Black Bean Veggie Burgers

  • Author: by Mary
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 40 mins
  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 6 1x


  • 1 cup dry TVP (texurized vegetable protein)
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 jalapeƱo (optional)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 23 large carrots, chopped
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 tsp fresh chives or scallions, chopped
  • 1 handful raw spinach
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  2. Blend the TVP in a food processor until it resembles flour. Set aside.
  3. In the food processor, combine all remaining ingredients. Blend until mostly smooth, but flecks still visible.
  4. Stir the blended TVP and bean mixture together. Add more TVP if necessary: mixture should be wet, but not sticky.
  5. Form the mixture into patties and put on a parchment-lined baking pan.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes on each side.
