I have two different veggie burger recipes and found that mixing them into one created the ULTIMATE veggie bean burger. The black beans and bold mix of flavor offers a burger that wont dissapoint. You will not even miss the 'meat'
Cook the brown rice according to package directions.
Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat. Lightly oil a sheet of aluminum foil.
Mash black beans in a large bowl with a fork until thick and pasty; set aside.
Place the bell pepper, onion, mushrooms, and garlic in the bowl of a food processor, and chop finely. Stir the bell pepper mixture into the mashed black beans.
Place the brown rice and mozzarella cheese in the food processor, and process until combined. Stir the mixture into the black beans.
Whisk together the eggs, chili powder, cumin, garlic salt, and hot sauce. Stir the egg mixture into the black bean mixture.
Stir in the bread crumbs, adding additional bread crumbs as needed until the mixture is sticky and holds together.
Divide into 6 large patties.
Place patties onto the prepared foil, and grill until browned and heated through, about 8 minutes per side.
NJinGA 2y agoI made with quinoa instead of brown rice, and GF bread crumbs. I don't like green pepper and my daughter doesn't care for mushrooms, so I used carrot and celery for crunch and zucchini for moisture. I also cooked in a convection oven at 400F. The only changes I might try next time are: 1. Cut the recipe in half. I got 10 good sized burgers from this. 2. Sauté the veggies briefly before using to keep them from being so dry.

rdelassus 3y agoExcellent recipe, added shredded sweet potato to help with consistency and fried them in a little olive oil. Amazing sandwich or just by themselves.
3Lupa 3y agoI love this with my taco or chili seasoning mix added. The kids don't even notice that there's no meat! I feel like I CAN win the veggie battle - with stealth...
Muzikah 3y agoI have a lot of food sensitivities, so I made this with quinoa instead of rice, used flax & water instead of egg, added oats & chia seed, used Daiya dairy-free cheese & broiled them. Also less garlic. Very good & would make again.
sethconaway31 3y agoAbsolutely delicious and so easy to make! Hands down the most delicious veggie burger I've ever eaten.

Sofi20 4y agoReally tasty!! First time making them today - not too labor-intensive if you have a food processor. Only thing is, like others said, it was definitely quite mushy - as long as you don't mind the mis-shapen form it'll probably be at the end, definitely a great recipe.
rdelassus 4y agoThe flavor is great - I did struggle with the consistency, my first trial burger was a bit mushy so I switched to slider size burgers that were thin and then I sautéed them in a little olive oil until crisp. I also grated some sweet potato and covered the burgers in sweet potato before frying up. Yum!
Cookinalookin 4y agoThese are the best veggie burgers I've made, great for anyone, vegetarian or not! They take a little effort but worth the effort they taste delicious!
