  1. Combine turkey, black beans, onion, tomato, parsley, egg white, garlic, oregano, cumin, salt, and pepper together in a bowl until well combined; form into 4 patties.
  2. Heat a greased skillet over medium heat; cook patties until no longer pink in the center, 4 to 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).


  • Cook's Notes:
  • I do not use canned beans as I am trying to stay away from the preservatives and sodium. To cook dried beans, bring dried black beans to a boil and then simmer for 1 1/2 hours or until desired tenderness.
  • They come out great on the George Foreman® grill.

I've made these burgers twice now and both times were great. First time I used a food processor to blend ingredients and had a problem with burgers staying together, even after flash freezing. T...

Very tasty! Easy and quick recipe to pull together on a weeknight. My family loved it as well.

I didn't have any cumin so maybe that's why I couldn't give it a five star. Also, I added some bread crumbs, maybe 1/4 cup at most and slice of American cheese. But very good and will make ag...

This was quick, easy and very tasty. This will be a go-to recipe when time is limited.

Very yummy! Made them for dinner tonight and they are a hit. I made them just as the recipe said. I did however follow a suggestion made by another rater and put them in the freezer for two ...
