The best black bean burger recipe – everything you need to know about how to make black bean burgers taste delicious!
This black bean burger recipe is an answer to all of your bland veggie burger problems.
If you’ve ever had a less than delicious veggie burger, you know how difficult it can be to find recipes that are not only meatless, but also delicious.
Today I’m sharing my favorite way to make flavorful, non mushy black bean burgers.
What are the ingredients in a black bean burger
- black beans
- panko style bread crumbs
- oat flour
- powdered parmesan
These veggie burgers are really simple to throw together and don’t take long at all to cook.
How to make black bean burgers
First, add your black beans, garlic cloves, and onion to a food processor.
Process until the garlic and onion are combined, and the mixture looks like refried beans.
Once your beans are ready, transfer them to a large bowl.
A rubber spatula is easiest to use when removing the beans from the food processor.
To the bowl, add your remaining ingredients:
1 egg, panko style bread crumbs (these are chunkier than normal bread crumbs, so be sure to buy panko), oat flour, powdered parmesan, and spices.
Mix it all up and it’s time to form them into patties!
When I made this recipe, I made 5 black bean burgers, but they were so big and filling that I think it would be better to split the recipe into 6 burgers instead.
Heat a skillet with olive oil, and place your burgers in it.
Cook on each side for 5 – 8 minutes, until browned and crispy on both sides.
Use a spatula to flatten the burgers into the pan for optimal crisp.
Once your burgers are done, it’s time to eat!
These burgers are the perfect texture, and don’t fall apart, which is a big problem with a lot of veggie burgers.
These are seriously the best black bean burgers I have ever had!
Toppings for a black bean burger

I used regular mayo on mine, but chipotle mayo would be delicious as well.
