Simple Black Bean Burger

This recipe is my favorite way to enjoy a bean burger!

It's very affordable, easy to make and it has the family's stamp of approval. Hooray! You can enjoy this patty on a bun, like a traditional burger or another idea is to place on a bed of leafy greens (my favorite).

I have always loved a good veggie burger and wish I would've started making my own sooner! They're so good for you and better tasting than any store bought ones (that I have tried)!

Since going plant based this past year I've started experimenting with different plants and this is one of my favorite recipes so far.


Makes 4 large patties

  • 1 can Organic Black Beans

  • 1/4 cup Quick Cooking Oats

  • 1 Yellow Bell Pepper (roasted)

  • 3-4 stalks Green Onion

  • 2 large Garlic Cloves

  • 1 tsp Old Bay Seasoning

  • 1/2 tsp Cumin powder

  • Pinch of Cayenne or Chili Powder (FYI chili powder is "hotter" than cayenne)

  • 1/2 tsp Salt

  • 1/4 tsp Blackpepper


  1. Drain and rinse black beans then set aside

  2. Chop green onion and mince the garlic and finely dice your roasted yellow pepper

  3. In a bowl start by mashing your black beans until you have 90% mushy. It's okay to have a few lose beans, this provides a great texture.

  4. Add in the rest of your ingredients and stir until well combined.

  • *If your mix is too dry then add a couple tablespoons of water. If your mixture is too wet then add more oats*

  1. When cooking fresh place on a non-stick skillet (you can use a small amount of oil if you need) and cook on medium head for 5 min each side or until heated through with crispy edges!

  • You can save these in the fridge for up to 5 days or you can place them in the freezer! If cooking from frozen it will just extend your baking time.
