Black Bean Burger (Vegan)
from Down to Earth Foods

  • 1 cup dry beans (cooked separately and mashed up)
  • 1/3 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 3 baby carrots, grated (optional)
  • 1/4 cup minced green bell pepper
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
  • 1 tablespoon warm water
  • 3 tablespoons chili-garlic sauce (such as Siracha)- Optional
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 heaped teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon seafood seasoning (such as Old Bay)- Optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 slices whole-wheat bread, torn into small crumbs ( for gluten free option, mix in flax meal, about 3-4 tablespoons)
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour (to bind) or white rice (gluten free) flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  2. Mash black beans in a bowl; add onion, garlic, carrots, and green bell pepper & mix and pour off excess liquid (can be used for gravy).
  3. Whisk arrowroot, water, chili-garlic sauce, chili powder, cumin, seafood seasoning, salt, and black pepper together in a separate small bowl. Stir this mixture into black bean mixture.
  4. Mix whole-wheat bread (or flax meal) into bean mixture. Stir flour, 1/4 cup at a time, into bean mixture until a sticky batter forms.
  5. Spoon ‘burger-sized’ mounds of batter onto the prepared baking sheet, about a 3/4-inch thickness per mound. Shape into burgers- makes 6-8.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until cooked in the center and crisp in the outside, about 10 minutes on each side.
