Delicious, Easy Chipotle Black Bean Burger Recipe


Hand-made veggie burgers are one of my favorite go-to meals. And this Chipotle Black Bean Burger is one of the most popular veggie burgers in my house. You can make up a batch of these vegan burgers and enjoy them all week long. These black bean quinoa burgers are good in sandwiches or buns, or served as an entrée with a flavorful sauce (try my sun-dried tomato hummus) or even on a bed of greens. These simple, flavorful Chipotle Black Bean Burgers are vegan and can be whipped up in a jiffy. If you want to make them gluten-free, just swap out the breadcrumbs for gluten-free breadcrumbs, and you’re good to go.

Rich in protein, fiber, minerals, vitamins, and phytochemicals, this is a nutritious, plant-based option for your healthy diet. You can save time and reduce fat in veggie burgers by baking them instead of frying them. Just mix up the veggie burger batter, shape into burgers, and bake on a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, and serve them when they are browned and cooked through. These black bean veggie burgers are also great to freeze in an airtight container, so that you can pull them out later on and enjoy them on busy nights.

With only 9-ingredients, you can whip up this recipe in minutes, and have it on your table in under an hour. Serve the burgers with a whole grain bun, avocado and tomato slices, dark green leaves, and condiments, like Vegan Ranch Dressing, or ketchup to turn this recipe into a meal perfect for a weeknight, outdoor lunch, or potluck. Or, serve it as a veggie patty with a creamy sauce, such as this Almond Sage Cranberry Crema to create a plant-based entrée, served with delicious, mashed potatoes and roasted vegetables. There is just so much you can do with these delicious, versatile Chipotle Black Bean Burgers.
