Not another bean burger

What you need: 

1 cup dry quinoa 2 cups water 2 jalapenos, roughly chopped 2 carrots, roughly chopped 3 stalks celery, roughly chopped 3 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained 2 cups oats 2 tablespoons paprika 2 tablespoons garlic powder or minced garlic pinch salt (I used raw pink salt) 2 tablespoons flax oil, as needed (I used organic cold pressed olive oil)

What you do: 

1. To begin, add quinoa to pot with water, and bring to boil. Cover and simmer until done, about 15 minutes. Put jalapenos, carrots, celery into food processor. Grind into small bits. 2. When quinoa is cooked, put beans, veggie bits, and oats into same bowl and squish with a big spoon. Add spices and garlic. 3. Add flax, and mash all ingredients (except oil) together. Form into patties. Cook in oil until golden on each side. Yum! See more of my recipes here: Source of recipe: I wanted a new burger recipe, so I made a huge batch and we keep them in the freezer. To reheat, just throw onto your cast iron skillet!

I just threw down a batch of these delicious looking burgers! I used red quinoa for color, and I added mushrooms & fresh garlic in with my veggie mix. I am currently freezing them. The recipe yielded approximately 22 medium sized burgers. I can not wait to make them for dinner tonight, they look amazing! THANKS FOR THE RECIPE!!!


I thought these were great. I didn't have much issue with them staying together....they DID :) I didn't have 3 cans of black beans, so I used 1 can of kidney and cooked some red lentils to make up the difference. They were GREAT. My boyfriend loved them. The only thing I would change, IF I changed, would be to add more spice, even though they were flavorful on their own. As far as others having issues with them falling apart, what I did was had the pan on med high and made sure they got a little crust on the first side before I flipped them. Flipping them too hard caused one to crack. I will SOOOO make this again!


Frying these was a total fail for me, but baking them in the form of "meatballs" worked well.  I baked them at 350 for twenty minutes, rotating them half way.  They were a little crispy out of the oven, but after i put them in a sealed container in the fridge for a while they became more moist.


Totally yummy! Even my 2 year old nephew ate all of his. I did not have any paprika so I just went without. Really good on a thin bun with tomatoes, lettuce and a tiny bit of ketchup. Great recipe to start my vegan diet :)

Tasty and easy! I had trouble with the patty not sticking together very well, so perhaps I'll take @forestdweller's recommendations. I would perhaps have added onions to the mix, but the recipe is definitely good as is. The quantities above made 18 medium-sized patties for me.


I made these last night, but realized too late that I only had about 1/3 cup of oats.  So I used multigrain baby cereal instead!  It actually turned out great, maybe a little looser than intended, but it worked.  I also had only one can of black beans, so I substituted two cans of "chili beans", which is a mixture of black, pinto and kidney beans, and they tasted awesome.  The recipe made about 16 patties (half of which I froze between sheets of saran wrap).  


I've been looking for a good bean burger recipe (I hate all the commercially-processed fake meats out there,) and this is my favorite to date.  My only variation from the recipe was to use red beans, since I prefer them to the black ones.  These were just great, and the addition of paprika was inspired.

They work very nicely as meatballs for spaghetti, as well.


I have tried this recipe twice now. This is my go to meal as a new Vegan. Some nights if my family is eating non-vegan food I can cook myself a veggie burger.

Since this recipe gives you a good amount of leftovers, I made patties and laid them into a cassorole dish. Then I covered it with wax paper and created about three layers of patties, each layer with wax paper in between so that the patties were not touching. I put the casserole dish in the freezer and let them become frozen solid and then put the individual patties in a gallon Ziploc bag. Now whenever I want a burger I just pull one out of the freezer and cook it in a skillet with oil. It's done in about 4 minutes.

Thanks so much for this recipe!



These were absolutely outstanding. My husband and I both adored them! The best thing I've made in a long time. :)

I stuck to the recipe pretty well, I only made a few changes. I didn't have quite enough oats, so I ended up adding about 3 tablespoons of nutritional yeast to the mix. I did not have any celery (and I don't like it), so I just used the carrots and half an onion. I left out the jalapeno and used cayenne pepper and chipotle chili powder instead.

So, so good. I will be making these regularly! Thanks for the great recipe! :)
