Black bean burger

Hi everyone

Last week I started this blog post and thought I’d saved it, but hey guess what?!  I didn’t, the next day when I was going to finnish it I was so pissed that I just didn’t do anything haha. Sorry about that guys.

Okay these black bean burgers are so good, and such a good treat on a weekend for the whole family.


My 5-year-old daughter ate a whole Burger in a bun by her self, I was really impressed with her, because she has not been a big fan of burgers.

Lets jump to the recipe and instructions.

The first thing is to boil the barley for 35-40 minutes.


Next chopping veggies and add to a hot skillet for 5-10 minutes.


When both barley and veggies are ready, rinse your black beans under cold water.

Add beans and barley to a food processor. Pulse for 3 minutes. Then add veggies and seasoning. When everything is well combined, mix the thickeners in.


When the mixture has reached the texture you like, you need to form burger patties, I feel like it’s best to use your hands. I form patties as I go frying them. So I form one patty and add it straight away to a hot skillet with a dash of olive oil and so on. Cook till cooked through, approx 4 minutes on each side.  You can also bake them in an oven if you like.


Mine is never perfect looking, but they always taste amazing.

Recipe is for 8 burger patties (I always freeze leftover patties for later use)

1 can black beans rinsed.

1 cup boiled barley

½ cup breadcrumbs

½ cup whole wheat flour

1 Tbsp nutritional yeast

1 package burrito or taco seasoning

1 medium carrot

100 g leek

½ red bell pepper

2-3 garlic cloves

1 red onion


My toppings were salad leaves, cucumber, red bell pepper, red onion, Dijon mustard and Ketchup.

I really hope you try this burger patty. I’m so happy with the result . This is a recipe I will make over and over again.

I also wanted to tell you that I tried using the patty with a Sunday roast, that is, with potatoes and gravy, and it was very nice. Multitasking burger patties.

Go have a burger.

Until next time ❤
