Black Bean Burgers

Some of the best burgers you will ever eat!   I made these delicious and nutritious sliders for the clean-eating cleanse victory party and the participants loved them.  Best served on a sprouted bun with sprouts, sliced tomatos, avocado and Veganaise.


veggie burger


Makes 25 small burger patties

2 tablespoons coconut or olive oil
6 cloves minced garlic
1 yellow onion,
1 green bell pepper, diced
2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
6 tablespoons ground flax seed
2 cups cooked brown rice
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons cumin
1/4 cup nutritional yeast (probably optional but I think it adds good flavor)
Sea salt to taste (I used 1 teaspoon)

  • Heat the oil over medium heat.  Add garlic, onions, and bell pepper.
  • Cook until the veggies soften (about 5 minutes).  Remove from heat.
  • Mix in remaining ingredients.  Mash the beans to form a chunky mixture.
  • Place in refrigerator, covered, for 30 minutes to allow chia seeds to absorb the excess moisture.
  • Form the mixture into 20-25 small patties.  Place patties on nonstick pan (over medium heat) for about 5min or until browned on each side.
