Black bean burgers

Category: Sandiwches/Burgers

Suitable for a: vegan diet



1 small onion, minced

1/2 green bell pepper, minced

1 clove garlic, minced

1 T oil

1/2 t cumin

2 canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, minced

1 15 oz can black beans, drained

1/2 - 3/4 c bread crumbs

salt and pepper to taste



Saute onion, bell pepper and garlic in oil until tender. Add cumin and chipotle peppers and cook another 2-3 minutes.

In a mixing bowl, mash the black beans. Add sauteed vegetables and mix well. Add salt and pepper according to taste. Then add enough bread crumbs so that the mixture is able to stick together well.

Form the black bean mixture into 6 patties. Refrigerate patties for about 30 minutes. Chilling the patties will help keep them from falling apart during cooking.

After chilling the patties, heat a saute pan that is lightly oiled or sprayed with cooking spray to about medium heat. I like to spray a bit of cooking spray on both sides of the patties too. Pan fry the patties until lightly browned, about 5 minutes on each side.

Serve on bread of choice with desired toppings. Enjoy!

Additional comments:


I came up with these the other day and they turned out great. Don't skip the chipotle chilies. They add a nice smoky, roasted flavor. You can adjust the amount depending on how much heat you like.

I had them on lightly toasted multi-grain bread. I made a spicy mayo by mixing some of the adobo sauce from the chipotle chilies and some chopped cilantro with a bit of Vegenaise. I squeezed some fresh lime juice on the patties and topped the sandwich with lettuce and tomato. Super yum!!

Nice recipe. What's adobo sauce?

I think it could also help to add about 1/2 cup of flour, to make them stiff.

Adobo sauce is basically a Mexican/Aztec style tomato sauce. You can find the canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce in any grocery store and the leftovers can be stored in the fridge for months and added to whatever recipe for a hot, smokey flavor.
