Black Bean Burger Recipe

These delicious vegetarian black bean burger patties get a nice smoky flavor (even if you can’t cook them outdoors on a charcoal grill) thanks to the ground chipotle powder.

Ingredients

  • 2 15.5 ounce cans seasoned black beans
  • 1 Cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • ½ small onion, diced very small
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ Cup corn kernels
  • ½ Teaspoon chipotle powder
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1 egg
  • Canola oil, for grilling
  • 4 slices jack cheese
  • 4 hamburger buns, toasted
  • Lettuce, for serving
  • Sliced tomato, for serving
  • Sliced red onion, for serving

Directions

Drain the beans but do not rinse them. Add the bread crumbs, onion, garlic, corn, chipotle powder, salt, pepper, and egg to the beans and then mix with your hands, squishing some of the beans as you go to form a chunky paste.

Form the black bean mixture into 4 burger patties.

Heat your grill to medium heat and brush each of the black bean burger patties with canola oil to prevent sticking. Cook the patties until heated through, about 5 minutes per side.

Then, place 1 slice of cheese onto each patty and cook for 2 minutes more, or until the cheese is melted.

Serve the black bean burgers on the toasted buns, topped with lettuce, tomato, and red onion, to taste.

Black Bean Burger Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Black Bean Burger Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
