Black Bean and Sunflower Seed Burger


This may just be the perfect veggie burger. I got the inspiration from this awesome vegan food blog called "Oh She Glows". I posted her link below. I tweaked it a bit, adding curry powder and Sriracha hot sauce to brighten it up, un-vegan-ing it (definitely not a word), and omitting a few ingredients. But this combination is not too mushy, does not fall apart, and even the meatiest of meat-lovers will like it (aka my husband and dog).  This is also just in time for the holidays. It is a great break from eating cookies and pumpkin pie for lunch. Unless that is just me.....

Oh she glows veggie burger recipe

Black Bean and Sunflower Seed Burgers

1 cup black beans
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 cup oats
3 tablespoons flax seed
1 egg
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup onion
1 cup grated carrot
1/2 cup parsley
2 garlic cloves
1 teaspoon cumin
1 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon yellow curry powder
1 teaspoon Sriracha hot sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

In a large bowl add rinsed and drained black beans. Using the back of a fork mash beans so they are slightly mashed.

To that add bread crumbs, oats, flax seed, egg, and sunflower seeds. 

Dice onions, mince garlic, and chiffonade parsley. Add to bowl, along with shredded carrot. Mix well, then add all of your spices, sauces, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Mix well again.

Form into patties 1/2 inch thick and about 3 inches wide. Heat medium pan with 1 tablespoon olive oil to medium heat. 

Fry patties 4-5 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. 

These burgers have texture, taste, and don't fall apart! What else do you need in a veggie burger?

  1. Really good burger! I used flax eggs in place of eggs and doubled the amount of egg. I also mashed the black beans a bit more to keep the burgers from falling apart.
