Black Bean Burgers With Cilantro Lime Sauce [Vegan]

A good veggie burger is only as good as its ingredients. Black bean burgers would be terribly bland if you just smashed up some beans and made it into a patty. It needs to be treated like any entree. The varieties of flavors you can add are endless. I tend to go for a spicier burger with lots of onion, bell pepper, and a good amount of seasoning while this super simple cilantro lime sauce is a great topper for a spicy burger. It is cool and tangy.

Black Bean Burgers With Cilantro Lime Sauce [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy FreeVegan




  • 2½ Cups Cooked Black Beans or Canned
  • 1 Cup Ground Oats (I took rolled oats and ground them in the food processor.)
  • ½ Bell Pepper finely diced
  • ½ Red Onion finely diced
  • ½ Cup Cilantro chopped fine
  • ¼ Jalapeno finely diced. More if you like it hot!
  • ¼ Cup Corn, fresh or frozen
  • 2 Cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 Tbs Cumin
  • 2 Tsp Chili Powder
  • 1 to 2 tsp Salt
  • 1 Tbs Oil
  • Favorite toppings: Tomato, Avocado, Red Onion, Greens,

Cilantro Lime Sauce :

  • ¼ Cup Vegan Mayo
  • Juice and zest of 1 Lime
  • ¼ Cup Chopped Cilantro
  • 1 Clove Garlic minced
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


For the Burgers:

  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. Heat pan on stove medium high with the oil. I use a cast iron pan so that I can transfer straight to the oven.
  3. Reserve ¾ cup beans.
  4. Place all other ingredients in the food processor and pulse until combined but still slightly chunky.
  5. Stir in remaining beans.
  6. Form patties. I made 8 pretty good sized patties.
  7. Fry in oil for a few minutes on each side until browned and crispy.
  8. Place in oven and bake for 25 minutes.

For the Cilantro Lime Sauce: 

  1. Mix all ingredients. Put in as much lime zest as you can get, its yum!!
  2. If possible, refrigerate for a few hours to enhance flavors.


To ensure the recipe has no trace amounts of gluten, select oats that are certified gluten-free

I think it would be good to point out that cilantro is known as coriander in the UK, and presumably other countries. Some people may be unaware of this.

I have a problem with gluten; what could I use instead of the oats? And thanks Ray for the heads up on cilantro, did not know that it was coriander and was going to look it up on the internet.
