Meatless Monday - Black Bean Burger

Black Bean Burger

We try to at least once a week eat a meatless meal. This is healthier and saves SO much money every month! This week we had Black Bean burgers. A very easy and inexpensive recipe and I love the texture and flavor that they have!! I love them almost (ALMOST) as much as beef burgers.

  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained, divided
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • Salt &black pepper
  • 4 hamburger rolls
In blender, put in onion, garlic, 1 can beans, parsley, egg, red pepper flakes, and pulse to combine. Put into a large bowl and add the other can of beans and bread crumbs, salt & pepper, and mix until well combined.

Divide into patties and cook on hot oiled grill or pan over meduim low heat and cook about 5 minutes on each side or until they are heated all the way through. We buy fresh hamburger buns from our local grocer. And top just like you would any other burger with your favorite toppings. Yummy!!
