Easy to make Vegan Black Bean Burgers are loaded with flavour and not mushy! They are satisfying, delicious and a tried and true client favourite.


1 tsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
1/3 cup Red onion (chopped)
1/4 cup chopped Red bell pepper
1/4 cup chopped Green bell pepper
1 pepper(s) Red chili pepper (also chile or chilli) (chopped, optional)
2 tsp Lime juice (fresh)
1 tbsp Chili powder
2 tsp Cumin
1 dash Cayenne pepper
1 can (15oz) Black beans, canned (no salt added; drained, coarsely mashed)
1 medium Egg
1/2 cup Rolled oats, dry
3 spray (about 1/3 second) Olive oil cooking spray


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Lightly coat a baking sheet with olive oil spray.
  3. In a small sauté pan, heat the olive oil over a medium setting. Sauté the garlic, onions, and peppers for about 5 minutes or until the veggies begin to brown. Squeeze out the excess moisture of the veggies with paper towels or a dishcloth (this will help hold the burgers together). Place the veggies into a large bowl.
  4. Stir in the lime juice, chili powder, cumin, cayenne, black beans, egg, and oats. 
  5. Form the mixture into 8 patties, place on the baking sheet, and bake for 10 minutes on each side, or until heated through.


Quick Tips:

  • For a soft and moist texture: Once the veggies are cooked, process all ingredients in a food processor or blender before forming the burger patties.
  • Serve on a bun with your favorite condiments and toppings or crumble over a salad.
