There comes a time when salads and veggies can get boring. You want what something a little more satisfying. A burger sounds good but the thought of calories and feeling bloated afterwards may have you thinking twice. Even to this day, I’ll try a big juicy burger and need to take easy.

I’ve tried a lot of veggie burgers over the years. I even worked as an analyst at Target Headquarters in charge of ordering frozen veggie burgers and single serving meals for 1800 stores. Yet the store bought versions just don’t seem to cut it. They can taste overly processed lacking flavour and texture.

It all comes down to convenience and taste. And you know what my friends homemade veggie burgers don’t need to be complicated. Just throw everything in a blender and then form some veggie burger patties. It takes 10 minutes to prep and then sauté in the skillet for 10 minutes. They are easy to make and seriously satisfying.

Veggie Burger Easy Recipe

This easy veggie burger recipe only requires 9 ingredients. And these burgers deliver on flavor and texture. They get their substance from black beans and oat flour. Oat flour is a great substitute for Panko bread crumbs which are used in so many veggie burger recipes. You want a veggie burger that holds together and doesn’t crumble apart. And this veggie burger easy recipe is definitely a winner.

If you’re looking for a vegan option, you can substitute with a flax egg – one tablespoon ground flaxseed and 3 tablespoons water.

Veggie Burger Easy Recipe Ingredients

I add a little coco aminos or soy sauce to enhance the flavour ever so slightly. Coco aminos is a healthy alternative to soy sauce with significantly less sodium. You can use whichever you have on hand.

How to Make this Veggie Burger Easy Recipe

In a blender, place black beans, onion, cilantro, garlic, coco aminos / soy sauce, salt, pepper, oat flour, and egg. Blend and pause to check on the mixture. You want a mixed consistency but you want some of the black beans for texture. You can easily double this recipe if you want more burgers.

Remove from the blender and place in a bowl. Set aside for 15 minutes.

Line a plate with parchment paper. Form burger mixture into 4 patties. Set burgers on parchment lined plate.

In a skillet with little oil, place your veggie burger patties and flip to cook both sides. I’ve tested the burgers in the oven and skillet. You may get a thicker burger in the oven but I prefer the convenience and speed of cooking on a skillet. Simply turn on the skillet and flip a few times.

For Sriracha aioli, mix the Sriracha, vegan mayonnaise, and lime juice together.

Serve burger as is or on a toasted bun with toppings. Leftover burgers will keep for 5 days in the fridge.

This is a go to recipe in my home. I like to change it up rotating between Sriracha aioli and chimichurri sauce. Both sauces give this burger a nice little kick. Last but not least, I love to add sautéd onions on top. They are divine!

These burgers are:

Flavorful
Easy to make
Tasty
Seriously satisfying

    Excellent recipe and easy to make even my meat eater friends loved these veggie burgers! I’ve already made these twice and will be making them again.

      Thanks for your note Tess! It makes me smile. This is definitely a crowd pleaser recipe.

    This has become a must in my diet. I’ve made it 3 times in the last 2 months. I don’t usually write reviews but I thought this recipe deserves to be shared. Em, this a good one! My family loves it. I’ve also tried it with the sriracha and chimchurri sauce. I usually prefer the chimichurri sauce on top.

      Thanks for sharing this Jen! And good to know you like the chimichurri sauce with it. That is actually my favorite sauce to use with these black bean veggie burgers too. I use my chimichurri sauce linked above and lately I’ve been chopping up the chimichurri ingredients and not using the blender. It takes the same amount of time and tastes even more fresh this way!

    These black bean burgers are so flavorful! I truly love this recipe. Currently I have frozen Morningstar veggie burgers in my freezer…but since making this recipe…I won’t go back. I love the idea of making my own with fresh, simple ingredients. They’re so good. Don’t skimp on the chimichurri sauce. Make it! It’s delicious and I’ve been using it as an add in for other sauces. Yum!!!

      Thanks Sara!! I hear ya. I used to eat frozen Morningstar veggie burgers all the time when I worked in an office. I too had no idea how easy it was so to make them on my own. And chimichurri sauce is soooooo good. We call it green sauce for Emmett and he puts it on everything too.
