Black Bean Veggie Burgers

I got this recipe from VegCooking.com. They are easy to make and taste delicious. :)

Black-Bean Veggie Burgers

2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 cup diced red onion
1/2 cup diced bell pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1 jalapeño, minced
2 cups black beans
1/2 cup corn
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 tsp. cumin
2 Tbsp. chopped cilantro
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup flour

  • In a saucepan over medium heat, in 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, sauté the onion, bell pepper, garlic, and jalapeño for 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, mash the black beans, then add the sautéed vegetables, corn, and bread crumbs and mix well. Season with cumin, cilantro, and salt and mix again.
  • Shape into 6 patties, then coat each in flour.
  • Place a pan over medium-high heat and add the remaining tablespoon of oil. Cook each patty for about 5 minutes on each side, or until lightly browned.

Makes 6 small patties

  1. i tried this today, and it worked out well, but be sure to drain the beans well, if there is too much moisture, the whole mixture sticks to your hands and you won't be able to make the patties. :)
