Black Bean Burger

Even meat eaters will love it

Makes 2 large burgers


1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed

1/4 cup chopped onion

2 cloves of garlic

1 egg

1/4 cup panko style bread crumbs

1/4 cup of flour

1/8 cup of powdered parmesan

1/2 tsp of cumin

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1/4 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp chili powder


Drain and rinse the black beans, remove any extra water

Add black beans, onion, and garlic cloves to a food processor

Process until onions and garlic are combined, mixture should resemble refried beans

Transfer mixture to a large bowl, bread crumbs, flour, parmesan, cumin, salt, pepper, paprika, and chili powder

Mix well with spoon

Using your hands, form the burger patties. I make 2 large patties or you could make 3 smaller ones with this recipe.

Skillet cooking:

coat skillet with olive oil ( about 1-2 tbsp) and heat to medium heat

cook burgers 5-8 min per side until browned around all edges and slightly firm.

Grill cooking:

heat grill on a medium heat

cook about 6-8 min on each side until browned

move to top rack to add cheese

How I prepared it with a meal:

topped with:

Toasted bun

Melted cheese



Sautéed onions


Kens thousand island (for in-n-out style)

Rib Rack BBQ honey

Pairs great with many different side options! I usually do grilled veggies or mac & cheese
