Any one got a good recipe? I just tried to make one (while starving horrible idea!) And it was so liquidy and gross I threw the whole thing out. Could have been user error as I don’t use the food processor often. Any ideas or suggestions?

Have you tried the black bean burgers from Costco? They’re actually delicious and super easy since you can just take them out of the freezer and cook them up! I’m sure home made ones would be better, but in terms of convenience, these are pretty great.

Mark Bitman has a great and easy recipe. In his book “How to Cook Everything Vegetarian” he has many variations as well. Its a great book

Thank you for the suggestion. I don’t have a Costco membership however and have lots of frozen burgers in the fridge that are probably expired lol. That’s why I wanted to try a fresh one. 🙂

I don’t have a good black bean recipe but I do have a smashing quinoa and beet burger recipe. Serve it with goat cheese and arrugla – perhaps a little pesto too. Delish!!!
225g (8oz) raw beetroot
1 tbsp bouillon stock powder
150g (5½oz) quinoa
1 tbsp olive oil
1 egg white
½ tbsp cumin
pinch of salt
juice of ½ lemon
1 clove garlic, grated
1 tbsp chopped parsley
30g (1¼oz) corn- or gram flour
1 heaped tbsp nutritional yeast
2 heaped tbsp solid coconut oil
Basically you just cook the quinoa, mash the beets (like potatoes) squash all the above together and cook in coconut oil in a hot pan. Serve in a burger or by itself!

I have a good one at home, but I’m at work right now.

I don’t have one one hand but I’ve made many different recipes. Just make sure your beans are dry (not dried, but I mean not wet…dry them well with a paper towel). Also any veggie ad-ins (onions are a big one) add moisture so sometimes it helps to cook the moisture out first. It might take a few times to realize the right texture and dryness they need to be so they don’t fall apart. They should be dry enough they don’t really stick to your hands very much. If it’s a sticky mess it’s too wet. Frozen pre-made ones (even the good ones) don’t compare to homeade veggie burgers!!
I have this book and it’s awesome
I’d go with something like this to start:
The last one looks really good.

I highly recommend the skinnytaste blog black bean burgers. The sauce she has accompanying it is delish! We made up a bunch and froze them for easy grill meals last summer.
