Description

This Tempeh Black Bean Burger recipe can be made vegan or vegetarian, and it works beautifully both ways. It’s filling,  nutritious and high in protein (18 grams per burger).


Ingredients

  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flax seeds mixed in 3 tbsp of water) or 1 egg, beaten
  • 18oz package tempeh
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp grilling or hamburger seasoning mix
  • 1/4 tsp salt (or to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 cup canned black beans
  • 2 medium scallions, sliced thin
  • 1/2 cup shredded vegan or dairy cheese 
  • 3 tsp extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray it generously with cooking spray
  2. Combine the ground flax seeds and water in a small bowl or beat one egg. Set aside
  3. Crumble the tempeh  in a large bowl. Add the paprika, seasoning, salt and black pepper and toss gently.
  4. In a separate bowl, mash the black beans slightly, using you hands. See Note 2
  5. Add the mashed black beans, scallions, cheese and flax mixture (or egg) to the crumbled tempeh, and using your hands, mix it all the ingredients together until well combined ( make sure all the ingredients are well mashed, so the burger holds together)
  6. Divide the mixture in 4 pieces and shape each one into patties, about an inch thick
  7. Brush both sides of each patty with olive oil and carefully transfer them to the baking sheet. Bake at 375F for 30 minutes then broil for about 2 minutes per side, watching them carefully so they don’t burn
  8. Serve on a bun with your favorite fixings… We love these with Home Made Hummus, Roasted Tomatillo Salsa or Romesco Sauce!

Notes

  1. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO MAKE EXTRA BURGERS AND FREEZE THEM, WE RECOMMEND FREEZING THEM ALREADY COOKED.
  2. Mash the black bean burger ingredients by hand instead of using a food processor for a better burger texture.  The food processor will make the veggir burgers too mushy
