Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Vegetarian eating doesn’t have to be short on flavor, and these burgers are the proof in the pudding. They use cooked sweet potato as a binder, so plan them for the day after you’re making sweet potato and cook an extra so you can use leftovers to save time.


  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • ½ onion, finely chopped
  • 1 beet, finely diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (15 oz.) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • ½ cup whole wheat bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 Tbsp. minced fresh parsley
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • ½ tsp. thyme
  • ½ tsp. coriander
  • ½ cup cooked sweet potato
  • 7 oz. sharp cheddar, grated, divided
  • Juice of ½ lemon


  1. Heat half of the oil in medium skillet over medium heat. Add onions and beets and sauté until soft (6-7 minutes). Add garlic and cook until fragrant (30 seconds).
  2. In food processor, combine beans, bread crumbs, flour, parsley, salt, pepper, thyme and coriander; pulse 5 to 10 times until combined.
  3. Transfer to a large bowl and add sweet potato, 5-6 oz. of cheese, lemon juice. and onion mixture. Mix by hand to combine, then shape into six patties.
