These black bean burgers make it burger night! My family always asks for seconds of these low calorie black bean burgers. Finish off with all of the normal burger toppings, and serve along side some crispy oven fries.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 8 minutes

Total Time: 18 minutes


  • 1 15-oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup dried breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg, beaten

  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp canola oil
  • 4 whole-wheat hamburger buns
  • Toppings (optional)
  • Lettuce leaves
  • Sliced tomato
  • Sliced onion
  • Sliced pickle

1. Place the black beans in a medium-sized bowl. With the back of a fork, partially mash the beans until they are able to be shaped into a patty. Add the breadcrumbs, egg, worcestershire sauce, and black pepper, and mix together well.

2. Heat the canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
