Great, satisfiying black bean burgers ready in no time!


1/2 cup Flour; (I used a gluten free flour blend)
1 sm Onion; diced
2 cloves Garlic; minced
1/2 teaspoon Oregano; dried or chopped fresh
1 sm Hot or jalapeno pepper; minced (optional)
1/2 medium Red bell pepper; diced
2 cups Cooked or canned black beans; mashed
1/2 cup Corn; (I loosely chopped mine)
1/2 cup Bread crumbs; can easily make your own w/ GF bread
1/4 teaspoon Cumin
1/2 teaspoon Salt
2 teaspoon Chili powder; (I used 1 tsp)
2 tablespoon Fresh parsley; chopped

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



On a small plate, set aside flour for coating. In a medium saucepan, saute the onion, garlic, oregano, and hot pepper in oil on a medium-high heat until the onions are translucent. Add the peppers and saute another 2 minutes, until the pepper is tender. Set aside. In a large bowl, mash the black beans with a potato masher or fork. Stir in the vegetables (including corn), bread crumbs, cumin, salt, chili powder, and parsley. Mix well. Divide into 4-6 patties. Lay each patty in flour, coating each side. Cook in the warm pan on med-high with additional oil (about 1 Tbl.) for 5-10 mins on each side or until browned on both sides. Can top with cheese of your choice.

Best black bean burgers I ever made. My husband even liked them. I sub'd cilantro for the parsley, doubled the cumin and omitted the oregano, and added about a 1/4 cup of shredded pepper-jack to the bean mixture to help bind them. These burgers were very easy to form and I baked them in the oven at 375 for about 10 min a side. Will continue to make.

you FOR SURE have to let them sit and meld, i do it overnight. If not they are passable at best. After a night in the fridge they are flavorful and (with some add ons) delicious!!

I would like to know the prep time and such. I'm looking for something quick. ;)

These tasted delicious and were quite filling. My kids and husband liked them too. I'd probably add an egg because they didn't hang together very well. A tomato slice was perfect on top,

These turned out pretty well. Very fresh and healthy, and I will definitely add more chili powder next time (only used 1 tsp) because I love spice. Jack cheese was really tasty on top. Mashed avocado, mayo, fresh tomato and lettuce made these burgers complete. A little bit of work, but I will probably make them again in the future with a few tweaks. I also added an egg to the mixture this time around to help moisten them up a bit.

I made this recipe tonight to go with my tomato soup recipe. It was delicious. It was very easy to make and cheap. The texture was like silk and it had the perfect amount of spices. I will be adding this recipe to my weekly rotation. The leftovers will make an easy lunch.
