Veggie burgers are notorious for falling apart. If you’re sick of
crumbly burgers, try this simple method for making these hot and
spicy black bean patties. It’s 100-percent guaranteed to stick together.
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained
3 tablespoons minced onions
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons parsley
1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
2/3 cup flour
Oil for pan-frying
1 tablespoon hot sauce, for garnish
1. Process the black beans in a blender or food processor until halfway
mashed, or mash with a fork.
2. Add minced onions, salt, garlic powder, parsley, and chili powder and
mash to combine.
3. Add flour, a bit at a time, again mashing together to combine. You may
need a little bit more or less than ⁄ cup. Beans should stick together
4. Form into patties and pan-fry in a bit of oil for 2–3 minutes on each
side. Patties will appear to be done on the outside while still a bit mushy
on the inside, so fry them a few minutes longer than you think they need.
Top with hot sauce.
