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.
  2. I plan to use 1/2-3/4 cup almond flour as breading and anytime I make something like this and it's too wet, you just add more almond flour. In my opinion, almond is the GF version of cornmeal. I make a hushpuppy almond bread that mimics a hush puppy: 2 cups almond flour, 1 Tbsp baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp cream of tartar, 1 tsp active dry yeast (for structure), 1 pkg plain gelatin, 1-1/2 cups buttermilk, 3 large or 4 medium eggs, beaten, 1 small finely diced sweet onion, 1 or 1-1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, 1/4 cup flax seed meal, 1/2 cup or 1 stack melted butter. Combine all ingreds in a large bowl & stir with a wooden spoon. Bake at 325`F in a glass pyrex 11X9-inch dish for 40-45 mins and it taste line a hush puppy. Take care...
  3. I finally made these burgers and I just love them. I cannot use panko nor corn so I used millet flour. They look just like a real burger. Mr Boopie even tried them on a bun and he loved them. Thank you so much.
