Black Bean Burgers – Vegan

I am attempting to stockpile some recipes here for my fans, friends, family and clientele. I’m happy to add new recipes often, especially ones that are cleanse friendly.

Meaning: gluten free & vegan for the most part.

These black bean burgers were relatively fast, a little bland on the condiments (cleanse time) but if you aren’t cleansing a good bun or veganaise or your other fave condiments will jazz this puppy up tout suite.

Hope you all enjoy!


1.5 cups of cooked black beans
1.5 cups cooked brown rice
2 medium yellow onions chopped
5 gloves garlic chopped
1 tbsp liquid smoke or chipotle powder
2 bay leaves
1 tsp himalayan salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 cup pumpkin seeds (not roasted)
1 tbsp paprika
1/4 cup veggie stock

Dress with: avocado, tomato, onion, lettuce…..whatever you wish.


Place beans, onions, garlic, bay leaves in large pan and sautee at medium heat for a few minutes. Add 1/4 cup of water and cook until absorbed.

Toast pumpkin seeds and all spices in coconut oil for 3-5 minutes on medium until browned.

Combine all ingredients in bowl and mix thoroughly. 
Separate 1/2 of the mixture and place in food processor. Process until it reaches a smooth texture, but will still stick together. 
Form into patties and fry on stove top until browned. Other options:  Bake at 350 for approx 20 mins until browned

This recipe made 7 fair-sized patties in total. As we were on an elimination cleanse, we used gluten free, tortillas as pictured above.
