  • 1 Large Mixing bowl
  • 1 food processor


  • 1 -15 oz can Black Beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 C Old Fashioned Oats (Choose GF if needed)
  • ½ Med Red Bell Pepper, diced
  • ½ Small Red Onion, diced
  • 3 TBSP Ketchup (Can substitute tomato paste)
  • 1 TBSP Vegan Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 TBSP Garlic, granulated
  • 1 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tsp Chili Powder
  • ¼ tsp Black Pepper


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Add the black beans to a large mixing bowl. Mash the beans until almost all of the beans have been mashed.
  • Add the oats to the food processor and pulse a few times to break up the flakes to smaller pieces, but not fine like a flour.
  • Add the oats to the mashed beans in the large mixing bowl.
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl (onions, red pepper, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, paprika, garlic and black pepper).
  • Mix thoroughly. I use my hands and also "squish" the mixture as I combine it so that it sticks together.
  • Using a 1/3 C measuring cup, scoop out the mixture. Form a pattie. Place it on a parchment lined baking sheet. Repeat until all of the mixture has been used.
  • Place the tray on the middle rack of the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Flip the patties, return them to the oven and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Serve and Enjoy!


*** The patties will keep in the refrigerator in an airtight container for about 3-4 days
***To freeze the patties, cool them after baking, then leaving them on the baking sheet, put in the freezer and freeze for 3-4 hours. When completely frozen, put them in a freezer safe bag. You can portion them in meal size portions if you like.
***Serving suggestions: As a side to a salad, on a bun, in a wrap or in a lettuce leaf, top with lettuce, tomato, onion and avocado and vegan tofu mayonnaise.
***To heat, cover with a damp paper towel while heating in the microwave.

A gluten free, nut free veggie patty (burger) recipe that is sure to please! I don’t recommend grilling these patties, but they are

easy to make and bake in the oven. Make a double batch and freeze some for some quick future meals!
