RECIPE: Black Bean Burgers


I'm really excited about this recipe because it has taken me a minute to get it just right. I made these burgers this weekend and got the 👍 from everyone. Now it's time to share with you guys!

I don't like eating processed veggie burgers but sometimes, due to time constraints, etc., that's the only option. However, because this recipe is SO easy, I will no longer be buying Beyond Meat and will just be using real ingredients to create my veggie burgers. I love creating recipes knowing that all the ingredients are 100% the real deal. :) 

Here you go...


  • 1 can organic black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 Persian cucumber or just a small cucumber
  • 1/2 small white onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 box of Simple Mills garlic crackers chopped finely for crumbs
  • salt to taste
  • handful of chopped cilantro (optional)
  • 1 egg


  1. In a food processor, add the beans to chop OR smash beans with a fork.
  2. Add all the ingredients except crumbs and egg into the food processor or chop everything and add to the mashed beans.
  3. Scoop into a bowl and mix in the egg and crumbs.
  4. Make 4 patties. Warning: It will be sticky!
  5. Refrigerate patties for 30 minutes before putting on the grill or cooking in a skillet.
  6. Cook for about 6 minutes on each side.

Add all your favorite burger fixins' and boom, a 💣 homemade veggie burger!
