Servings 12 Burgers


  • 30 oz Can of Black beans, rinsed
  • 1 Red Pepper, deseeded and cut into chunks
  • 6 Green Onions
  • 1/2 Cup Cilantro
  • 5 Cloves Garlic
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 2 tbsp Cumin
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 Cups Quick Oats
  • 1 16 oz Can of Black beans, rinsed


  1. Mash the large can of beans to a rough paste consistency

  2. Add red pepper, onion, cilantro, and garlic to a food processor and buzz it until it is a small dice.  Add the eggs, then the oats and seasonings.

  3. Add the veggie mixture to the black beans paste and add the smaller can of bean, stir well.  Refrigerate for about an hour.

  4. On a parchment or wax paper lined cookie sheet drop large scoops of mixture and round it out with a spatula.  To make 12, make them about 4 inches across and half an inch thick.  Move sheets to the freezer and allow them to freeze overnight.  You can cut the paper under the patties to keep them separated and store them in Tupperware or a freezer bag.

  5. When you are ready to cook them, spray a hot pan (I used cast iron on medium hot heat) with non-stick spray and place frozen patty in pan.  Cook for 7 minutes per side, feel free to add cheese, condiments, bun or bread... The possibilities are endless.
