Why I Love This Recipe

I came up with this recipe after wanting to make my own veggie burgers. I am not vegetarian, but I really enjoy them, so I decided to search the web. After looking at dozens of recipes, I decided to make my own using the knowledge I had gained. These will please anyone, even picky eaters like my husband! Feel free to add unconventional burger toppings. Raw spinach and cilantro taste great with this!

32 oz canned black beans, well drained and mashed

1 egg or egg substitute

1/2 med. red bell pepper, diced

3/4 c. zucchinni, shredded

1/4 large red onion, finely diced

1 tsp. garlic powder

1 1/2 tsp. cumin

1/2 tsp. chili powder

pepper and natures seasoning to taste

1 1/2 c. oatmeal


Mash black beans using a potato masher.

Mix in raw egg or substitute and spices.

Add all vegetables and mix well. Stir in oatmeal (with hands, if necessary). Shape into pattys and cook in a frying pan with oil on med. high.

3 minutes per side.

Place on burger buns with your favorite toppings and enjoy!

Questions, Comments & Reviews

This is very easy and very tasty. I wasn't sure whether to use quick oats or traditional. i only had traditional and cut the oatmeal to 1 cup as it seemed dry. still seemed dry, so i added a bit more egg. delicious. it makes a lot !! the patties were easier to form and stuck together better after sitting in the fridge all night. these are our new veggie burgers. thanks so much. we have had this dish at restaurants and loved it. soooo cheap to make at home.
