You have until Sept 23rd to vote for me in the Project Food Blog Challange. All you need to do is click on the vote for me button in my Project Food Blog Challange Badge, which is to the left of this post. Thanks

This recipe is adapted from a recipe in How to Cook Everything Vegetarian by Mark Bittman. You can use multiple types of beans for this recipe, but we chose black beans. As always I made some changes to the recipe, so if you want to see the original, you gonna have to buy the book!

14 ounce can black beans, drained with liquid reserved
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 cup rolled oats (not the instant kind)
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 egg
  1. Combine the beans, garlic powder, onion powder, oats, chili powder and egg in a food processors and pulse until completely pureed. Add the reserved bean liquid if you feel the desire consistence has not been reached. I did not need to do this.
  2. With wet hands, shape into four equal sized patties. Place the patties on a plate and refrigerate for at least a hour.
  3. Heat a non-stick skillet for about 30 seconds, add the patties and cook on each side for 5 minutes or until each patties is brown and firm.


  1. Looks really good! Do you use plain black beans or the preseasoned ones?

  2. Amy this looks good... I am gonna try this one for sure!

  3. This looks excellent and simple to put together. I want to try this soon!

    Do you think this would turn out with different beans as well (just curious)?
