  • 2 C cubed beets
  • 1 1/2 C (398 ml can) canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp dried sage
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ C whole wheat flour
  • ½ C multigrain bread crumbs


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

  2. Add the black beans to a food processor with the remaining ingredients. Process until everything is combined into a smooth paste.

  3. Form round patties with about a scant 1/2 cup of the black bean beet mixture. Note that changing the size of the patties may alter baking time.

  4. Place the black bean beet burgers on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes until crispy and golden on the outside, flipping halfway through baking time.

  5. Dress the burger with toppings of your choice. I thought it went nice with a spread of half vegan mayo and half dijon!
