If you are on a search for a quick, inexpensive, crowd pleasing recipe, this is it. For about $1.50 I got 8 delicious black bean burger patties! I also think this would be a great recipe to freeze and reheat for those of us that aren’t huge fans of veggie burgers or meat burgers.
The only problem I encountered was that the burgers tried falling apart on me after being cooked. They just need a gentle hand and some patience though.
My husband, who scoffs at anything meatless that dares call itself a burger, really enjoyed these! He said on day 2 they weren’t as good but since we only had 1 patty left, I consider that a success.

- Heat a grill or grill pan over medium-low heat.
- In a food processor, pulse garlic, 1 can of beans, egg, cumin, and red pepper flakes.
- Transfer mixture to a large mixing bowl, add the remaining can of black beans and the bread crumbs. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and mix until well combined.
- Divide mixture into patties (6 to 8 depending on preference). Place on hot oiled grill over medium-low heat and cook about 6 minutes a side or until heated through.
