Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Ever since I wrote the post about Boca Burgers Exposed, I have been making it a mission to create easy veggie burger recipes.  Like these black bean veggie burgers.  You can read about the Boca Burger post here.  This is a burger recipe we have been making for a long time, so I thought it was about time to get it up on the blog. These burgers provides a nice alternative that even older kids should be able to sink their jaws into.  These black bean veggie burgers would be great on whole grain bread, in a sprouted corn tortilla or served over quinoa.  The key to making this a tasty dish is the caramelized onions and the crispy outside.


This recipe makes a lot so you will be able to freeze some.  That is what we do.  These would go great with my Healthy French Fries.

  1. Hi Melissa,

    I’m making these burgers tonight and the mixture seems very wet. I followed the recipe exactly except I used a real egg instead of a flax egg and regular white flour. I can’t exactly form them into a patty. It’s more like round circles of pancake batter on the baking sheet. Just wondering if I did something wrong and if they will come out all right? They are in the oven now.

    1. I haven’t made these in so long, but I don’t remember the batter being very wet. Can you just add some more flour? Let me know how they turn out.
