Black Bean Burger:

2 – 14 oz cans plain black beans, rinsed and drained 

1 tablespoon grapeseed oil

1/2 cup finely chopped red onion

2/3 cup diced red pepper

1 teaspoon cumin

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 egg

1/2 cup panko

1/2 cups chopped scallions

1/2 cup fresh chopped cilantro



Onion & Garlic Powder

2 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce

2 tablespoons ketchup

Sriracha Mayo:

1/2 cup Mayo

1 tablespoon Sriracha

Juice from 1/2 lime


Buns, sliced tomato, red onion, avocado, lettuce (anything you’d like!)


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F

On a parchment lined sheet tray add the rinsed and dried black bean in a thin layer. Put the tray into the preheated oven and let them cook for 10 minutes to dry out the black beans slightly

After the black beans are done cooking add them into a bowl. Using a fork mash the black beans. I like to leave some of the black beans whole but you can make them as mashed as you’d like! You can even put them into a food processor

While the beans are cooking heat up a saute pan with the grapeseed oil. Add in the onion, red pepper, pinch of salt and pepper, and cumin. Let sautee for about a minute

Add in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds

Add the cooked veggies into the bowl with the black beans. To the bowl add in the egg, panko, chopped scallions, chopped cilantro, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, salt, pepper, onion and garlic powder. Use your hands to combined very well

Form 4 equal patties out of the mixture and let them stand for about 5 minutes

Heat up a skillet over medium high heat with a little grapeseed oil. Once hot add the patties and let them cook for 3-5 minutes on each side until a beautiful golden brown

While the burgers are cooking combine the mayo, Sriracha, and lime juice

After the burgers are cooked assemble as you’d like and devour! YUM!
