Bad Boy Black Bean Burger

We’ve been playing around with black bean burgers for a while & we’re of the opinion that these are the best ones we’ve made so far. A few of our friends tucked into them with us & they were all really impressed at how “meaty” the burgers were.




  • 2 Tins Black Beans
  • 2 Small White Onions (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 Cup Breadcrumbs
  • 3 Tbsp Ground Flaxseed
  • 1.5 Tbsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Dried Basil
  • 1 Tbsp Oregano
  • 3 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 Cup Parsley (chopped)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • Plain Flour for rolling & dusting
  • Vegetable Oil for shallow frying

Burger Dressing

  • Dairy Free Cheese Slices
  • Beef Tomato Slices
  • Egg free mayo (we used garlic mayo by Moodley Manor)
  • Tomato Ketchup
  • Iceberg Lettuce
  • Burger Buns

To Serve

  • Fries


  1. 1.

    Put the patty ingredients in a food processor & whizz them up into a thick paste.

  2. 2.

    Shape the paste into patties - use the plain flour here to make sure they’re well covered in the flour.

  3. 3.

    Fry the patties in shallow, hot vegetable oil for around 3 minutes.

  4. 4.

    Flip the patties half way & cook for a further 3 minutes so they’re well cooked on each side - don’t be alarmed if the patties don’t seem as robust as you think they would have been. They will hold they’re shape but they’ll be slightly more delicate than you’d assume they would be.

  5. 5.

    This is a good time to put the pan in the oven for 5 minutes to firm them up & dry them out a little.

  6. 6.

    Take the patties out of the oven (or off the stove if you decided not to bake them).

  7. 7.

    Build your burgers & serve immediately with fries. BOSH!
