Coconut and Mango Black Bean Veggie Burgers

“The fun with my veggie burger craze continues! Black beans are a versatile, delicious, and nutrient-packed base to make veggie burgers with. I had tropical flavors in mind when I came up with it! You could try a vegan egg-like binder but I found I really needed at least egg whites to bind these.”
4-6 veggie burgers

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse and drain the can of beans, or if you prefer to use dried beans, cook 2/3 dry cup of them ahead of time. Rinse and drain the can of chiles. Use 1 whole egg, or separate two eggs, discarding the yolks.
  2. Put everything on the list into your food processor and chop until you reach the desired consistency-- a total puree, or a rougher chop that still has some whole pieces of beans in there.
  3. Scoop the mixture into a bowl and refridgerate for 20-30 minutes, it's okay if it stays in longer.
  4. Form patties with your hands, you'll get 4 large ones or 6 smaller ones (which I prefer because I eat them on English muffins.).
  5. Heat some olive oil on a frying pan, adding more as needed (mine tends to evaporate after a few minutes) to cook each patty for about 6-7 minutes on each side until golden brown.
  6. Serve on your favorite buns/breads with the fixings you like. Salsa and mango chutney are good with these. Even better, mango chutney with pepperjack cheese on a nice multigrain bun!
