Black Bean Veggie Burgers – Quick to Fix, Good to Eat

To speed up prep time, lay out all the ingredients first.

This Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burger has become a go-to recipe at the end of busy summer days. It’s also a great one to pull out at the last minute when you have lost track of time and need something homemade, healthy and flavorful.

It seems we change the recipe up a bit every time we make the burgers based on what we have on hand; this includes substituting yellow, red or orange peppers for the green one; adjusting the seasonings; and replacing regular bread crumbs with Panko (Japanese bread crumbs – available at Trader Joes).

Add ketchup, mustard, lettuce, tomato, a pickle, and a whole wheat bun – then take the picture!  Patience was not on the menu this night, thus the picture above.

As an aside, we eat a lot of veggie burgers in our house but have grown weary of the prepared ones at the grocery; plus even though the prepared ones are not that expensive, you can make them for a lot less. Over the years, we have had an ongoing contest in our house to see who can find the recipe that we ALL like – one that yields a veggie burger with the right amount of firmness, even crunch (and definitely not mushy); good flavor; and easy to cook. With this recipe, I have pulled slightly ahead! Not one to rest on my laurels, however, do you have a favorite recipe that you would like to share here?

Enjoy!
