Black bean Burger Recipe (Vegan|High Protein)



I was heading from the gym and thinking what could I make that would be quick, easy and a good post workout? I had some black beans and corn on hand, so I decided to whip up some Black bean burgers that are macro-friendly and more importantly, delish!! It is definitely fulling and could be adapted to your own preference. This recipe can be vegan or like my version, which is ovo-vegetarian. Here’s what you’ll need:

– 1 c flour (gluten-free or wheat flour) 

– 1 can black beans

– 1 can corn

– 1 c Quinoa (cooked)

– 1 tbsp flax seed

– 1 egg (use flax meal as an egg substitute) 

– 1 c vegetarian/dairy-free cheese

– seasonings of choice (I used a chipotle blend for more flavor, but you can use Mrs. Dash, onions, garlic, chili peppers, salt, black pepper, jalapenos, fresh green seasoning)

– avocado (optional)

Combine all dry ingredients together, then fold in the wet ingredients. Set aside for 10 minutes. In the interim, heat skillet or pan and grease with olive or coconut oil. After skillet is hot, roll the mixture into balls as big or small as you’d like. Place on skillet and cook each side for 4 minutes, or until completely cooked. Toast burger bun (whole wheat), and top with arugula or greens of your choice, dressing, and of course, your black bean patty. Or you can eat with a salad, depending on your diet/fitness goals. Enjoy!
