Black Bean Burgers w/ Mango Salsa & Guacamole

Have you ever tried making your own veggie burgers? A food processor makes easy work of it, and you can scale up the recipe and store the leftover patties in the fridge or freezer for later. Make a big batch of salsa and keep this meal going all week!

Paired with a batch of fresh, flavorful salsa, guac, and cilantro, this meal is a winner every time. If you want to play around more with veggie burgers, I’ve found this to be a really good general veggie burger formula.

Recipe From: Katie’s Conscious Kitchen


Black Bean Burgers

  • 3 oz canned or cooked black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 oz cashews, walnuts, or almond meal
  • 4 oz bell peppers and onions chopped
  • 1/2 of a jalapeño pepper seeds discarded (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • A dash of salt and pepper

Quick & Easy Guac-For-One

  • 2 oz avocado
  • 1/2 of a lime juiced (or more to taste)
  • 1 spoonful of your favorite salsa
  • Half of a clove of garlic minced
  • A big pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro or more to taste

Mango & Pineapple Salsa

  • 6 oz mango and/or pineapple diced
  • 4 oz red peppers and red onion for mango salsa, diced
  • 1/2 of a jalapeño pepper seeds discarded (optional)
  • 1/2 of a lime juiced
  • Pinch of salt
  • Handful of chopped cilantro


  • In a food processor, process the cashews until they are a coarse nut meal.
  • Add the coarsely chopped onion, garlic, and red pepper and pulse again.
  • Add the drained beans and spices and process until the mixture is combined, but still fairly chunky.
  • Form into desired sized patties and fry them in a little oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Let them cook for a while before trying to flip them, at least 10 minutes. Alternatively, to make this meal oil free, bake them at 350°F on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for 20 minutes or so, or until cooked through and browned to your liking.
  • Serve with the mango salsa, guac, and extra cilantro.
  • While the burgers are cooking, mash the guac ingredients together in a bowl with a fork.
  • Toss the mango salsa ingredients together.
