Black Bean Burger

Hello Everyone,

Nothing beats a spicy black bean burger on a very cold winters day. This recipe was adapted from Isa's Black Bean Burger in Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook. Serve on homemade buns (recipe coming soon) with your favorite toppings.

Black Bean Burgers

  • 2 Cups Black Beans
  • 1/2 Cup Vital Wheat Gluten
  • 1/4 Cup Bread Crumbs
  • 1/4 Cup Yellow Cornmeal
  • 1 Tablespoon Tomato Paste (or Ketchup)
  • 1/4 Cup Water
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil (Optional, I made it without the oil and it tasted fine)
  • 1 Teaspoon Red Chile Powder
  • 1/8-1/4 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Hot Sauce (optional, Depending on your level of taste)

  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Mash the black beans in a mixing bowl our use a food processor/blender to puree the beans.
  • Mix with remaining ingredients and knead the mixture for 3-5 minutes.
  • Shape into patties and place on cookie sheet that is greased and covered with cornmeal (to reduce sticking and add texture)
  • Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes
  • Remove from oven and flip each burger
  • Cook for another 10-15 minutes or until burger begins to brown on the edges
  • Serve with homemade bun and top with salsa, vegan cheese or hot sauce.
