Why You’ll Love Veggie Burgers

These vegan black bean pecan burgers are relatively easy to make and the flavor is out of this world! I like adding the pecans because it creates a “meatier” taste to my bean burgers. Also, a little bit of fat (that comes from the pecans) goes a long way to making you feel full longer.

Feeling full, my friends? That’s a big deal because it means I get a little break from thinking about food…for a change.

Also, the black beans add a lot of fiber which is great for your microbiome. Everything is all about the gut flora these days. Sure, you can take probiotics, drink kombucha, and eat lots of fermented food. And you can also eat black bean burgers! Yes, that’s right. Of course, fiber goes a long way toward creating a healthy gut too.

But let’s get back to flavor. Because, I like to make a double batch of these flavorful black bean pecan burgers and freeze some of them. That way I can have a delicious, savory, healthy burger within minutes.

How to Make Black Bean Burgers

It’s so easy to make these easy black bean burgers. Begin by heating your oven to 250F and prepare a baking dish by giving it a quick coating of vegetable spray.

Place 1 can of black beans, rice, ground flax seeds, pecans, nutritional yeast flakes, dehydrated onions, garlic powder, cornmeal, flour, salt, and chili powder in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse for several seconds then use a spatula to push the ingredients down. Pulse again. The mixture will be very thick.

Add the second can of drained black beans and pulse again to combine. The mixture will still be thick, but it should be a spreadable consistency. Next, add a tablespoon or two of water if needed.

Heat 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil in a skillet. Make 3 to 4 black bean patties from the mixture and place these in the skillet to brown. While the bottom of the black bean patty is browning, sprinkle the top with a little bit of salt and pepper. Continue to cook the patties for 3-5 minutes, until brown. Flip and cook to brown the other side of burgers, then place in your prepared baking pan.

Place the sautéed patties in the oven for 10 minutes. You can do this in batches by placing the patties in the oven while you’re browning the next batch of patties. The temperature is low enough that it won’t hurt if the first batch of patties stays in the oven a little longer.

Once done, allow the patties time to cool a little before serving so they can firm up to a desired texture.

Finally, place each of one of the veggie burgers on a bun and dress with sliced tomatoes, lettuce and Vegan Mayo. Enjoy!
