Black Bean Burgs

Makes 9-12 burgers


These burgers are the perfect choice for summer grilling… Or anytime of the year really! Throw the leftover, uncooked burgers in the freezer until next time. We like to always have these healthy burgers in our freezer to take to a BBQ or throw in the oven or on the grill for a quick dinner. These are also delicious in a big green salad with salsa and hummus and enjoyed as a “taco salad”!



2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed

6 tablespoons of water or veggie broth

2 cans of rinsed black beans

1.5 cup of cooked quinoa or another healthy grain (brown rice)

2 cups of raw old fashioned or quick oats

½ of a diced onion

1 tablespoon of diced garlic

1 diced jalapeno (optional)

½ of a red bell pepper, diced (optional)

1 tbsp. of burger or steak seasoning of your choice (we love mushroom seasoning!)

 pinch of salt and pepper

¼ cup of nooch (or a little more)



Mix flax seeds and water (or veg broth) together in a small bowl and let sit for 5-10 minutes

Drain, rinse and mash black beans but leave some whole chunks.

Once beans are mashed, add in cooked quinoa, raw oats, diced onion, garlic, jalapeno, red pepper, your choice of burger or steak seasoning, nooch, flax seed water mixture, salt & pepper and mix ingredients together evenly

Once ingredients are mixed, form into burger patties. If the patties are too sticky or wet then add in more oats or another flaxegg, this will help the ingredients stick together better.

Toss formed burgers on the grill for approximately 7 minutes on each side or throw them in the oven at 400 degrees for 25 minutes, flipping after 12 minutes.


Ness’s special hint: Serve in a lettuce wrap or on whole wheat buns, Ezekiel bread or Daves oil free bread with ketchup, mustard, avocado, tomato, lettuce, pickles, onion and ‘krout if you have it.


Ness’s special hint: Freeze these uncooked and always have them handy for on the go nights when you don’t have time to cook!
