These black bean burgers are delicious and vegan. The perfect alternative to regular beef patties, delicious and healthy!

Black bean burgers are a great option for a quick meal at a backyard BBQ, or for vegan or vegetarian guests. You don’t have to skip meat to enjoy black bean burgers, as they’re delicious on their own. This recipe is modeled after the Morningstar Chipotle Black Bean Burger patty sold at Costco, which is a favorite of many. Don’t like spicy food? no problem! The chipotle pepper in this recipe is completely optional, though we do like the extra heat and flavor it adds to the recipe.

How do you keep black bean burgers from falling apart?

When making black bean burgers, it is important to use a binder to keep the patty from falling apart. This recipe uses eggs to bind the mixture together. Another important factor in holding the patty together is how finely chopped or mashed all the ingredients are. Make sure all ingredients are finely chopped, which is why it’s best to use a food processor or blender to make black bean burgers. When cooking on the grill or in a pan, be sure to grease well to keep the burgers from sticking.

What can I use instead of eggs to make these vegan?

If you want to make a vegan black bean burger, you will need to replace the eggs called for in this recipe. You can make an egg replacer using flaxseed and water, which is a popular and effective option. To replace 1 egg, simply stir 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed with 3 tablespoons warm water. Let it sit until it gels, then you can use it in recipes. Since this recipe calls for 2 eggs, you will need 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed and 6 tablespoons water.

Frozen Black Bean Burger Instructions:

Black bean burgers freeze well. To freeze, place on a parchment-lined baking sheet, then place the tray in the freezer for 4-6 hours, until the patties are frozen solid. Once frozen, remove them from the baking pan and transfer to an airtight container or a resealable plastic freezer bag for long-term storage. These patties will keep for 2-3 months in the refrigerator. When ready to serve, simply thaw overnight in the refrigerator or on the counter at room temperature. There are no ingredients in this recipe that will spoil at room temperature, so there are no food safety concerns. After thawing, continue cooking as directed in the recipe.

Black bean burgers are best eaten fresh. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Reheat in a skillet over medium-low heat or in the microwave in 30-second increments until heated through.
