Black Bean Burgers

With all of the summer cookouts going on, I’ve definitely had my fill of wonderful, beefy burgers. It was time to switch it up and go vegetarian for a night. So I devised these absolutely incredible black bean burgers! They were much easier than I thought to put together and so satisfying too.

The star of these black bean burgers were obviously loads of black beans. I just drained and rinsed two cans of them!
The star of these black bean burgers were obviously loads of black beans. I just drained and rinsed two cans of them. Since they were canned and not raw they were already tender enough to mash.
This mixture for the black bean burgers was looking and smelling great already!
I just mixed those mashed black beans with the rest of the aromatics and spices to make a really flavorful mixture. It was looking and smelling great already! Then I it down into a firm, even layer and scored it into quarters. That way I knew I had four equal patties. 
Oh my goodness, I was so excited about how these black bean burgers were looking.
It took about 4-5 minutes on each side to cook the burgers to perfection. I used my beloved, trusty electric griddle for the job and it was perfect! Oh my goodness, I was so excited about how these black bean burgers were looking.

I just dressed them up with mashed avocado, sliced tomato, sliced onion and ketchup on a toasty roll. Then it was time to dig in. They were so meaty without the meat, ha! There was just enough heat to give great flavor. The patties were so tender. I loved going vegetarian for a night with these black bean burgers, hope you do too. Enjoy, friends! xoxo

Ingredients
  • 2 cans black beans 15 oz size, drained, rinsed and mashed
  • 1/2 an onion peeled and minced, plus the other side sliced for garnish
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 dash worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 4 whole hamburger rolls
  • 2 whole avocados peeled, pitted and mashed
  • sliced tomato as needed
  • ketchup or mayo as needed
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl combine the mashed black beans, minced onion, eggs, Worcestershire sauce, salt, smoked paprika and chili powder. With cleans hands bring it together into one uniform mixture. Press it down into a flat disc and score the disc into quarters to lay out the 4 patties.
  2. Pre-heat an electric griddle to 350 or heat a non-stick griddle pan over medium high heat. Form each of the scored quarters into firm patties and get them onto the hot flat tops. Allow them to cook and brown in the first side for 4-5 minutes, then flip them to do the same on the other side. Remove them to a plate and get ready to serve!
  3. Have toasted hamburger rolls and any other condiments you want ready to dress these babies up. I served mine with mashed avocado, tomato slices, and onion slices with some ketchup to top it off. These could also be served in lettuce leaves to cut out the carbs!
