Black Bean Burgers

You know that craving you get for a huge juicy pub burger? That one with the really big white bun and comes with a side of those delicious french fries? This recipe is for crushing those cravings!

I know that vegetarian options can be a little scary if you’re not really into them – so many people think vegetarian = sauce drenched chopped up veggies & rubbery bland tofu – think again! Although I am not a vegetarian, I try to incorporate vegetarian meals into my meal plans as often as possible, which isn’t as often as it should be! This is one of my favourite burger recipes (coming from a born and raised beef-lovin’ girl) and so I really hope you enjoy!


2 cans (36 oz total) black beans, drained and rinsed

2 cups portabella mushrooms, cut into small pieces (optional)

1 cup fresh broccoli, minced

bean burger blog1/2 red onion, minced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tbsp steak spice

1 tbsp worcestershire

1/2 cup bread crumbs

2 eggs

1/2 parmesan cheese

Olive oil


  1. In a large bowl, mash half of the beans. Add in the rest of the black beans, mushrooms (if using), broccoli, onion, garlic, spice, & worcestershire. Mix!
  2. Add the bread crumbs, eggs, and cheese until combined. I suggest using your hands, you are making burgers after all!
  3. Using your hands, form burgers (if they aren’t sticking you can add more bread crumbs) and set aside on a plate
  4. Add 1-2 tbsp of olive oil to a non-stick pan and dry burgers for approximately 3-5 minutes on each side (until browned)

I have made these and served them in regular burger buns, but I prefer to eat them on their own! They are great with a side of hummus!
