Spread out the drained canned black beans onto a lined baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes. This prevents the black bean burgers from tasting like mush. FLAVOR. Besides sautéed garlic, onion, pepper add a little cumin, worcestershire sauce, smoked paprika, feta cheese, and chili pepper that will turn black beans into the best black bean burger.


  • 2 (14 ounce) cans black beans, drained, rinsed, and patted dry
    1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
    3/4 cup finely chopped bell pepper (1/2 of a pepper)
    1 cup finely chopped yellow onion (1/2 of a large onion)
    3 garlic cloves, minced (about 1 Tablespoon)
    1 and 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
    1 teaspoon chili powder
    1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
    1/2 cup bread crumbs or oat flour
    1/2 cup feta cheese
    2 large eggs
    1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    2 Tablespoons ketchup, mayo, or BBQ sauce
    pinch salt and pepper


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190°C). Grease cookie sheet or line with parchment paper and set aside.
    Preheat oven to 300°F (150°C). Spread beans evenly onto a lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes until slightly dried out.
    Meanwhile, sauté olive oil, chopped pepper, onion, and garlic over medium heat until peppers and onions are soft,and no moisture left about 5-6 minutes. Place in a large bowl or in a food processor with the remaining ingredients. Stir or pulse everything together, then add the black beans. Mash with a fork or pulse the mixture, leaving some larger chunks of beans.
    Form into patties– about 1/3 cup of mixture in each.
    To bake: Place patties on a lined baking sheet and bake at 375°F (191°C) for 10 minutes on each side, 20 minutes total. To grill: Place patties on greased aluminum foil and grill 8 minutes on each side. Heat temperature is personal preference as all grills differ. Generally, black bean burgers should grill on medium-high heat about 350°F (177°C) – 400°F (204°C).
    Serve with your favorite toppings.

    Make ahead tip: Cooked or uncooked black bean burgers freeze wonderfully! Stack between parchment paper in a freezer container or zipped-top bag. Thaw in the refrigerator and reheat to your liking or, if uncooked, cook according to instructions.
