I made this recipe without the bread crumbs from a recipe I had copied from the June/July issue 2003 of Taste of Home magazine. The recipe is almost identical except for bread crumbs. I seasoned the burger with seasoning salt pepper and a little garlic salt. If you want a little more kick your choice of salsa will make a difference. You may use egg substitute if desired results are the same. Top with your favorite condiments vegetables. Enjoy! Read More

We was not told where to put the bread crumbs so I'm assuming they would go in with the beans and brown rice. Read More

I have never tried black bean burgers let alone made them at home so I was a little nervous but they turned out great used the salsa/sour cream (or in my case greek yogurt) mix on the side w/just the black bean patties no bun and they were really tasty and filling. My skeptical fiancee who be-grudgingly has agreed to some meatless meal nights even liked them! Read More

This turned out phenomenally. I omitted the salsa and added my own seasonings instead (salt pepper fresh crushed garlic chili pepper) and they held together really well and they taste delicious. I'm more of a hamburger girl but I'll go for these again and again. Read More

This is a great recipe for lunch or dinner entrees. Since I was out of salsa I added a little Teriyaki Soy Worcestershire and barbecue sauces to spice up the black bean burger mixture. I used 3 slices of 12-grain bread for bread crumbs white long grain rice (instead of brown) and used 2 eggs instead of one. I threw everything (except the rice) into the food processor which gave me just the right consistency. I sprayed the pan with a non-stick and cooked the patties on med-low heat adding a thin slice of extra sharp cheddar cheese in the last couple of minutes of cooking. The veggie burgers were a delicious hit! Read More

I had only 3/4 c. of bread crumbs and didn't add salsa and the consistency was perfect for making burgers. I did add Creole seasoning (1 1/2 t.) They were delicious. I added a slice of co-jack on top to melt while the burger was still cooking served on a toasted bun with mayo and tomato and they were devoured. I love all kinds of veggie burgers and also love real hamburgers. This was very meaty and satisfies the burger craving. Highly recommended if you're wanting the real thing but just want to eat more veggies & less meat. Read More
