Spicy Black Bean Burgers

5 large or 6 small burgers


1/2 small onion
2 cloves garlic
1/2 t oregano
1 T chopped jalapeno
1 T olive oil
1/2 red pepper, finely chopped
2 cups canned black beans, rinsed and drained and smashed
1/8 cup corn
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/2 t salt
1 1/2 t chili powder
2 T parsley chopped
1/4 cup flour


On a small plate, set aside flour for coating. In a medium saucepan, sauté the onion, garlic, oregano, and hot peppers in oil on medium-high heat until the onions are translucent. Add the peppers and sauté another 2 minutes, until pepper is tender. Set aside.

In a large bowl, mash the black beans with a potato masher or fork. Stir in the vegetables (including the corn), breadcrumbs, salt, chili powder, and parsley. Mix well. Divide and shape into five large or six small patties.

Lay down each patty in flour, coating each side. Cook on a lightly oiled frying pan on medium-high heat for 5-10 minutes or until browned on both sides.

  3. It is tasty, thanks for letting me know you love it! You might try adding some chopped mushrooms to the sauteing veggies for something a little different. Make sure to drain or cook off the water from the mushrooms or saute them separately as a topping! Enjoy.
