BM #100 Week 2 Day 3 -

To end this series of recipes starting with the letter 'B', I have here black bean burger patties which I make ahead and freeze so my kids have home made burger patties when the craving for a burger strikes them.

I am sorry for the picture of the frozen patties as I seem to have misplaced the actual pictures. The actual burger picture was found in my phone so I didn't have to assemble the burger for this post again. I pulled out the frozen patties and took a picture for this post :).

Ingredients - 

*Black Beans soaked, pre treated and boiled 1 - 1 1/2 cups
Rolled Oats coarsely ground 1/2 cup
Onions finely chopped 1/2 cup
Bell Pepper/Capsicum finely chopped 3 Tbsp
Almonds Crushed 1/4 cup
Garlic 1 clove + Green Chillies 4 crushed
Salt as needed
Flax meal 1 Tbsp + warm water 1 Tbsp
Oil 1 Tbsp
Cumin seeds 1/2 tsp
For the Burgers - 
Buns as many as needed
Mustard, Mayo, Hot Sauce, Guacamole, Cheese, Onion slices, Tomato slices as needed (Add the condiments as per preference).

*Canned Black Beans also work - Just rinse and dry the beans. Baking the rinsed beans for about 10 minutes to make them dry faster is also a great idea.

I added 1/4 cup of roasted gram powder as I felt the dough was a little runny. 

Method Of Preparation -

Mash the boiled/baked black beans.

Coarsely crush the rolled oats and almonds.

Powder flax seeds and mix in 3 tablespoons of warm water and set aside for a couple minutes.

In a heated pan, add oil and cumin seeds. Saute onions until they are translucent and saute bell peppers for a minute or two.

In a mixing bowl, add the mashed black beans, the sauteed onions and bell peppers. Add in salt, crushed garlic, crushed green chilies, crushed oats and almonds.

Knead to make a stiff dough. [I added some roasted gram powder as the dough was a little runny].

Divide into 10-12 equal portions. Shape each portion into a patty.

In a heated griddle, drizzle oil and shallow fry the patties on both sides until they are golden brown.

Remove from heat and assemble the burgers.

The patties can be frozen and reheated when needed.

To assemble the burger, toast the burger buns, place the bean patty on the base, drizzle the condiments, layer the vegetables using, top it with the other slice and serve.


Preparation Time 25 minutes
Makes 10-12 patties


  1. Oats might have added some texture to the patties. I should use it next time I try patties with beans. Freezing the patties is a neat idea.

  10. This is surely a sinful treat Harini, having frozen patties surely help so much!

  11. The black bean burger looks so delicious Harini. Having them ready in freezer would make burger making so easy. Great idea.

  13. Your black bean burger recipe looks just perfect. Adding crushed almonds is a great idea. I will have to try your recipe some time.

  15. Such a healthy and nutritious patties and kids would love to eat them. Never tried freezing them and that is good idea for busy days.

  16. Suma Gandlur Says:
  17. Healthy and nutritious ones. The frozen patties come handy when one suddenly craves for burgers and homemade means we can customize and control what goes into it. We used to stock on the store bought soy patties until a few years ago but no one seems to be interested in homemade burgers now. :)
