These Black Bean Burgers get some of the the highest reviews and best feedback. People love that the patties are firm and can even be cooked on the grill without falling through.
I just made these burgers for the first time. They hold together wonderfully without having tweak the recipe! My husband loved the southwestern favors in the burgers. We give these an A plus!”–Deborah
I love these burgers, I have made them over and over again. I eat them on a Angelica sprouted grain bun, toasted with all the toppings. The next day I break a burger up and put in a salad, love it!”—Linda
Because vegan bean burgers don’t have eggs in them, many fall apart easily or just mush together when eaten in a bun. But, that won’t happen with these. It’s the rolled oats that help them hold together.
My favorite way to cook them is in the oven or in my non-stick frying pan. Since they are not made with meat, they of course won’t be as firm as regular burgers, but they can still be tossed on the grill with great success.
The patties even freeze well if you want to make a big batch and have them on-hand for a fast-food meal.
They are packed with protein and fiber and are terrific partnered with my low-fat Chipotle Ranch Sauce !

The potato chip maker link to amazon is below. It comes with a potato slicer and costs less than $10. Instructions say to cook in microwave for 3-5 minutes, but I have found it takes 7-8 minutes to get nice and crispy in mine. Excellent product!
