Vegan black bean burgers

Mmm.. These black bean burgers are my new OBSESSION! I’m trying meatless burgers a lot but most of them are made with egg. Today I have a burger for you that’s completely VEGAN. It’s very easy to make and believe me, you won’t miss the meat at all. Grab your hands on the recipe down below!

    PREPTIME 10 minutes

    BAKETIME  20 minutes

    PORTION 4 burgers 


  • 1 can of black beans (250 grams)
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 gloves of garlic
  • 50 grams of corn
  • 4-5 tbsp. rolled oats
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • salt & pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Add the chopped onion, crushed garlic and olive oil to a frying pan and sauté on a medium-high heat until the onions are softened.
  3. Place the cooked onions and garlic in a food processor. Add the black beans, corn, smoked paprika, cumin, salt and black pepper. Process until smooth.
  4. Add the oatmeal to the mixing bowl and mix in. If the mix still seems very wet, then add a little more oatmeal.
  5. Divide the batter into four equal portions and form them into burger patties. Roll it to a ball and press it down with your hands or the base of a glass. 
  6. Place the burgers on parchment paper and place in the oven. Bake the burgers for about 15-20 minutes.
  7. When crunchy and cooked, turn off the oven. 
  8. Serve hamburgers on (whole wheat) buns with lettuce, sprouts, sliced tomato, avocado and sliced red cabbage.
  9. Optional: add ketchup or mustard. 
These burgers are looking really good aren’t they??

    They look tasty’!😍 Is it possible to use lentils instead of black beans? Or maybe white beans.

    My stomach does not like black beans… a small amount of white beans are “oké”. But lentils go well. Can I replace the beans? Or would this not work?

      Hi Rosina,

      Good question! I have to be honest with you… I actually haven’t try that yet, but I think it will work! The structure is more or less the same. Maybe you can try just one burger to test. Let me know if it worked out for you!

    Heel leuk recept, ik ga het zeker maken!
    Maar ik heb nooit mais in huis, is dit wel echt nodig om de burger te maken of niet?
    Of is hier misschien een alternatief voor?

      Dankjewel! Wat leuk om te horen! Nee hoor, de mais kun je ook zeker weglaten! Ik zou dan iets meer zwarte bonen en iets meer havermout/havermeel toevoegen! 🙂
