Fruity Smoky Bean Burgers

This recipe is one of those famous accidental discoveries that turn out to taste amazing.

I wanted to make burgers, but I also had an apple sitting on the counter which I wasn’t planning to eat today, but it definitely had to go.

So I just decided to add it to the burgers! I know that sounds totally weird, but they make a great companion.

Not only do they add a touch of sweetness, but they also provide just enough moisture to prevent the burgers from drying out and falling apart too much.

As for the buns, I used my Salt-Free Bagel recipe and just shaped the dough like burgers and not like bagels.


6 cups cooked black beans (I do it this way from scratch)
2 carrots, diced
1 red onion, diced
One clove garlic, pressed (or more if you like it garlicy and don’t have to leave the house)
1 large apple, finely diced or grated
juice and zest of one lime
1/3 cup ground flax seeds
2/3 cup finely chopped parsley
2/3 cup rolled oats
1 tsp rosemary
1 tsp thyme
One tbsp marjoram
1 cap full of liquid smoke

How To Cook Smoky Bean Burgers

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except for the beans, ground flax seeds and rolled oats and let marinate for 30 minutes. If you’re in a real hurry, you can skip the marinating.

Add beans, ground flax seeds and rolled oats and mash with a potato masher until everything is fully combined.

Form burger patties using a 1/2 cup measure.

Place them on a baking sheet lined with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.

Bake for 20 minutes @ 350°F and another 10 minutes @ 425°F.

Let them cool down for about ten minutes before serving.
