Homemade Bean Burgers

Add as many or as few seasonings as you like. I like some Worcestershire, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes, but feel free to add cumin, red curry powder, dill, hot sauce, BBQ sauce and more to taste. Feel free to also add chopped peppers, mushrooms or corn!

  • 1/3 cup beans. The starchier the beans the better. Big beans like pinto work well, and dry beans like garbanzo do not.
  • 1 tbsp whole wheat flour


  • Combine 1/3 cup beans and 1 tbsp whole wheat flour.
  • Now is when you can add any additional seasonings or ingredients.
  • Mash everything together with a fork. This is HARD work. Just keep mashing. If you need to, add a half tsp of water.
  • And form a patty.
  • Heat a flat skillet to medium high heat and spray with cooking spray. Plop down burger.
  • After 3-5 minutes, when you can shake burger loose in pan, flip. It should be lightly browned.
  • Give it another 3-4 minutes and plop onto dressed bun.
