I worked on this recipe last week and perfected it to my taste. Renee (http://reneesilvana.blogspot.com) asked me to share it with everyone, so here it is...

Bean Burgers


1 Can of beans (The choice of beans is yours)
1 Onion
1 Large carrot
1 Pepper
½ tin of Sweet Corn (optional)
1 tsp of Garlic
½ Cup of pulsed oats
1 Egg (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
30 ml Olive oil


Throw oil into a pan. Add the chopped onion, finely grated carrot and chopped pepper. Fry together till onion is soft. Add the garlic and the salt and pepper to taste. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.

Throw the oats into a blender and pulse. Remove oats and put to the side. Drain the beans and toss them into the blender. Pulse till smooth. Throw the smooth mix into a bowl. Add the cooled onion, carrot and pepper mix. Also add the oats. Mix together.

Taste for seasoning. You can add more salt and pepper if you need to. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.

All that is left to do is to shape them into burgers.

I also use this recipe for my vegetarian cottage pie and vegetarian meatballs as well. I personally like the taste because it has clean flavors and simple seasonings of salt and pepper. Feel free to jazz it up anyway you like.


  1. I've never had a bean burger so I'm going to give this a try.

  2. This sounds good! I'm not allergic to soy products, but I don't like using so many, so a veggie/bean burger is just what I've been looking for.

  3. Mary - I hope you won't be disappointed.

    Shannon - Unfortunately, visiting all the a-z participants is too much of a challenge for me. But I will definitely check out Tina's blog.

  4. Mmmm...sounds really good! I wanted to stop by and say "hi" not only from the challenge Shannon mentioned, but also to thank you so much for stopping by.

  6. Ooh, those would make for some tasty "bean" balls in pasta sauce. Thanks for sharing!! Can't wait until all my cooking equipment makes it out to Arizona!

  7. Hi everyone! Sorry I am only responding now. I had some internet problems.

    Tina - You are welcome. Thanks for returning the favour.

    Dawn - Thank you for stopping by. Hope you like the finished results.

    Renee - You are so very welcome. Hope the moving goes well and that you like my burger recipe.

  8. Oh, I wish I wasn't constantly on a diet!!

  9. Carole - I personally hate diets. I used to be on one all the time, but now I just focus on exercising regularly and checking my portion sizes. Of course it helps now that I no longer eat meat. Good luck with the diet.
