The Easiest Black Bean Burger Recipe in the World
Yields 6 patties
Per 1 burger
1 15-ounce can black beans, drained
3 tablespoons minced onions
1 teaspoon salt
11⁄2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons parsley
1 teaspoon chili powder
2⁄3 cup flour
1⁄4 cup oil for pan-frying
Process the black beans in a blender or food processor until halfway mashed, or mash with a fork.
Add minced onions, salt, garlic powder, parsley, and chili powder, and mash to combine.
Add flour, a bit at a time, mashing together to combine. You may need a little bit more or less than 2⁄3 cup. Beans should stick together completely.
Form into patties and pan-fry in a bit of oil for 2–3 minutes on each side. Patties will appear to be done on the outside while still a bit mushy on the inside, so fry them a few minutes longer than you think they need.
