  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate. Generously grease a sheet of aluminum foil with oil.
  2. Bring barley and water to a boil in a saucepan. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until the barley is tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Mash black beans with a fork in a large bowl until thick and pasty. Stir barley, Cheddar cheese, mushrooms, onion, red bell pepper, parsley, eggs, garlic, salt, and black pepper into mashed black beans. Mix enough bread crumbs into bean mixture to form a sticky batter that holds together.
  4. Divide batter into 4 to 6 patties; place on prepared aluminum foil.
  5. Grill patties on the aluminum foil for about 8 minutes on each side.

To get burgers to stick together, perhaps don't rinse the black beans and lightly coat patties with flour. Provecho!

I have tried this recipe and really liked it. I did do a few things different. I made them into meatballs. I baked them in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes, I did spray them with olive oil so the...

This was really good, however the prep time took a lot longer than 15 minutes. I took the advice of another review and did not rinse the beans. I also drained any excess liquid from the barley. ...

Very good flavor for a veggie-burger (which I usually avoid like the plague). I followed the recipe as posted and had some problems with the patties falling apart. Even after I oiled the foil, t...

I think I will make it again, but I would add more seasoning, perhaps season salt to up the flavor.

Good burgers! I did make some changes: omitted the mushrooms and used instead 1 full red pepper, 1/2 a jalapeno & 1 tbsp taco seasoning. I first pan fried the burgers in the skillet which did...
