Easy Black Bean Burger Recipe

We try to have one meatless meal per week in our house, but I find it hard to come up with a variety of good meatless meals.  This was found from The Everyday Veggie on Pinterest, and I modified it to fit my family’s taste.  I served them with a mixed greens salad and they were a hit!  So yummy and simple!

Black Bean Burgers

You’ll need:

(Makes 8 burgers)

1/2 cup brown rice

2 cans organic black beans (drained and rinsed)

¼ tsp black pepper

Dash of salt

1/4 onion, diced

1/2 zucchini, diced

Instructions:

Place the rice in a pan with 1 cup water and bring to the boil

Bring it down to a simmer and place the lid on the pan

Cook until the water is all gone but before the rice burns to the bottom!

Drain the rice and set aside

Fry the onion and zucchini in a little oil with the salt and pepper until the onion is brown

Add in the black beans and cook for 5-7 minutes

Remove from the heat and place 2/3 of the mixture in a blender and blend for a few seconds – no more

Place this back into the pan with the other mixture, add in the rice, and mix thoroughly

Allow the mixture to sit and cool for 10 minutes

Divide into 8 portions and shape into patties

Heat a little oil in a pan, and when hot, place 2 burgers into it

Fry for about 4-5 minutes on both sides, then remove from the pan

Repeat with all the other burgers until they’re all cooked

Store any leftovers in the fridge until they’re needed, or freeze them for later!
