Black Bean Burger
Recipe type: Dinner/Vegetarian
Cuisine: Universal
Serves: 6
First time I tasted a vegetarian burger was at Lenny's. And I must say I didn't miss the meat at all. I actually liked it a lot. I figured it can't be to hard to make one, and here is my version of a Black Bean Burger.
  • 1 bag of dried black beans
  • 1 tbsp chicken base
  • 5 cups of water
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup of bread crumbs
  • 1 (4 oz) can of chiles
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp chili
  • 2 tbsp hot sauce
  • ½ chopped onion
  • hamburger buns
  • mayo
  • tomato
  • pickles
  • lettuce
  • cheese of your choice
  1. Rinse and wash the dried beans. Put them in your crock-pot, add 5 cups of water, 1 tbsp of chicken base and the package of seasoning what came with the dried beans. Cook on low for 12 hrs or high 6 hrs. After the beans are cooked I used 4 cups of the cooked beans. The rest you can use for something else like soup. If you don't want to wait that long use 2 (14 oz) can black beans, but do rinse them
  2. Put the cooked beans in the food processor. Add to the smushed beans 1 egg, the breadcrumbs, chiles, cumin, chili, hot sauce and the chopped onion to the beans.
  3. Shape 6 patties, you can either grill them or fry them in a skillet. Remember the beans are already cooked, you just have to brown them.
  4. Toast the hamburger buns, spread some mayo on the buns and top with the burger, cheese and the rest of toppings. You be surprised how good a vegetarian burger can be.
