Spicy Black Bean Burgers

4 cups (32 oz) cooked black beans, drained very well

1 1/2 cups whole wheat toasted bread crumbs

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

1 egg white

3 garlic gloves, minced or pressed

3 tablespoons cayenne pepper

2 tablespoons cumin powder

1teaspoon dried oregano

2 or 3 tablespoons fresh cilantro, finely chopped


  • In a food processor, combine a bit more than half (or up to like 2/3) of the beans with the breadcrumbs, mayo, egg white, garlic, cayenne pepper, cumin, and oregano. Pulse until it forms a thick paste.
  • Take 4 or 5 slices of good whole wheat bread, remove the crusts, chop up and pulse in a food processor or blender until medium-ish crumbs form. Toss in a tbs of olive oil and spread evenly on a cookie sheet and cook at 180c/350 f, tossing occasionally, until light golden and crispy.
  • Mash the remaining beans with a fork or potato masher until they are in smallish chunks. Combine the paste, remaining beans, and chopped cilantro - mashing together with your hands until well combined. Form the mixture into patties.
  • To cook, heat a heavy frying pan with a splash of olive oil over medium high heat. Cook the patties on both sides until nice and brown and crispy. Reduce heat and let cook a few more minutes until heated through. You could also cook in the oven or on the grill.
  • Ate them on a whole wheat English Muffin.
