Black Bean Taco Burgers Healthy, Vegan RecipeJust because summer is over, doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy some yummy grillin’! Combine two meal time favorites with burgers and tacos with this delicious and wholesome sandwich!

Black Bean Taco Patty

  • 1 carrot, sliced and steamed
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 cups salsa
  • 1 cup dried bread crumbs or finely crushed tortilla chips
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 packet of taco seasoning (or more if desired)

Mash beans and steamed carrot in a large bowl. Mix in green pepper, onion, salsa, bread crumbs/tortillas, and flour. Season with salt, pepper, and taco seasoning, to taste. Add flour to create a firmer mixture, or more salsa if the mixture is too stiff. Form mixture into 8 patties, and place on a greased baking sheet.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, and coat with cooking spray. Fry the patties for about 8 minutes on each side, or until browned and firm. Melt cheese onto patty, if desired.

To assemble Taco Burgers:

  • Vegan cheddar cheese, sliced or shredded
  • Burger buns, split
  • Lettuce leaves
  • Tomato slices
  • Red onion, sliced or diced, optional
  • Salsa, optional
  • Guacamole, optional
  • Vegan Sour cream, optional

Top each patty with a cheese slice (if it hasn’t already been melted). Serve on buns with lettuce, tomato, onions, salsa, guacamole and/or sour cream. Enjoy!
