I know it’s not really burger season, but in my world it’s always the right time for burgers.

When it comes to my burger patties, I have a lot of expectations and requirements. They have to be the right texture, a little crispy on the outside and still be very meaty, even though they’re vegan. That’s why, I like to test out a lot of different vegan burger patties, and constanly create new ones to try and outdo my other recipes.
It’s a fun and very tasty challenge, and let’s just say that everyone loves to come over on for burger nights.

This vegan spicy black bean burger is one of my homerun recipes, if I do say so myself. It’s got a deliciously meat like texture and it’s so quick and easy to make. I like to make an extra large batch and freeze any leftover patties for later. It’s so easy to just throw my premade burger patties on the grill if I’m feeling uninspired or haven’t gotten around to shopping that day.

What’s great about this vegan Spicy Black Bean Burger recipe:

  • Super easy and quick to make
  • Meal prep friendly – make the burger patties in advance and freeze for later
  • A huge crowd pleaser – everyone adores these spicy, meaty vegan burgers

Going Spicy

So, if you know me, you will probably also know that I’m really not the biggest fan of very spicy food. But due to peer pressure from my spice loving family, I decided I had to come up with a delicious, spicy burger that would knock everyone’s socks off, without it being unbearably spicy (because I also want to eat).
The great thing about this recipe is, you can adjust the spiciness to fit your taste. Just season with a little extra chili for the people that want that extra spiciness, and add a little hot sauce to their burger dressing.
For me, the spiciness level in this burger is just right. It’s not unbearably hot, where I feel like my tastebuds are dying a torturous death, but it’s still spicy enough to satisfy everyone.

How to serve

I like to serve my burgers with a side of my amazing potato wedges and all the trappings: Avocado, mixed lettuce, BBQ sauce, hot sauce, vegan mayo and tomato slices. Just add anything you want here, and don’t be afraid to go all out. There’s nothing more fun than trying out new burger toppings.
Here’s some of my favorite non-traditional burger toppings that everyone needs to try:

  • Onion rings
  • Pickled onions
  • Mango slices
  • Lime dressing
  • Tofu bacon
  • Coconut bacon

How is this Vegan Black Bean Burger recipe made? It’s so simple. Just:

  • Mix together the ground flax seeds and 5 tablespoons water in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Pour the drained black beans into a food processor along with the quinoa, oats, onions and all the spices. Process until everything is combined and pour in the flax seed egg. Process once more to mix everything together. Place the mixture in the refrigerator to set for 20 minutes.

For Baking:

  • Preheat the oven to 375F.
  • Next, divide the mixture into evenly sized balls and gently press them flat. Place the patties on a baking sheet covered with baking parchment and drizzle a little olive oil on top.
  • Cook the patties in the middle of the oven for 15-20 minutes, carefully flipping them over halfway through.

For searing:

  • Heat a large pan with olive oil and cook the patties for around 3 minutes on each side or until they are golden and crispy (note: if you flip the patties too soon they will stick to the pan).

Making the burger:

  • Once the burger patties are done, assemble your burgers with all the toppings you want. Enjoy.
