Spicy Black Bean Burger

Looking for something to make during this Memorial Weekend? I have the perfect recipe for you. This Spicy Black Bean Burger is easy, flavorful and  inexpensive to make. It only takes 10 minutes to prep and 20 minutes to cook in the oven.

My fiance loves veggie burgers so it was no surprise when I asked him what he wanted me to make for dinner that he quickly answered black bean burger. He loves spicy foods so I decided to make this burger with a little spice but not so much that it is overpowering. The ingredients in this burger that really gives it its spice flavors are the chopped jalapeno, cayenne pepper and cumin powder. For this recipes it only calls for half a jalapeno so if you really like it spicy I recommend using a whole jalapeno verses a half.

To make this recipe you are first going to preheat your oven to 350 degree fahrenheit. Then prep your ingredients. Chop your onions and jalapenos into small pea sizes. I use my black beans from a can so I make sure to drain and rinse my beans a couple times before using them.  After you have prepared you ingredients you are going to make your Spicy Black Bean Burger. Add the black beans to a medium bowl. Using a fork or a potato masher mash your back beans until they become a sticky black bean paste. Then add your chopped onion, chopped jalapeno, garlic powder, cumin powder, cayenne powder, bread crumbs and nutritional yeast to the bowl and mix together.

Before you form your burgers you want to get out a large baking pan, line it with foil, and spray the foil with cooking spray. The cooking spray will ensure that the pattys do not stick to the pan. Then we are going to form our black bean burgers. Using your hands grab a large hunk of back bean mixture and form it into a burger. I like to use about ⅓- ½ cup of black bean mixture  per burger. But the amount of paste all depends on what your preference is on if you like a thick or thin burger.

Place all formed burgers on the pan and bake for 10 minutes. Take burgers out and flip once and place bake again for an additional 10 minutes. Take your burgers out of the oven and add all of your favorite toppings. Some of my favorites include, ketchup, spicy mustard, vegan mayo, lettuce, tomato, onion, avocado and pickles. Yes, I do admit I am that girl that always wants as many toppings as possible! Eat, and enjoy!

If you make this recipe I would love if you would snap a photo of your food and share it with me on instagram @itsallgoodvegan.com. I can’t wait to see how you like
