Black Bean Veggie Burgers

READY IN: 36mins
Recipe by Kathy

Costco has a chipotle black bean burger that I love, so I found a basic recipe and tweaked it to meet our tastes. I really enjoy these burgers. They have just enough kick to keep them interesting.

I was so excited to read your description, as I have bean trying out bean burger recipes searching for a Costco bean burger copycat! I'm such a fan of the super easy 'n' tasty Costco black bean burgers, but they are so loaded with salt that I wanted to find an alternative recipe that was healthier. This was perfect! I grilled them in my George Foreman and made many thinner patties (instead of four BIG ones - we're talking really big) to get them cooked through. Made them for myself and my mom (who's also a Costco bean burger lover) and she said they were easily as good (if not better) than Costco's and that this was definitely a "five star recipe." Thanks so much!

  2. In a food processor, pulse bell pepper, onion, and garlic until finely chopped. If needed, strain to remove excess water.
  3. Add beans and egg mixture, pulse until combined. Transfer to a bowl.
  4. Work in bread crumbs and parmesan until mixture is sticky and holds together, adding more bread crumbs if needed.
  5. Divide into four burgers. Grill or freeze for later use.
