I have eaten black bean burgers before and I am a fan. I was pretty excited for this recipe from Tasty and had high hopes. This recipe can also be vegan as long as you use the right oats and bun or go sans bun.
Here’s what you need:
2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1 onion, minced
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 carrots, shredded
1/2 cup quick oats
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat the olive oil in a pan. Add in your onions, garlic, salt and pepper. Cook until the onions are translucent.
Add in the carrots, cumin, coriander, chili powder, and cayenne pepper. Cook until the carrots are tender and remove from the heat.
In a large bowl, mash both cans of beans. Add in the ingredients from the pan, the oats and soy sauce. Mix until well combined.
Tasty made these into 4 patties. You should probably do 6 if you have normal sized buns. They also said to place patties in the freezer for 30 minutes to set but you might want to leave them in for a little longer.
Once you are ready to cook your burgers, spray a pan and cook them on medium heat. This literally took FOREVER. I made Josh’s and let him start eating. He was completely done before mine was even done cooking. When you eat them, be prepared for crumble city. These just fell apart all over the place.
Overall, the burgers had great flavor. I will probably end up using an egg or 2 the next time I make them so they hold together. I will also make smaller burgers because they were ginormous.
