Servings 3 Burgers


  • 1 cup Black beans drained and rinsed
  • ½ Green bell pepper finely chopped
  • ½ Small onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves Garlic finely chopped
  • 1 Large egg
  • 4 tablespoon Whole wheat breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon Chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon Ground cumin
  • 1 Sliced Avocado
  • tablespoon Chopped Jalapeno
  • Spicy Mayo as per taste
  • Salt to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • Place the rinsed and drained black beans in a bowl. If required, blot them with a paper towel to remove any extra moisture (Remove as much moisture as you can–if it’s too wet, the burger will fall apart). Place the beans in a large bowl and mash well using a fork.
  • Add the chopped bell peppers, jalapeno, onion and garlic to the mashed beans.
  • Add the seasonings such as chili powder, ground cumin, salt and pepper and combine.
  • Add the beaten egg and mix. Stir in bread crumbs.
  • Form the mixture into 3 or 4 patties.
  • Cook the burger patties using a grill pan for 4-5 minutes on each side.
  • Take the burger buns and layer it with the patty, avocado slices and a good drizzle of spicy mayo.
    In absence of Spicy Mayo, you may use normal Mayonnaise and sprinkle some Chilli Flakes.
    In case you do not have Burger Buns, you may use bread slices as well. Just toast them so that they don't get soggy soon.
  • Refrigerate them for later use.
  • Freeze them in a ziplock bag for a quick weeknight dinner.
