This Black Bean Burger recipe is equally delicious for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike! Its hearty and simple to prepare, with bold flavor and a great texture.
Even though a black bean burger is typically thought of as a vegetarian substitute for beef, I find them to be gloriously delicious in their own right, and I say this as someone who eats meat.


Black beans 30 Ounce (((((2 15oz cans)))))
Dry breadcrumbs 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Garlic powder 1/2 Teaspoon
Onion powder 1/2 Teaspoon
Ground cumin 1/2 Teaspoon
Paprika 1/2 Teaspoon
Egg 1
Salt and pepper To Taste
Monterey jack cheese slice 4
Olive oil 2 Tablespoon (((((for grilling)))))
Hamburger buns 4 (((((toasted)))))
Mayonnaise 4 Tablespoon
Tomato slices 4
Lettuce pieces 4



Place the black beans on a flat surface and mash them well with a fork.

Place in a bowl and add the breadcrumbs, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, paprika, and egg. Mix together well.

Form this mixture into four patties, then grill them on a griddle or in a skillet over medium high heat for 5 minutes on each side, until golden brown.


Prepare the burgers as desired, with mayonnaise spread on the buns, and with lettuce, tomato, and melted cheese.
