    I Can't Believe It's Healthy's Note:

    This is the first veggie burger I have ever tried and I was very impressed. I am not vegetarian, But I really enjoyed these! I don't know how these compare up to other black bean burgers, but I know these are super cheap, healthy, and very yummy! I found this recipe somewhere on Google and changed it to my tastes. I don't think they will hold up enough to be just thrown on the BBQ because these are soft burgers, but if you refrigerate your leftovers they are nice and firm and work in the oven or BBQ the next day after they were fried. Don't be scared to lightly fry these because they are so low fat anyways, so you still aren't hurting yourself! Enjoy!

    My Private Note


    Serves: 3



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In a large bowl, mash the beans until almost smooth (or puree with the onions).
    2. 2
      Add onions and the rest of the ingredients, except the oil, adding the flour a tablespoon at a time until the mixture is at your desired consistency.
    3. 3
      Form bean mixture into flat patties and fry patties in a small amount of oil until slightly firm.
    4. 4
      Serve topped with hummus or a Greek feta salad salad dressing, spread on a whole wheat bun. I tried these with the usual ketchup and they weren't nearly as good -- trust me.

      Must have left something out. Burger was very bland and limp. I will try again because I want a recipe for a great black bean burger.

      So much flavour for so little effort. I put everything except the flour into the food processor and mixed. I found that it held together without the flour so I skipped it altogether. I used Mrs Dash original blend for the seasoning salt. I served these two ways. First as a regular burger with all the topping and second as a wrap. For topping I set out grated carrot, corn, feta cheese, Thai sweet chili sauce green onion and tomatoes. I used my ice cream scoop to measure so they were on the smaller size, but perfect for the wraps. My kids even loved these. Thanks for the recipe.

      Wow, I am impressed with these! First off, they take NO time to prepare; in fact I had them done early enough to refrigerate for a while whilst I worked on side dishes (I think this aided the frying process!). I used one whole can of beans and doubled everything else to make 5 patties. I realized I was out of onion powder, so I just used a few shakes of onion salt and decreased the season salt a bit. I didn't actually measure the spices, just tasted as I went. Even toddler DS went to town on his, as long as I covered it in ketchup LOL. For myself, I discovered that these go from "good" to "absolutely delicious" by adding barbecue sauce and a few slices of avocado to the sandwich! I'm sure Greek toppings would be yummy, too, but I've got to highly recommend that avocado! Made for Healthy Choices ABC tag.
