Quick and Easy Black Bean Burgers — Fo Reals Life

September 12, 2013 September 12, 2013/ Morgan

Here’s some of the easiest vegan black bean burgers you can make – READY? They are 100% inspired by Jeff Novick’s burgers. And I’m 100% in love with these easy burgers!

(makes 8.) 

  • 2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice (I use the trader joes precooked frozen brown rice when I don’t have any leftover cooked brown rice.)  
  • 1/4 cup bbq sauce
  • big pinch salt

In a large bowl smash your beans with a fork. Do not puree. Add in all of the remaining ingredients and mix well. Cover the bowl and refrigerate the mixture for at least 20 minutes.   

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Form mixture into patties (I make about 8 usually) and place on the parchment paper. Bake for 10 minutes and then flip gently with a spatula. Bake for another 10 minutes and let cool a bit. Then eat!  

Store leftover ones in the refrigerator for a few days or you can freeze them. I love having frozen burgers ready for me on those nights where I can’t seem to get the energy up to cook!  

  • Use certified gluten free oats to make this gluten free (and make sure your bbq sauce doesn’t have gluten!)
