Directions

  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.

We loved these! My black bean loving daughter devoured an entire burger. I chose to skip the flour and bread in favor of a bit of panko. I did still add the cornstarch. To help the burgers stay together I chilled the finished mixture a few hours then formed the parties in wax paper and put in the freezers to set up a bit more. Next time I think I will go a step further and pre bake so I can allow them to sit out a bit and dry out so they form a nice crispy outside when placed under the broiler for 10 minutes or so. I added carrots, pre grilled corn I had left over, green onion, and garlic for my veg and to add some smoky flavor I added smoked paprika.

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!

This was sooooo delicious. I made an avocado sauce for the burgers and served it all on steamed kale. LOVE.

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!

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

I wanted it as a finger food, so I made it like falafel, it was DELICIOUS! Instead of burgers, shape like teaspoon-size meatballs. Deep fry in very hot oil. They are very tasty, so don't over-do the condiments. Just serve with pita triangles & cucumber sauce (or sour cream).

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. Honestly the best veggie burger I've ever had. Thanks so much!!
