tweaking .

I made this with leftover black beans from black beans and rice, added a few extra seasonings, the bread and some flour, and cooked as directed. They turned out amazing!

These are super tasty and good. My DH thinks they are better than MorningStar. I make a batch, cooked on parchment paper, and then freeze them in a gallon bag. They can then be taken out indi...
