    Victoria in Fort Wayne's Note:

    My husband and I love these. I serve them on homemade whole wheat buns, topped with some cilantro mayonnaise. I use cooked dried beans, but a can of beans works equally well. Using the dried beans I can make these for less than $0.25 each! Often I triple this recipe and freeze burgers for future use.

    Serves: 4



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Heat 1 teaspoon of the oil over medium heat.
    2. 2
      Add the red onion and garlic to the pan and saute until softened, about 8 minutes and then set aside to cool for a few minutes.
    3. 3
      Combine beans, egg, oats, onion, mixture, chili paste, salt, pepper and cilantro and thoroughly mix and mash until pretty homogeneous, leaving a few whole beans.
    4. 4
      Divide mixture into 4 equal portions and shape into patties.
    5. 5
      Refrigerate patties for half an hour. (This step is not completely necessary but I find it helps hold the burgers together while cooking.).
    6. 6
      Heat 2 tablespoons oil in large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
    7. 7
      Place burgers carefully into the oil, being careful not to crowd the pan.
    8. 8
      After 4 minutes, flip and cook another 4 minutes. They should feel firm to the touch when finished.
    9. 9
      Note: To freeze for later use, after shaping flash freeze and then wrap in plastic wrap. Place wrapped burgers into freezer bag and squeeze out excess air. To cook from frozen, simply heat frozen burgers over medium-high heat on the stove-top, cooking until done.

      Quick, easy, and tasty recipe. I had to make some substitutions due to what I had on hand and the recipe was very forgiving. I used dried onions and garlic and added not only chili paste but additional sriracha as well (I could have easily doubled the heat in this recipe - not too spicy with given measurements). Omitted the cilantro and added cheese after flipping the burger. Doubled the recipe with no problems. Condiments included lettuce, avocado, ketchup, spicy mustard, and mayo. This is one I would make again.

      This was my first attempt at a bean burger. I ended up mixing with my hands, but using a food processor would have made things easier. The patties were quit firm & held together well even while cooking. Other than using Mrs Dash & rinsing the beans I made no changes. Next time I might add more veggies--shredded carrots or zuchinni- and up the seasonings. Made for PAC Fall 09.
