  1. Process walnuts in a food processor until you have a coarse powder; add oats, flax seeds, cumin, paprika, salt, and ground cinnamon and process again until the oats are ground into a coarse powder. Put black beans and sweet potato into the processor bowl; process until smooth and transfer to a mixing bowl.
  2. Stir egg, onion, Fresno chile, crimini mushroom, garlic, and soy sauce into the black bean mixture until smoothly integrated; shape into 6 patties.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Fry patties in oil until a deep-brown crust forms, about 5 minutes per side.


  • Cook's Note:
  • For a richer taste, prepare your own black beans by soaking overnight in salt water and then cooking in simmering water until soft, about 80 minutes.

These were pretty good. Not the best. That's why 4 stars. I think it's just a matter of taste, that's all. But the recipe worked, I didn't change anything.

These are very good although I am not sure whether regular condiments are right on it. I am sure lettuce would be good and am looking for right sauce. Maybe chili garlic sauce from the Asian mar...

Ok first of all I have tried several veggie burgers but this recipe by far is supreme! I only had one can of black beans and one can of red kidneys but it worked. Since I love mushrooms and onio...

I rated this a five for a couple reasons. It looks like a beef burger which is wonderful because we eat with our eyes too! I didn't have sweet potato on hand so I subbed in zucchini raw and adde...

This recipe got a thumbs up from 3 non-vegetarians. I was worried it might taste too walnutty but it didn't. I only made a couple altercations because I didn't have a few ingredients. I didn't a...
