Best Veggie Burger With Carrots and Pinto Beans [Vegan, Gluten-Free]



20 small patties

Cooking Time




  • 1 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup broccoli (peel and chop stalk too), finely chopped
  • 1 cup carrots, grated
  • 1 15.5-ounce can pinto or Roman beans, rinsed, drained
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder


  1. In a large bowl, add the pinto beans and mash with a potato masher or a fork. Add the rest of the ingredients and incorporate evenly by hand. Form into meatballs and flatten. Each patty should be about ½ inch thick and the diameter can be as large as you want.
  2. In a large frying pan over medium high heat, add the veggie patties (the hot pan should ensure that they don't stick and get a nice little crust; no oil needed!). Brown the bottoms (2-3 minutes) and flip to brown the other side, 2-3 more minutes. Serve.
