Delish! Very easy to make. Only bean burger I've ever made that didn't fall apart and maintained a texture very much like a meat burger.


4 cloves Garlic; minced
1 large Onion; finely chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil or cooking spray
1 medium Carrot; shredded
1 teaspoon Chili powder
1 teaspoon Ground cumin
1 15-oz can Pinto beans; rinsed and drained
1 15-oz can Black beans; rinsed and drained
1 1/2 cups Quick cooking oats
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons Soy sauce
1 tablespoon Ketchup
1/4 teaspoon Pepper
8 leafs Lettuce
8 tablespoon Salsa

Original recipe makes 8 Servings



In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, saute onion and garlic in oil for 2 minutes. Stir in the carrot, chili powder and cumin; cook 2 minutes longer or until carrot is tender. Remove from the heat; set aside.

In a large bowl, mash the pinto beans and black beans. Stir in the oats. Add the mustard, soy sauce, ketchup, pepper and carrot mixture; mix well. Shape into eight 3-1/2-in. patties.

Coat grill rack with cooking spray before starting the grill. Grill patties, covered, over medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until heated through. Serve on buns with lettuce and salsa.


Loved the texture, closest to a real burger I've ever made! It did not fall apart and grilled very easily. LOVE LOVE LOVED IT!

Even the raw one looks tasty. It's ready for the grill!

Grill with some Beef Tomato and Spanish Onion

Try it in some Pitta bread instead of a bun.

Pre-cooking, and using haricot+kidney beans.

These were excellent and, as advertised, did not crumble. The flavours and texture were very good.

This recipe was simple.. It took little bit of time to make but its awesome. .it didn't fall apart on grill. I added mushrooms to carrots mixture and flax seedpaste to help.

Very Good recipe, great idea to use oats not flour, held together really well and very tasty :-)

Great! Texture means you can move them without them disintegrating like others I tried. Worked great with haricot+kidney beans instead :)
