Sophie’s spiced bean burgers

on 11/03/2010

Divine bean burgers with a melted cheese center! Yum!

It has been a while that I wanted to make my own bean burgers. But they had to be perfect. After a while, I created these,…I also spiced them up.
So, I made these real beauties!
1 can of black beans, well rinsed under cold water & well leaked
120 gr of brown beans, out of a can, well rinsed under cold water & well leaked
1 omega 3 egg, beaten loose
50 gr of old-fashioned smaller oats ( no instant!!!)  or gluten-free oats
some sea salt
a few grinds of black pepper
1 level tablespoon of smoked Picanté paprika, Pimentón de la vera
a good drizzle of EVOO, a fruity one & using the oil to fry the burgers
2 scallions, well washed & pad dry, cleaned & cut into rings
120 gr of grated Gruyère cheese
a bit of flour, for your hands, to form the burgers
To serve:
* bread rolls or hamburger buns or gluten-free buns, sliced
* ketchup
* mayonnaise
* sliced tomatoes
* your favourite lettuce leaves
* Baked red onion wedges
1. Take a food processor & place all of ingredients, evenly divided in it. All of the beans, oats, scallions, beaten egg, smoked paprika, a bit of sea salt, a few grinds of black pepper & grated cheese in it. Add a drizzle of the EVOO. Blitz it all together for a few seconds. Blitz again if necessary. Then, take a chopping board & a clean plate.
2. Flour your hands & make burgers of the mix. Reflour your hands again & again. Don’t make the burgers too big otherwise they could fall apart. I make smaller balls & flatten them out a bit so that you will have about 10 burgers of 5 cm x 4 cm, each 1 to 1.5 cm thick. You can make these hours in advance. This is also easier to do. Place cling film over the top & place into the fridge for a few hours, 2 at least.
3. Just before eating, take the burgers out of the fridge. Remove the cling film. Take a large non stick pan & pour 1 thin layer of the fruity EVOO. Heat up on high. Be careful for the hot oil.
When hot & sizzling, add the bean burgers. Fry on one side until the burgers are ready & brown on one side & carefully flip them over. Fry on this side for a few minutes. Adjust the heat if necessary.
4. Serve on your favourite hamburger bun & your garnishes!! Keep the burgers warm.
The cheese is a bit goowie & …they are spiced up & kicking!

  2. Danielle says:

    Sophie! I found you again! I changed my blog and URL and lost all of my links to blogs I was following. I do hope you'll forgive me. Nice to see you're still having fun in the kitchen. I'm following you now and promise to keep up with you.

  3. El says:

    This is great Sophie. I'm a vegetarian and am always looking for meat alternatives. Thanks!

  4. Malar Gandhi says:

  6. Muneeba says:

    Oh gosh Sophie! No American can resist a big juicy burger, u know that! And even though I'm a transplanted Pakistani-Canadian, I just want to dive into your burgerlicious creation 🙂

  7. Hi Sophie! Found your burger recipe on Foodista! Looks like a keeper for sure!

  8. Sophie, was a lovely bean burger. Very healthy too.Sam

  9. What a wonderfully healthy way to get a good dose of protein (and to satisfy a craving for burgers). I'm beyond excited to try this! 🙂

  10. Holy cow – looks amazing – love black beans like this and your version with the smoked paprika – yowza!

  11. Paz says:

    Oh, yum! I'd really love to try this.Continue to have a great week.Paz

  12. Valérie says:

    Sophie, this is amazing! And it's a real coincidence: I was just thinking of what to make for dinner tomorrow, and I wanted it to be vegetable-based. I just saw a printed recipe for bean burgers, but it used garbanzo beans, and I didn't feel like having those… And just now, I saw your beautiful recipe using black beans – my favourite beans in the world! This is perfect!

  13. Sophie, I love vegetarian burgers and falafels and anything of that ilk! This recipe looks perfect – thank you!

  14. What a healthy, protein rich vegetarian meal Sophie! 😀 They sound lovely! 😀

  15. mangocheeks says:

    Sophie.I love the use of black beans in this veggie burger. And it looks like it held well during the cooking process too, many just fall apart.

  16. Claudia says:

    Mouth open "wow." I eat meat but I love veggie burgers. I never make them – I buy them. I am definitely making this – gooey cheese and all.

    I've been meaning to make my own patties for every so long now. I love your version of this and I would so love a bite out of this.

  56. So funny, I was making turkey burgers yesterday and thought about bean burgers. I'm not sure I've ever seen smaller oats before but I haven't looked for them so maybe I just didn't notice.

  57. Jacqueline says:

    My mouth is watering! Reading food blogs when you are hungry is a dangerous, dangerous business!

  58. These look really nice and juicy. Dryness is often a really big problem with bean burgers. I normally don't like them, but this really looks great.*kisses* HH

  59. Those sound delicious! I love bean burgers!

  60. Ruth says:

    So many flavours! looks amazing AND healthy too!

  65. Erica says:

    I have to make this for my vegetarian husband! It looks delicious!

  66. looks great and so healthy thanks for the kind words on the risotto

  67. Velva says:

    Now, if I did not know that you perpared a bean burger, I would have easily mistaken them for a classic American beef burger, 🙂 You did a wonderful job of preparing a healthy and flavorful alternative to the beef burger. Delicious!!!

  68. Carolyn Jung says:

    That looks as meaty and satisfying as a big, bodacious beef burger. But much healthier for you. Bravo for coming up with this.

  69. Gattina says:

    Sophie, thanks the award you gave me earlier. I just done it, you can check it out 😀

  70. They look great! I tried another chef's black bean burgers not too long ago and found them rather mushy, yours look like they would have some chew factor with the oats.

  71. This burger looks amazing…not missing the meat! Do you mean steel cut oats? Do they cook up ok?

  72. Robin Sue says:

    When I saw the picture I thought for sure that was a big beef burger, you had me fooled! Looks Delish!

  73. Wow bean burger this is really fantastic, great when you do not fansy meat that day. Is the weather in Brussels better? We finally have some sunny & warmer days here. Hope Spring is finally here.

  74. Fimère says:

    un hamburger végétarien je le trouve excellentbonne soirée

  75. theUngourmet says:

    Great recipe! I have been wanting to try making a meatless burger. I'd love to try this one! The Gruyere cheese is an awesome addition!

  76. What a great alternative to meat, Sophie. Can't wait to try this, never made vegetarian burger before.

  84. Oh wow Sophie – delicious looking burgers! Nice to have a recipe for vegetarian burger patties that isn't based on chickpeas! Can't wait to try them they look fantastic!

More individuals need to read this and understand this facet of the story. I cant believe youre not more common because you positively have the gift.
