Black Bean Burger

Black bean burger.

This is a first for me.

I had never eaten a bean burger before.

I love a good 'ole hamburger.
I didn't make this to stray away, I simply wanted to try something different.

Pretty good, I must say...

I mashed up the beans and added an onion.

Some bread crumbs, salt, pepper, dried parsley, and a farm fresh egg round out the ingredients.

Make the patties to the desired shape you want.
They do not shrink up like a beef burger does.

I cooked them in some butter for a little extra flavor.

You can doctor them up how ever you want.
Cheese.  Mayonnaise.  Lettuce.  Mustard.  Ketchup.  Pickles.  Tomato.

Black Bean Burger
2 cans black beans, drained
1 onion, diced
1 cup bread crumbs
1 egg
salt, pepper, and dried parsley to taste

In a bowl add the two cans of drained black beans.
Mash with a fork, leaving some beans visible.
Add the onion, bread crumbs, egg, salt, pepper and dried parsley.
Stir all together.

Heat 2 tablespoons of butter in a skillet over medium-high heat.
Form the bean mixture into patties. (The patties will not shrink like beef patties do.)
Fry the patties 5 minutes per side, or until heated through.

Eat plain or on a bun piled high with your favorite condiments.


  1. I've heard a lot of good things about bean burgers! Yours look really good, especially with the onions added, yum! Thanks for sharing your recipe, it is always great to try new things isn't it! :)

  2. You always surprise us! These look really good and since they are quick and easy, I'm giving them a try. Thanks for the good idea.

  3. because we don't use them much black beans are one of the funny things in my pantry. I can't wait to try this!
