Spicy Black Bean Burgers

I’m not vegetarian, but I do like having meatless meals much of the time. I don’t miss the meat at all when you have a delicious spicy flavour like this recipe!

Makes 8 burgers.


  • ½ cup flour of choice
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper, minced
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • ½ medium red pepper, diced
  • 2 cups canned black beans, mashed
  • ½ cup kernel corn
  • ¼ cup panko crumbs
  • ¼ tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 2 Tbsp parsley, minced (optional)


  1. On a small plate, set aside flour for coating. In a medium saucepan, sauté the onion, garlic, oregano, and hot peppers in oil on medium-high heat until the onions are translucent. Add the peppers and sauté another 2 minutes, until pepper is tender. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mash the black beans with a potato masher or fork. Stir in the vegetables (including the corn),crumbs, cumin, salt, chili powder, and parsley. Mix well. Divide and shape into 6 patties.
  3. Lay down each patty in flour, coating each side; cook on a BBQ mat on the grill for 5-10 minutes or until browned on both sides.
