Black Bean Burgers


  • 2 cans (15.5 oz each) black beans, rinsed & drained
  • 1 cup cooked rice/gluten-free breadcrumbs/almond flour
  • ½ large yellow or white onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 5 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 cups of your choice of chopped vegetables (shown in video: ½ cup peppers, ½ cup broccoli & 1 cup shredded carrot)
  • 2 Tablespoons chia seeds + 1/3 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ¾ teaspoon pink Himalayan or sea salt
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1 scoop Organixx Clean Sourced Collagens powder (omit for vegan option)


  1. Spread drained black beans onto a lined baking sheet in a single layer and bake at 350F for 15 minutes to dry out beans just a bit. Let beans cool slightly after baking.
  2. While beans are baking, make chia egg replacement by mixing together chia seeds and water in a small bowl. Set aside to thicken.
  3. In a skillet over medium heat, add olive oil, onion, garlic, and veggies. Saute for a few minutes until softened and fragrant. Remove pan from heat and allow veggies to cool.
  4. In a food processor, add cooled veggies, chia egg replacement, spices, and collagens powder if using. Pulse to combine but don’t over mix. Pour into a mixing bowl.
  5. To the same food processor bowl, add black beans and rice (or breadcrumbs or flour). Pulse until beans are desired size. Pour into mixing bowl with veggie mixture and stir or use your hands to combine well.
  6. Measure out 1/3 cup of mixture and form into a burger. Repeat.
  7. Bake burgers at 375F for around 20 minutes. You can eat burgers right away or store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to week. Reheat on a grill, in the oven, or in a skillet with a bit of olive oil. Use as you would a hamburger patty. Enjoy!

Ingredient Highlights

Almond flour is a gluten-free flour made by grinding almonds after the skin has been removed. It’s softer and finer than almond meal which is made by grinding almonds with the skin left on.

Black beans are prized for their high protein and fiber content, but they also help strengthen bones, lower blood pressure, and protect the heart. 

Broccoli belongs to a group of veggies known as cruciferous vegetables. It’s a true miracle food, believed to support immunity and bone health, maintain cholesterol levels that are already within a healthy range, and cleanse the body.  

Carrots were originally medicine, not food. They’ve been used in potions and remedies for the stomach, bladder, jaundice, the easing of menstruation symptoms, and cancer.

Chia seeds are a rich source of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids and protein, with 4 grams of protein per ounce of seeds.

Collagen helps maintain the structure and integrity of skin, hair, nails, muscle tissue, bones, tendons, and more. Organixx Clean Sourced Collagens includes targeted nutrients such as zinc, vitamin C, and vitamin B6 which enhance the bioavailability and potency of collagen.

Cumin has a distinctly warm and earthy flavor and is a popular culinary spice in India, Asia, Africa, and Latin America. As a medicinal herb, cumin is traditionally used to provide relief from digestive issues.

Garlic is considered both a vegetable and an herb and is clinically proven to support the immune system. There are over 300 varieties of garlic grown around the world.

Onions are nutrient-dense, meaning they’re low in calories but high in vitamins and minerals such as vitamins C, B, and potassium. The flavanoids are concentrated in the outer layers, so try to remove as few layers as possible when peeling. 

Paprika is the 4th most popular spice in the world! It’s made from dried and ground peppers and the taste can range from sweet to very hot. Paprika is especially popular in Hungary where there’s even a paprika museum! 

Sweet Peppers are among nature’s strongest sources of vitamin C. Sweet bell peppers also supply lutein for eye health and vitamin E for skin, hair, and nails.

Organixx Clean Sourced Collagens blend contains five types of collagen from four sources. What’s more, it’s combined with targeted nutrients such as zinc, vitamin C, and vitamin B6 which specifically enhance the bioavailability and potency of collagen. Clean Sourced Collagens is formulated from the ground up to enhance and support your body’s natural ability to heal and rebuild itself from the INSIDE out.
