Recipe of the Week- Veggie Burgers

Easy Homemade Veggie Burgers

(For a Pareve alternative)


  • 1 (16 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed very well
  • ½ green pepper, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • ½ onion, cut into wedges
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1-2 ounces whole wheat bread crumbs


  1. If grilling, preheat an outdoor grill to high heat and lightly oil a sheet of aluminum foil. If baking, preheat oven to 375°F and spray a baking sheet using Pam. 
  2. In a medium bowl, mash black beans with a fork until thick and pasty. In a food processor, finely chop bell pepper, onion, and garlic, then stir into mashed beans.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together egg, chili powder, cumin, and chili sauce. Stir the egg mixture into the mashed beans. Mix in bread crumbs just until the mixture is sticky and holds together. Divide mixture into 4 patties.
  4. If grilling, place patties on foil and grill for about 8 minutes on each side. If baking, place patties on a baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes on each side. 

Makes 4 burgers. Count 1-2 burgers as protein for lunch or dinner.
