I’ve been experimenting with veggie burgers for years, and hands down- the trick to a good, firm veggie burger is removing as much moisture as possible before cooking. I’ve tried many times to make it the fast way, but unfortunately, they end up being a bit mushy or crumbly. I realized in order to get that perfect veggie burger, you need to put in a little extra time. And it’s totally worth it! In this recipe, the key is to dehydrate the beans a little beforehand and cook the veggies first to release some moisture (and pat dry). The result is firm, healthy, oil-free homemade Black Bean Oat Burgers!

To start, preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet covered in parchment paper. Add the black beans (rinsed and drained) to the baking sheet.

Bake for 18-20 minutes. Remove the beans from the oven and transfer to a food processor. Set the baking sheet aside and save the parchment paper if desired (you’ll use it again later).

Meanwhile, while waiting for the beans to cook, prepare your flax egg. In a small bowl, combine the 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed and 3 tablespoons water. Stir and let sit for 5 minutes.

Next, you can chop the onion and mushrooms, I recommend dicing them in this Kitchenaid Hand Blender. It makes life so much easier!

Then, in a medium skillet over medium-high heat, add 1 tablespoon unsalted vegetable broth, garlic, onion and mushrooms. Cook for 5-6 minutes, or until onions are translucent.

Remove from heat. Transfer the veggies to a plate covered in paper towel. Place another paper towel on top and carefully (it’s hot!) press down to remove as much moisture as possible from the veggies. Transfer the veggies to the food processor.

To the food processor (with the black beans), add the flax egg, oats, corn, smoked paprika, salt, ketchup and whole grain mustard. Process for 1 minute until combined.

Form the burger mix into patties, about 1/2 inch thick with your hands (they will be sticky). Place each patty on the parchment paper/baking sheet. There should be about 10 patties total for this recipe.

Bake for 35-40 minutes at 375 degrees, carefully flipping burgers with a thin spatula 20 minutes into the baking time. Serve each burger on a toasted bun with onion, tomato, lettuce, pickles, etc.

You can also freeze these burgers before baking. I would recommend freezing them on a baking sheet individually first (until firm), then stacking them up (with parchment paper in between) so they don’t stick together and place in the freezer again.
