Nice and simple recipe for a black bean burger. I usually serve on rye bread with some organic ketchup and sometimes lettuce and onion. Be aware that these are a tad spicy because of the cayenne pepper, but you can just use a little less if the spice doesn't suit you.


1 can black beans
1 cup cooked brown rice
¼ tsp cumin
1 tsp cayenne pepper
2 tbsp ground flax seed
1 tbsp arrowroot powder (or cornstarch)


Preheat oven to 300°. Combine all in a food processor and blend into a thick paste. Form into patties with hand and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Cook for 20-25 minutes, flipping once. I find 20 minutes usually does it, but my last batch could have benefited from the extra five. Makes 5-6 medium burgers.

I like the simplicity and price of the ingredients! I saved this to my hard drive.

Sounds good! Have you tried freezing these at all? How do they hold up and reheat if so? Those would be nice to have on hand.

I haven't tried freezing them. I make two batches now a days, and even then they only last two days, haha. They reheat rather well from the fridge though.


I'm going to try to take a picture of the stuff I make, because these are rather good looking.

thanks so much for posting that! I've been intimidated to try making a burger, but that sounds so easy, and delicious!

Seems like a great recipe. This (and oatmeal) is basically the only way I use grains now these days. I only have one question, what is parchment paper?

I'd love to see a pic. My girlfriend has tried a few times to make decent burgers. She wants to try these tomorrow.

I usually add some sort of soy sauce (tamari or regular) when I do burgers, not su much for flavour as for coloring. I think some chopped red or yellow onions or onion powder would make a great addition to these burgers.

It's like wax paper, but safe for the oven. It's just paper that's non-stick and safe for the oven. Saves clean up time and where I live in a household with people who are non-vegan, it makes it safer for me (since my food never touches the sheet).

I made these for dinner tonight, with a few more spices and things. They turned out really well. Normally when we try to make burgers like this they don't firm up. These got nice and crusty on the outside and stayed together pretty well. The insides were still a little mushy. Overall they were good and I'll probably make them again. Thanks for the great recipie.

That sounds great! I am going to have to give it a shot sometime.
