My Basic Black Bean Burger Recipe

January 25, 2018

So I recently posted a picture of a black bean burger on Instagram and was asked for the recipe. I make black bean burgers in multiple different ways which I’ll be sharing with you. However this is what I refer to as My Basic Black Bean Burger. 


  • 1 15.5 oz can of black beans, drained/washed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp of minced garlic or 2 cloves. 
  • 1/4 of a red onion or 1/4 cup of chopped onions
  • 1/4 tsp Paprika
  • pinch salt and pepper for taste
  • 1/2 cup of uncooked 1 minute oats
  • 1/4 cup of almond flour


  1. In a processor, place the black beans, egg, garlic, onion, paprika, salt and pepper and blend.
  2. Pour mixture into a bowl, add oats and almond flour and mix. The mixture should be thick and holds together. 
  3. Form your burgers, you can create about 6 mini burgers, 4 regular sized burgers or two large burgers. Place on a place and let it hang out in the freezer for about an hour. at least 30 minutes. 
  4. Heat a large skillet with some olive oil, then fry the black bean burgers on each side for about 1-3 minutes depending on the size you made them, OR you can place them in the oven set to 375 on a greased pan for 6 – 10 minutes depending on the size you made them. 
  5. That’s it. Let it cool a bit, you can enjoy these in different ways, with a fried egg, and cheese, on a bun, you can wrap it in lettuce and enjoy also. 

We can also make this recipe via sous vide cooking information found at this website. Also check out great sous vide cooking machines here .
