Credit for this recipe goes to Liz, the nutritionist for Blendtec.  Add your favorite cheese at the end or make these as-is for 100% vegan burgers.  Makes 4 patties.

1/2 cup rolled oats (oatmeal)
1 chunk of onion, approx. 2 tbsp.
1 medium carrot, halved
1/2 bell pepper
1 jalapeño, halved with seeds and membranes removed
1 15-oz can black beans, rinsed, drained and divided
2 tbsp. water
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. kosher salt
Cooking oil to grease pan

Place oats in jar and secure lid.  Run blender on medium-high speed for 20 to 30 seconds to make a flour.  Place in a mixing bowl and set aside.  Add onion, carrot, bell pepper and jalapeño to the jar and enough water to completely  cover the vegetables.  Secure lid and “pulse” 8 to 10 times.  Put chopped vegetables in a fine mesh strainer and press out all excess liquid.  Add the chopped vegetables to mixing bowl containing oat flour.  Add 1/2 cup black beans to mixing bowl.  Place the remaining beans, 2 tablespoons water and seasonings into the blender jar, secure lid and run on medium speed for 25 seconds (“Sauces” button with a Blendtec).  Add bean blend to mixing bowl and incorporate with other ingredients.  Allow mix to sit while nonstick skillet heats up.  Grease the skillet and scoop approximately 1/2 cup of mix per patty and flatten with back of spoon.  Cook patties until heated through.

  1. Can these “burgers” be frozen? I’d like to make a slew of them in advance and pull from the freezer as needed.
    Thank you in advance.

      Matt, I’ve never tried it, but based on the ingredients I don’t see why not. If you attempt to freeze some, let us know how they turn out. Good luck.

  2. Hi,
    I made this today using my Vitamix. It was very good. I added a little more salt. Next time I think I will use real garlic instead of powdered. It would be great with slice of avocado and a little salsa. Thanks for the recipe.

      MJ, I’m glad you enjoyed the recipe and appreciate the modification suggestions!

  3. Recipe sounds great. But you might want to include Daiya vegan cheese substitute (it’s not soy) as an option for vegans. It’s the best! Thanks for the recipe!
