Autumn Bean Burgers

Autumn Bean Burgers

We couldn’t believe how quick and easy these great black bean and sweet-potato burgers are to make! They’re high in protein, super-healthy, and delicious, too. Garlic and red onion add health benefits and great taste, and you can serve them on their own or on a bun with the condiments you like best.

This recipe was quite a find. Read the simple directions for Autumn Bean Burgers here.


2 cups cooked or canned black beans
1 cup sweet potato, grated
1/2 cup almond butter
1/2 cup red onion, diced
1/4 cup Sicilian olives, diced
1/4 cup whole spelt flour or other flour
2 tablespoons tamari
3 cloves garlic, diced
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated

1. Drain and rinse the black beans, place them in a medium bowl, and mash. Stir in the remaining ingredients.

2. Scoop 1/3 cup of batter at a time to form individual burger patties. Place a cast-iron frying pan on the stove over medium heat. Add a bit of oil to the pan and place a few burger patties in the oil. Fry each burger for 7 to 10 minutes on one side, then flip them over and fry an additional 5 to 7 minutes on the other side, or until the centers of the burgers are cooked through. If they brown too quickly, just turn the heat down a bit to allow them to cook more slowly.

3. Serve hot, on their own or on burger buns with condiments of your choice.

Makes 10 to 12 burgers.
