Black Bean Burgers topped with Fresh Guacamole on a Homemade Bun!

I made these burgers for a couple of friends and I for a lovely Sunday night dinner, seems as though I end up making food for friends a lot! But, that’s okay, I love it. 😀 These were made much like the last batch I did, but I modified some of the ingredients and it is based of a recipe from the Daily Garnish.

Ingredients: (makes 6 burgers)

  • 1 can Black Beans, Rinsed & Drained
  • 1 can Red Beans, Rinsed & Drained
  • 1 Large Tomato, Chopped
  • 1/2 cup Vital Wheat Gluten Flour
  • 1/4 cup Walnuts
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp coriander
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  Next, add the walnuts to your food processor and grind until coarsely chopped (they will still be a little chunky).  Let it run for roughly 10 seconds. Add 3/4 of the beans, tomato, all spices, and the olive oil.  Once all of this is in the food processor, give it a whir and mix it all together. Then stir in the vital wheat gluten flour until it is thoroughly combined.

Spoon mixture into a mixing bowl and then fold in the rest of the whole, reserved beans.  Wet your hands and then form into 6 medium sized patties.  Place patties on a non-stick baking sheet or into a baking pan, and bake at 300 degrees for 40 minutes, turning once in the middle (for these I had to bake them for a little longer because they were too soft in the middle to flip).  If you want to grill these, pre-bake them for 30 minutes at 300, and then throw them on the grill to reheat and get a little extra browning.

For the Guacamole:

Use 2-3 ripe avocados, mash them with diced tomato, cilantro, onion & garlic powder, pickled jalapeños (with a little juice from the jar, totally makes it!), and salt & pepper.


For the Buns:

I used a recipe from VegWeb, but halved the recipe and used half Whole Wheat flour and Half All Purpose Flour. And they were EASY to make. 🙂

[…] year, I tried my hand at making homemade burger buns, and although they turned out okay I thought I’d change them up a bit and use them to cradle […]
