Simple Black Bean Burger

I came across this recipe yesterday from Happy Herbivore and decided to try it out. Yea, I know, it’s not raw… but it sounded really good, and easy. I love recipes that have 5-6 ingredients. Black bean burgers can be really great and can be really lackluster too. This recipe was in the middle, leaning towards great. I’d definitely make it again for its simplicity. But I don’t know if I would make this for my omnivorous friends… Maybe I’ll jazz it up next time and put some fun additions in, Daiya? Jalapenos?….

  • cup instant oats
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbls yellow mustard
  • 2 tbls ketchup
  • 15 ounces black beans, drained and rinsed


Preheat oven to 400F. Grease a cookie sheet or line with parchment paper and set aside. In a mixing bowl, mash black beans with a fork until mostly pureed but still some half beans and bean parts are left. Stir in condiments and spices until well combined. Then mix in oats. Divide into equal portions and shape into thin patties. Bake for 7 minutes, carefully flip over and bake for another 7 minutes, or until crusty on the outside.
