Spicy Vegan Black Bean Burgers

It is always great when a recipe you create just turns out on the first try without having to adjust it at all.
I wanted to try something different with my black bean patties. Typically I use bread crumbs instead of vital wheat gluten flour. This typically makes them dry and I don't like that, so I wanted to experiment.
I used Vital Wheat Gluten Flour instead and it actually worked really well.
Here's the recipe.


  • 15 oz (1 can) -- Black Beans
  • 1/2 cup -- Cooked Rice
  • 1/3 cup -- Whole Corn Kernels
  • 1/4 cup -- Vital Gluten Flour
  • 1 -- Cornstarch Egg Replacement*
  • 1 TBSP -- Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 tsp -- Hot Sauce (I used Tapatio)
  • 1/2 tsp -- Minced Garlic
  • Few Dashes -- Onion powder
  • Few Dashes -- Salt
  • Few Dashes -- Pepper
*Mix 2 TBSP of Cold Water with 2 TBSP of Cornstarch to create an egg substitute.

Start by cooking rice if you haven't already using the instructions that come with your rice.

Using a food processor, mash black beans.

Add Black beans, rice, and corn to a large bowl & mix well.

Add Remaining ingredients. Slowly adding Vital Wheat Gluten & making sure to mix Cornstarch Egg Replacement before adding.

Mix well until mixture begins to thicken up.

Lightly oil skillet & heat over medium heat.

Roll black bean goop into small patties.

Flatten on to skillet. Cook until each side (flip every so often) is a crispy brown.

You'll probably have rice and corn left over for a full meal.

Serve with your favorite burger toppings.
