Black Bean and Corn Burger

Monday, September 9, 2019
I’ve attempted cooking a veggie burger several times before, and unfortunately it never turns out too well. I either struggle with getting the burger to stick together or the flavoring is all wrong. But I think I nailed it this time with these Black Bean and Corn Burgers.

Why black bean and corn?


Well, I’ve sampled quite a few veggie burgers and I love the combination between black bean and corn. Corn tends to be naturally sweet and isn’t too overpowering. I actually enjoy that subtle sweetness in my burgers.

I used one can of black beans, corn, rolled oats, and one egg. I added the egg in so that it would help mold the sandwich as well as give it a juicy texture. Sometimes black bean burgers can get a little dry and I wanted to prevent that.

When I first began molding the patties…it fell apart on me. So I needed another dry ingredient to help hold the patties together. I created a “flour” using more rolled oats. I added about an extra 1/4 cup into my food processor, and blended until it was a flour-like consistency.

I’m very pleased with how well these turned out. It was pretty simple to make once I figured out the perfect combination to mold the patties. You can add whatever toppings you normaly like to your burgers. Lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, onions, mayonnaise, and mustard are always a must for my burgers.

If you want to really jazz it up, add some jalopenos to this burger.

This Black Bean burger not only has a savory flavor, but also a sweetness thanks to the added corn.

Notes
Instead of using both rolled oats and flour, you can opt to add in just 1 cup of oat flour alone or rolled oats. I found using both adding more texture
