Easy Meaty Vegan Black Bean Burgers, which are super quick to make, require only a couple of ingredients and taste amazing! They have got a really good dose of protein and fiber in them, making them an incredibly good plant-based meal.
They can be made oil-free if baked, and they can also be made gluten-free if you use GF oats!
What I like the most about these black bean burgers, is that they taste really meaty! The walnuts in them make that magic happen!
These burgers are NOT mushy, which is the best part about them. Just make sure that you don’t over-blitz the mixture!
HOW TO USE BLACK BEANS:
I always have black beans on hand at home. They are a really versatile ingredient and I think my favorite kind of bean. I think out of all the beans they have the most flavor and they are incredibly versatile.

Easy Meaty Vegan Black Bean Burgers
- 14 oz/400g can of black beans drained and rinsed
- 1/2 cup/55g walnuts
- 1/2 cup/50g of rolled oats use gluten-free if needed
- few tbsp/60g of cooked beetroot for color optional
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1 large clove of garlic
- 1 tsp of onion granules
- 1 tsp of salt
- 1/2 tsp of cumin
- Add all of the ingredients in a food processor and blitz. You may need to stop and scrape off the sides a few times. It's best to keep it course, you don't want a puree. Taste the mixture to check to season and add more salt/spices if necessary.
- Refrigerate for about 15 minutes. This helps it firm up a little and makes it easier to shape the burgers.
- Shape into 4 patties, pressing them together really really firmly then using the palm of your hand press down on the top of each one to make it a burger shape. If they crack a bit just press them gently back together.
- Place the burgers on a lined baking tray with parchment paper and bake them in the oven on 375°F/180C until heated through and a bit crusty on the outside (about 25 minutes).
Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
Once hot add the burgers making sure there is plenty of space around each one to enable you to flip them later. If you can't fit them all in, have your oven on low (300 degrees F/155C), and once the first ones are done keep them warm in there until the rest are ready.
Fry them for about 5 minutes on each side or until a nice golden crust forms. Store the cooled leftover patties in the fridge for up to 5 days.
Ideally, reheat them in the oven.
