Veggie burgers are definitely one of my favourite foods and my go-to when dining out. If you’re sceptical about black bean burger, don’t worry-they are omnivore approved! These burgers are super good for you; packed with protein from the quinoa, black beans and mushrooms, no cholesterol since they’re vegan, and low fat.

I’m not going to lie; this black bean burger recipe is a bit labour-intensive. But, they are worth the time, and you will have a lot of leftovers; make them on a Sunday, and you’ll have enough for dinner for the whole week.

What makes this burger extra special is the variety of spices you can add. You can put these to level up the hotness of this vegan burger.

  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 cup quinoa cooked
  • ½ cup quinoa uncooked
  • 1 cup mushrooms chopped (any kind you like)
  • 1 medium sweet onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 ½ tablespoons chilli powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper


  • Preheat your oven to 400°F.
  • Start cooking your quinoa; for those of you new to quinoa, you’ll need to thoroughly rinse the quinoa first and then cook on the stove, one part quinoa, two parts water. While the quinoa cooks, chop your onion, mushrooms, and garlic.
  • When the quinoa is nearly finished, sautee the veggies. Add the rinsed black beans and stir to combine. Add spices, stirring continuously.
  • Remove everything from heat and allow your ingredients to cool enough to handle. Place quinoa, black bean/veggie mixture, and bread crumbs in a food processor and blend. You may need to do this in batches, depending on how big your food processor is.
  • Blend everything until all ingredients are well combined, but not so much that you have a puree. Form into patties with your hand. Place patties on a well-oiled baking sheet. The oil is essential to getting these patties their delicious texture: crispy on the outside, soft in the middle.
  • Bake the burgers at 400°F for 15 minutes, flip over and return to the oven for another 15 minutes.
