Mexican Black Bean Spinach Burgers

Way more delicious than veggie burgers from the frozen foods section of your grocery store. And just about as easy, too!


Mexican Black Bean Spinach Burgers (vegan)

(makes 2 patties)


  • 3/4 C black beans (rinsed and drained)
  • 1/2 C fresh spinach
  • 1/4 C whole wheat flour
  • 2 Tbsp. oats
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 small garlic clove


Toss it all into a food processor and whirl away! Once it’s mixed, form into two patties. Toss them onto a skillet (or a grill) coated with cooking oil/spray and cook on medium high for about 5 minutes, flipping at least once until they have a bit of a crust on them. Serve atop salad or on a whole wheat bun with toppings!


I originally created these veggie burgers for a class project. Check out the original post for lots more photos and details! And here is the follow up post where we make the burgers on site at UNC hospitals!
