Lettuce-Wrapped Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burger // Tried and Tasty
So burger week has been all fun and games for the meat lovers. The week started off with the Queso Blanco Cinco de Mayo Burger, then the Mouth Watering Tasty Reuben Burger, followed by the wildly popular Guacamole Bacon Burger, and delicious Sautéed Mushroom & Swiss Burger with Caramelized Onions!  Additionally, Jesseca from One Sweet Appetite has also been sharing great burgers. So what about those of you that either a) don’t care to eat meat or b) are vegetarian and just plain don’t eat meat?

Lettuce-Wrapped Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burger // Tried and Tasty

I had a special request from a friend to share a veggie burger. Before she mentioned it the thought didn’t really cross my mind. I’m SO glad I took the challenge. First of all, these smelled absolutely divine before they even hit the grill. Then, wrapped in lettuce, topped with a tomato and served with a side of the most delicious sweet potato fries you’ve ever tasted and a garden salad: you’ve got an out of this world meal. In fact, my husband said this was possibly the best meal I’ve ever cooked for him! Whoa. Um. Wow.

Ingredients
  1. 2 (15 oz cans) black beans, rinsed & drained
  2. 1/2 bell pepper (any color), quartered
  3. 1/4 white onion, cut into wedges
  4. 1/4 red onion, cut into wedges
  5. 3 cloves garlic, peeled
  6. 1 egg
  7. 1 tbsp. chili powder
  8. 1 tsp. cumin
  9. 1/2 tsp. salt
  10. 1/4 tsp. cayenne (optional)
  11. 1 c. fresh bread crumbs
Instructions
  1. Preheat grill to high heat, and lightly oil a sheet of aluminum foil. In a medium bowl, mash black beans with a fork until thick and pasty. In a food processor, finely mince bell pepper, onion, and garlic; drain excess liquid. Add to mashed beans. Stir in egg, chili powder, cumin, salt, & cayenne. Mix in bread crumbs until the mixture is sticky and holds together. Using 1/2 c. measuring cup, divide mixture into seven patties. Place patties on foil, and grill about 8 minutes on each side.
Notes
  1. If you would rather bake the veggie burgers rather than grill them, preheat oven to 375, and lightly oil a baking sheet. Place patties on baking sheet, and bake about 10 minutes on each side.
  2. Did you know you can make your own bread crumbs instead of buying pre-made? I love this method and use it any time I need breadcrumbs. At the beginning of the year I went to buy some from the store and the ingredient list was a mile long filled with junk that doesn’t belong in breadcrumbs. We buy Dave’s Killer Bread, so I know using that I’ve got some pretty power-packed breadcrumbs. All you have to do is broil your bread (for 1 cup of breadcrumbs I used 4 slices of bread) on high until dark golden brown. Then flip and broil the other side. Once the bread is thoroughly toasted let cool for several minutes and then pulverize in a food processor. Works like a charm!

    I’ve noted other recipes of this type; but I particularly like the way some of the beans are retained whole. I would imagine that would make for a nice consistency.

      You’ll have to let me know what you think! I had no idea you were mostly meatless in your meals. This is a great one to add to the rotation for sure!

      We buy the S&W Organic Black Beans from Costco, or we buy dried – I don’t know which is the best, those are just our preferences. Hope that helps!
