Black Bean Burger With George Foreman Grill

I have been wanting to try to make a homemade Black Bean burger after I had my first delicious bite at a restaurant not too long ago.

When I received the George Foreman Removable-Plate Grill, I knew I had the perfect tool to make these burgers. I was worried about them falling apart on a normal grill, and since they can't fall through any cracks on this grill, and they can still cook perfectly, I knew this was my chance to try them out!

Here is my recipe below:

Healthy Black Bean Burger

You will need:
1 1/2 cups black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 yellow bell pepper, sliced
1/3 cup chopped red onion
3/4 cup shredded carrot
1/3 cup dry quick-cooking oats
2 1/2 tsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp cumin

1. Put all these ingredients in a food processor and pulse until combined. This took me about 2-3 minutes. Then, form it into 4 patties.
2. Put the patties right on the George Foreman Grill. (or if you are using a regular grill, I would put them on aluminum foil with cooking spray) Cook patties for 5 minutes on one side and 5 minutes on the flip side.
3. To serve, add tomato, lettuce or whatever else you like on a nice flavorful burger! Enjoy!

These are so tasty and so healthy! Lots of protein, added veggies and they are super low fat! I knew this would be the perfect recipe to submit to "The George Foreman Grill: Show Us Your Grill Skill Recipe Contest." I hope you enjoy it, as well - perfect meal for a Meatless Monday!

I received the above mentioned free product(s) for review purposes from George Foreman and The Family Review Network.

  1. Thanks for the recipe. I've tried homemade black bean burgers, but the recipe wasn't quite right. Looking forward to trying this one.

  2. Those look really good. I am pregnant and trying to up my protein too, so perfect!

  3. interesting...but I'd try it!

  4. these looks really good. i love veggie burgers. appreciate that you did something meatless.

  5. My husband loves beans and this sounds like a good way to serve them. I have a Forman grill and don't use it nearly enough. I have all the ingredients, so I should be able to try it soon.
    Thanks for the recipe.
