Black Bean Burgers

Black Bean Burgers

Since moving to the Netherlands, we had been craving some of our favourite things like vegetarian burgers. I made this recipe way back in October (!) so I’m a bit fuzzy on the details. I do know that it was pretty easy and we enjoyed it! We served it with mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli so it was similar to the steak dinners we used to make (minus the steak! :))

Black Bean Burgers via Fat Free Vegan Kitchen


  • 1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup cooked rice (recipe called for brown, we used Basmati)
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup of onion
  • 3 tsp of chili powder
  • pinch of cumin
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp corn starch


  1. Saute the onion and peppers in a tsp of water (or oil if you choose) until softened.
  2. Mash the black beans and then add the rest of the ingredients to the mash along with the onion and pepper.
  3. Preheat a skillet on medium low heat. Form the ingredients into patties then begin to cook them on the skillet.
  4. Cook until browned on each side.

This recipe was pretty good! We unfortunately didn’t have burger fixings but we enjoyed these patties on their own. We made around eight I believe and they were really good reheated. 🙂
