Main - Black Bean Burgers

The credit for this awesome recipe goes entirely to my friend Leah. I believe she found the original version online somewhere, and then made some alterations. Then passed it on to me, and I probably made some alterations too. But it’s my absolute favourite veggie burger recipe. Heck, it might even be my favourite hamburger. Anyway, here’s the recipe:


19 ounce can black beans
1/2 green pepper
1/2 onion
3 cloves garlic
2 eggs
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
2 cups of bread crumbs (or quinoa flour works just as well)


Preheat oven to 375F. Drain and rinse beans, and dry on a paper towel.

2 - Dry Beans

Cut up the green pepper and set aside. Add the onion and garlic to food processor and pulse until well minced. Add the green pepper and pulse a couple times more. Empty the onion and pepper onto a paper towel and dry slightly.

1 - Cut Peppers

3 - Process Onions

Place the beans in a medium bowl and mash with a fork. Add the onions and pepper, and all remaining ingredients except for the bread crumbs, and stir together.

4 - Combine Ingredients

Add the bread crumbs and combine well.

5 - Bread Added

Form into 10-12 patties, and place on lightly oiled parchement-lined baking sheets.

6 - Patties Before

Bake for 15-20 minutes, flipping once, until golden.

7 - Patties After

Then, just dress your burger however you like!

I like to start with a toasted bun + curried mayo and goat cheese.

8 - Build 1

Then lettuce, tomato, and onion.

9 - Build 2

Then devour! Mmmmmmm.

Final - Black Bean Burgers
