Freezable Black Bean and Beet Burgers [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan



Cook Time



  • 1 cup cooked black beans, or 1 15.5-ounce can canned beans, drained and rinsed
  • 3/4 cup dry brown rice, cooked
  • 1 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1/3 cup cooked red beets, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons brown mustard
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  1. Separately cook the beets, black beans (if not using canned), and brown rice.
  2. When the black beans are cooked and tender, mash them in a large bowl.
  3. Gently mix in all the other ingredients until incorporated. The mixture will be slightly sticky and have a chunky, not smooth texture.
  4. Divide the mixture into the size and amount of burgers desired. Flatten them to an even consistency.
  5. Lay the burgers on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for approximately 10 minutes at 350°F.
  6. At this point, you can freeze them for future meals or fry them on the stove in a griddle pan with a little olive oil until the sides are crisp and griddle lines form on each side, about a few minutes per side.
