Simple Spicy Vegan Black Bean Burgers

Submitted by: NSPEELMAN

Introduction

Making black bean burgers from scratch is super easy and will forever swear you off from the frozen black bean pucks they sell at the grocery store. Making black bean burgers from scratch is super easy and will forever swear you off from the frozen black bean pucks they sell at the grocery store.
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    Black Beans (1 15 oz can)
    1 Jalapeno Pepper
    2 cups quick oats (you may have to play around with the actual quantity of oats -- start with 1/2 a cup and keep adding until you get the consistency you want)
    2 tbsps ground flax seed
    Valentina (or other hot sauce) to taste
    salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Mash the black beans with a fork. Finely dice the jalapeno. Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. Start with a 1/2 cup of oats, but you might want to add more until you get a consistency that holds together well.

Grill or fry in a skillet with a little bit of oil over medium heat. These should take about 5-10 minutes, until heated through. Since it's vegan it won't hurt if it's a little undercooked.

  • I tried 1 cup oats and it was probably a bit too much since they wouldn't hold together. I used bottled jalapenos so I diced those and added liquid from the jar to make the burgers hold together. I made 6 burgers and they were large enough. I liked them! LOVED that they were so simple to make!! - 4/16/12
