Vegan Bean Burger Recipe

We went to a fun dinner at Kath and Matt’s house tonight!  We decided a few days ago at yoga that we should do a casual Saturday night dinner together, and we agreed to split up the menu to make it easy.  Kath and Matt would provide veggies and buns, and Casey and I would make homemade (vegetarian) burgers!  I really shouldn’t take any credit though, because this one was all Casey’s idea.

As vegetarians, we are always trying to be creative with fun ingredients and different alternatives to the standard boring fare.  We make a LOT of different veggie and bean burgers, mostly because I use it as an excuse to feed my ketchup addiction.  :)  But this burger takes the cake.  It is Casey’s third time making it, and it is AMAZING!  The best part is that you can interchange ingredients as you please – substitute any type of bean or seed, and you’ll still get the same result – just a slightly different flavor!  We’ve made these so far with black beans and garbanzos (black beans were better!).

Vegan Bean Burgers

Ingredients: (makes 6 burgers)

  • 2 cans black beans (rinsed and drained)
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • 1/2 cup dry rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp coriander
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

To Prepare:  Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  Next, add the oats and pepitas to your food processor and grind until coarsely chopped (they will still be a little chunky).  Let it run for roughly 10 seconds.  Grate the carrots, and then add to your mixture in the food processor.  Add 3/4 of the beans, all spices, and the olive oil.  Once all of this is in the food processor, give it a whir and mix it all together.

Spoon mixture into a mixing bowl and then fold in the rest of the whole, reserved beans.  Wet your hands and then form into 6 medium sized patties.  Place patties on a non-stick baking sheet or into a baking pan, and bake at 300 degrees for 40 minutes, turning once in the middle.  If you want to grill these, pre-bake them for 30 minutes at 300, and then throw them on the grill to reheat and get a little extra browning.

We pre-baked ours and did a final heat on the grill with some veggies – such a perfect summertime meal!

Enjoy!  :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my amazing big sister Rebecca!!  Wishing we could celebrate together again this year!

Hi Anonymous – you could tried grated zucchini or sweet potato if carrots aren't an option. Enjoy! :)

Steph     at 9:09 am

Made these last night with a few swaps- I didn't have carrots, so I used a sweet potato, and didn't have onion powder, so I used some chopped vidalias. I halved the recipe and didn't measure everything perfectly, so they were a little mushy, but still SUPER delicious! I will be making these again!

These are cooking in the oven right now. I used 3 cups of home-cooked black beans, and the consistency turned out just fine. Crunched the numbers to discover that they have about 200-220 calories per burger (just in case anyone is counting) depending on what kinds of seeds are used in the mix.

This is a late comment considering when you actually posted this, but I just recently made these burgers and I wanted to let you know how AMAZING they are. The ingredients are so simple (so many vegan burgers call for odd things that I don’t always have around the house) and the mix of spices comes together so nicely and provides a wonderful flavour. I made a batch and used them on a bun, then on top of veggies for lunch the next day, then in a wrap for vegan burritos…the list goes on. Even my “meat-loving” husband LOVES them so I made more and even discovered they freeze well and can be taken out the night before for a quick and easy dinner. Thanks for a new “go-to” recipe to add to my collection!

I chanced upon your blog while searching for black bean burger recipe. Mu burgers came out a bit soft and sticky inside but the outside was hard and coarse. I used quick oats instead of rolled oats and I probably had a little bit more than 2 cups of beans. Should the final mix be almost dry? Mine was not too dry or too mushy.
I am very impressed and happy on how you transformed your life and I admire people who take care to stop and peek under daily existence to find a deeper meaning :)

Hmm I’m not really sure. The quick oats may have been the problem, and extra beans would definitely add to the mush-factor. Sorry they didn’t turn out!

Hey Emily, Just made these for the first time and they came out so wet! I am trying to bake them to dry them out, but they aren’t holding any shape. Not sure what I did wrong – processed too long? Didn’t drain beans enough? Any ideas for what I could add at this point to stiffen things up a bit? (I have no dietary restrictions). Thanks!

[Reply]

Emily Malone Reply:

Really?? Could be a combination of exactly what you said – processed down to too smooth, or too much bean liquid. They shouldn’t be very wet at all, since there isn’t really any liquid in the recipe! Maybe try adding more oats to soak up some of the liquid??

So after making the masala burgers, I hada to make these (and since my husband much prefers a black bean burger for dinner). For me I felt that we amazing EXCEPT the cinnamon seemed to overpower everything, nd I swear I measured it… I will absolutely make them again, probably once per week since my hub lived on bb burgers, but I’ll just leave out the cinnamon. The rest of the flavors were great. Oh and by accidnt I forgot the olive oil, but it didnt seem to mess anything up and came out to 168 calories per BIG burger. Thanks!

After trying an awesome vegan veggie burger recipe from Oh She Glow, thought I’d give this one a try, came out well!
I made it low-carb, so with a couple substitutions. Will def be making this again :)

I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and amusing, and let me tell
you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy that I stumbled across this
in my hunt for something relating to this.

Hi there,

I’m not vegan, or even vegetarian but I am open to trying new things and eating less meat. I made these tonight and while they’re quite filling, I found the texture to be a bit too mushy. Is this normal for a veggie burger? I’ve made a different veggie burger before and had the same problem (it didn’t have oats, so was advised that that was probably why the texture was the way it was). I thought because this one had the added oats it would be a bit more tough but I found it to be the same.. Is there something I’m doing wrong or am I just not use to the texture and this is how all veggie burgers are?

Thank you! :).

Veggie burgers definitely tend to be a bit mushier than what you might be used to from a beef burger. You can also try cooking over higher heat to get the edges more browned!

I made these the other night, subbing sunflower seeds for the pepitas, and using half pinto and half black beans… they were easy and delicious! I would definitely make them again, and even my 4-year old ate one and she NEVER wants burger-like things (she thought they were too spicy though). Thanks!

Yay – glad it was a hit! We made them this week too. :)

Kerry     at 7:49 pm

This was easy and pretty good, but I was a bit disappointed with the flavor; it seems that there weren’t enough herbs and spices. Perhaps I’ll double them another time. I do also pressure cook my beans, so I may have had a bit more than would be found in a can. Thanks for the recipe.

Hi Emily– I made this recipe tonight and they were delicious!! Had them on a toasted ezekiel bun with spicy mustard and avocado- can’t wait for leftovers :)

However, mine did turn out very crumbly, may be bc I am cooking at altitude. What liquid could I add to help keep them together better?

[Reply]

Emily Malone Reply:

Glad to hear you liked them! Not sure how altitude would affect them, but maybe trying upping the olive oil? Or if you eat animal products — add an egg?
