Black Bean Burgers

IMG_5407This is a weeknight staple for us! Paired with sweet potato “fries” and avocado, this meal is packed with protein, complex carbs, and essential fats. I think it’s my favorite recipe of all!

  • 2 cans black beans (rinsed)
  • 1 red pepper chopped
  • 2-3 carrots chopped
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1/2 bulb of garlic chopped (or you can scale down if you’re not a garlic fan) 
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c. bread crumbs (I use gluten free)
  • 1 TB chili powder
  • 1 TB cumin
  • goat cheese
  • avocado
  • whole wheat buns

Combine all ingredients through Cumin. I use my hands and really squish the beans. Using half the batter, form 8 patties. Top with goat cheese and then add another patty. Bake at 375 for 25-30 min.


If serving for others, I serve on a whole wheat bun. But for me, I go bunless. It’s then dairy free and gluten free.
