Healthy Gluten-Free Recipes: Vegan Black Bean Burger

Perfect for vegetarians, celiacs, and those with other digestive ailments, these nourishing black bean burgers are a lighter choice than a regular burger and are protein-rich, full of fibre and contain no meat.


If you’re fed up of chickpeas and want a legume with a little more OOMPH, these black bean burgers will be right up your street. Hot, spicy and full of flavour, these burgers go nicely with a cool salsa or guacamole.



  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • ½ green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 50g sweetcorn
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp chilli powder
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tsp hot sauce
  • ½ cup gluten-free bread crumbs (you can make these yourself by allowing around 5 gluten-free bread slices to stale and then blitzing them in a food processor)


  1. Preheat the oven to 200c and grease a baking sheet.
  2. Mash the beans in a bowl until thick.
  3. In a food processor, blitz the bell pepper, onion, and breadcrumbs together and then stir into the beans.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix the egg, sweetcorn, chilli powder, cumin and hot sauce.
  5. Stir the egg mixture into the beans mixture until thick and doughy.
  6. Divide the mixture into 8 patties and place on the baking tray.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes on each side.
  8. Serve with gluten-free pitta or flatbreads.
