Leave a comment

Hello friends,

I hope you are enjoying your day wherever you may be. Happy Labor Day to those having a little downtime. Today I want to share with you a very special recipe: My best friend’s famous black bean veggie burger.


  • Black beans
  • Garlic
  • Onion
  • Bell pepper
  • Egg
  • Hot Sauce
  • Cumin
  • Turmeric
  • Chili powder
  • Bread crumbs
  • Any burger fixins ya like!

Cook 1/2 a bag of black beans (16 ounces of organic canned beans) and let them cool down. Once room temperature mash them in a bowl – so much fun. Add a couple of garlic cloves, 1-2 bell peppers (depending on size), and 1/2 an onion to the black bean mash. Use your intuition while cooking, don’t fret over exact measurements.

Next put your egg, a tablespoon of chili powder, teaspoon of turmeric, teaspoon of cumin, & tablespoon of hot sauce in a separate bowl… Mix away! Alternate between adding this and breadcrumbs with the black bean mash. Slowly add everything in; gently mixing as you go. Once you’re ready you can make 4 large or 6 regular size patties.

Carefully cook patties roughly 8 minutes on each side. 





While cooking get your fixings ready. We used onions, butter lettuce, avocado, mustard. Optional: 1 slice of cheese.




Put it all together and enjoy! Thank you so much for reading, subscribing, and sharing. Have a lovely day.
