Do you want to try making your own veggie burgers at home? We got you.
We created this delicious DIY black bean veggie burger recipe that will hit the spot. Everything can be done in 5 easy steps. Watch the video below to get started.
Black beans serve as the base of this veggie burger. Beans are an excellent source of dietary fiber to help keep our digestive tracts running smoothly. They are also a great source of plant-based protein. To top it all off, beans are a good source of iron. Iron helps to carry oxygen and nutrients to our blood cells, which help keep our cells healthy.
To make these, you’ll need to start by combining black beans, chopped onions, chopped red pepper, panko bread crumbs, garlic, ketchup, whole-wheat flour, olive oil, and a dash of cayenne in a food processor or blender. Pulse it a couple of times to make sure it is all mixed well to develop a smooth consistency. If you are having trouble blending the mixture, add some water, stir the mixture with a spoon, and then continue pulsing. Once you are done blending, scoop the mixture into a bowl. Form 4-5 patties with your hands and sprinkle each side with extra breadcrumbs. Bake at 450F for 15 minutes or until crisp and brown.
Veggie burgers are a great idea to make the patties ahead of time and store them in the freezer! They are perfect for those busy days without sacrificing healthy eating. Have you ever made your own veggie burgers? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
- 1 cup of black beans
- 1/4 cup of finely chopped onions
- 1/4 cup of finely chopped red bell peppers
- 1/4 cup of panko bread crumbs
- 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons of ketchup
- 2 tablespoons of flour
- 2 teaspoons of olive oil
- 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender.
Pulse a few times to mix well. (If the your machine is not blending well, add a few spoons of water and continuously stir the mixture with a spoon while the blender/food processor is off to get a consistent texture. Then continue pulsing)
After you get a consistent texture, scoop out the mixture into a bowl.
Form 4-5 patties with your hands. Sprinkle each side with some extra breadcrumbs for sturdiness. If you plan on eating them up right away, lightly oil a baking sheet and
bake for 15 minutes on each side at 450F or until crisp and brown.
If you plan on storing them, you can either wrap each patty individually in plastic, or you can line each one with wax paper, and then stack them in a container. Then they can go right into the freezer! Whenever you’re ready, just de-frost and bake them.
would other small additives, such as hemp hearts (seeds), flax seeds (ground or whole), whet germ, chia seeds, etc., change the consistency of the burgers?
also, i made these tonight from your recipe and they are bomb!
I’m sure they would change the consistency. Not sure if it would be for the better or worse, but try it out! And let us know 🙂
Just made these for the second time tonight, love them! They are true to their description, “Spicy”! This recipes is down in the books, and now I REFUSE to buy the overpriced and over-proccessed veggie burgers I used to buy from the store. Thanks so much for this ladies!!
You’re so welcome! I actually just ate one today! hahahha They’re so good

I really want to try out this recipe but I have one question. Im not a big fan of ketchup. Can you recommend something I can substitue for it?
Are you into mustard? That can work too. Or some kind of pasty texture 🙂
What kind of black beans do you recommend?
I recommend purchasing dried beans, and doing your own soaking and cooking
I made these last tonight and they were amazing. There are so many recipes for black bean burgers out there I am so happy I chose this one! I can’t wait to make more of your recipes. Keep giving us great recipes ladies!
Awesome! So glad they worked out for you. Stay tuned for more awesome recipes!
Just made a batch of these to get me through finals madness. Thanks for the quick, healthy recipe to help me be good to myself amidst all the end of semester stress!
yay! we get so happy when people tell us they try out our recipes. xoxo
I finally tried out the recipe and I’m so happy that I did. I used a little bbq sauce instead of ketchup and I also added some cooked brown rice to the mixture. It came out awesome.
I did cook them on the stove with olive oil…I like the crunchiness from cooking them in the pan. I’ll try baking them and see how I like them.
yumma! a+ for creativity 😉
Just made these for the first time but they came out a little too runny and couldn’t work with it is there any reason for that?
Oh no! Maybe you added too much water for the blender? The breadcrumbs should help to make them more sturdy.
