Serves 6

  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 medium bell pepper, any color, quartered
  • 1 medium jalapeño pepper, seeded and halved
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  1. Preheat oven to 300*F. Line a large baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside. In the bowl of a food processor, place all the ingredients except the black beans. Pulse for 30 seconds, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary, until the ingredients are finely chopped but still have a some texture.
  2. Add in 3/4 of the black beans (note: not 3/4 cup, 3/4 of all the beans) and continue to pulse with the food processor for another 30 seconds to 1 minute, until the beans start to break down and ingredients begin to hold together.
  3. Transfer mixture to a mixing bowl and stir in the remaining black beans by hand. Form mixture into six patties and place on baking sheet
  4. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until edges become crisp and patties start to hold together. Allow patties to cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes before placing on bun. Or refrigerate until ready to use, then reheat in the oven or microwave.

Great recipe! I was out of rolled oats, so I used bread crumbs instead, which turned out really well. Looking forward to leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

My vegetarian son is home for the holidays. We made your black bean (cheese) burgers served on buns with fresh guacamole. A hit with the vegetarian and the meat eaters. Will be making these again.

Ditto! These are really good. I made them for a part vegetarian/part meat eater BBQ. So yummy the meat eaters ate them too! Great flavor, simple, healthy. A real keeper!

Delicious! Added extra carrots instead of bell peppers (allergy issues) and they were still really good. Next time might use half an onion, because there definitely will be a next time.

These were GREAT, I made them for 12 hungry, picky american boys and they LOVED them.
