Black Bean Burger

Recipe by Billy Zac
READY IN: 50mins
YIELD: 6 burgers




  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Combine the beans, onion, oats, chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper, and egg in a food processor. Pulse until chunky, but not pureed. The mixture should be moist, but not sticky. Add a little liquid if needed.
  • Grease a baking sheet.
  • Use your hands, a spoon, or an ice-cream scoop to make patties. Drop these onto the baking sheet.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes, or until the bottoms are nicely colored and lift easily from the baking sheet. Flip and bake for 15 more.
  • You can also broil these burgers, or cook them in a hot cast iron skillet, or on the grill. They cook a lot faster using these other methods, so just be sure to keep an eye on them.
