Description

The best veggie burger you’ll ever eat. So tasty you won’t miss the meat!

Ingredients

  • 1 can (16 Oz. Size) Black Beans
  • ½ whole Onion, Cut Into Wedges
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Peeled And Rough Chopped
  • 1 whole Red Pepper, Stem And Seeds Removed, Chopped
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Chili Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Sriracha Hot Sauce (or Your Favorite Hot Sauce)
  • ½ cups Finely Chopped Cilantro
  • 1 cup Panko Bread Crumbs
  • 2 Tablespoons Canola Oil
  • 4 whole Burger Buns Or Kaiser Rolls

Preparation

Drain the can of black beans. In a mixing bowl, mash the black beans with a fork or a potato masher.

Use a food processor to chop the onion, garlic, and red pepper until very fine. Stir the mixture in with the beans.

In a separate mixing bowl, combine the egg, cumin, onion powder, chili powder, Sriracha and cilantro. Add this to the bean mixture and combine well.

If the mixture has a lot of liquid, strain with a cheesecloth or let it strain through a colander with very fine holes. Once the excess liquid has drained off, return the bean mixture to the bowl and stir in half of the bread crumbs.

Use your hands to form four evenly sized patties. Coat the outside of the burger patties in the remaining bread crumbs.

Heat the oil in a skillet on medium high heat. Cook burgers in the pan until heated through and slightly browned on both sides.

Put the burger on top of a bun. Dress with all your favorite burger condiments and enjoy!

This recipe was OK in my opinion. Kind of bland in flavor (definitely needs some salt and more of ALL the spices) and not at all spicy.

The combination of onions, garlic, and pepper is ingenious! I loved it so much I kept the juice that I strained when my mixture was too moist. I added the leftover juice to some left over bean soup and it really tastes great! This is a great veggie burger recipe! Thanks for sharing!

We’ve made these twice and I love the flavor! The second time I added bulgar because I’m addicted to it. :) These taste great, thank you for a fantastic recipe!

Yummy! I used some fresh hominy I had in the fridge instead of beans and skipped the chili powder (I’m not a very able person when it comes to hot spices), but otherwise followed the recipe. Wonderful mix of flavors and the texture was very pleasant. I made my patties much smaller and ended up with about a dozen, so I’m really looking forward to lunches this week. Thanks!

Delish! Really enjoyed the taste and the texture. I have had a pregnancy food obsession with something similar from Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar. Now i can make them at home! I accidently threw in all the breadcrumbs and found that this gave an ideal consistecy. (I also drained the beans through a strainer.) Gorgeous!
