These vegetarian cilantro black bean burgers are so delicious with a fresh cilantro flavor and easy to make. I have another version of black bean burgers here, but this one is now the favorite veggie burger in our home. My first version which incorporates chickpeas has never been a big hit with my kids even though my husband and I always enjoyed them. This black bean burger was even mistaken for meat burgers by two of my little guys. They’re simpler and processing them in the food processor vs just mashing, like in the first version, make these more palatable for finicky eaters.
I don’t know about you, but I just can not get enough of this magnificent herb. I like to put it in so much, don’t be surprised if you see it pop up quite a few times on my site. In any case, it’s so good for you, so why not?! If you love it like I do, use it up! It does so much good for the body as you can see here.
Making these Bean-y Burgers
These black bean burgers are processed in the food processor for a nice smooth texture making them more pleasing to finicky eaters. As I mentioned above, these are the favored black bean burger now by my kids, probably because of texture.
These burgers are easy and fast to make just by putting all the ingredients in the food processor. This takes out the extra labor of mashing beans as some other recipes call for. It’s a personal preference, but I think these burgers are great for those who don’t normally like vegetarian bean burgers.
Vegetarian options don’t need to mean boring. This burger can be dressed up in many different forms. Since this burger already has cilantro flavor it’s great paired with a guacamole or a sriracha sauce for those spicy food lovers out there. Any way you like your burger this one can be played up; even as a basic lettuce tomato and onion kind of burger with your favorite special sauce.
