Smoky Black Bean Burger

Smoky Black Bean Burger

Ever wanted to make your own black bean burger at home where you know the ingredients and feel good about eating this satisfying meal? This smoky black bean burger is lightened up and uses only the best ingredients that anyone can find in their kitchen.

Only about a month ago I finally got one of the most important kitchen tools that I was dreaming about for awhile – a brand new food processor! I’ve never had one before but now I wonder how I could have lived without one my whole life?! It’s literally a lifesaver for making all kinds of purees, sauces, dips, soups, etc. If you like cooking at home and still don’t have one, save some $ and get a good one on sale – it will last you a lifetime and you will see what I mean – it’s a lifesaver!

So, back to the burger. Here is how your burger should look like in the raw stage of its making 😉

Once you’ve got that, the rest is very easy. One thing to keep in mind though – you MUST refrigerate the mass before making patties! Very important! Your burgers won’t hold their form if you don’t! So, be patient and refrigerate for at least one hour, preferably overnight.

Once done, you won’t believe how incredible these smoky black bean patties taste! Not even a comparison to store bought!
