Makes: 4 servings


Burger Ingredients

  • 1 (16 oz) can organic black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 organic red bell pepper, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallions
  • 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 3 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 jumbo organic free-range egg
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free breadcrumbs or oats
  • 1 small avocado, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • Lettuce and tomato for additional toppings (optional)
  • Gluten-free buns or portobello mushrooms heated in avocado oil for a bun replacement (tastes great with Vegenaise sauce by itself as well!)

Chipotle Mayonnaise Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 tablespoons Vegenaise
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chipotle pepper and a hint of adobo sauce to taste


  1. Combine mayonnaise and chipotle and set aside.
  2. Dry the beans well after washing; extra moisture keeps the burgers from forming together. 
  3. In a medium bowl, mash beans with a fork until thick and pasty.
  4. In a food processor, finely chop bell pepper, cilantro, onion, and garlic. Then add oats or breadcrumbs, followed by egg and spices.
  5. Place into mashed beans in step 1.
  6. Divide mixture into four patties with slightly oiled hands and place onto a flat surface covered with wax paper. (If it’s too wet, chill the mixture in the refrigerator for 15-25 minutes or add another tablespoon of oats.)
  7. Freeze burgers.
  8. Heat a lightly greased skillet, preferably with coconut oil, to medium heat and cook frozen burgers for about 7 minutes on each side. You can also cook them on a grill over medium heat.
