Meatless meals will be so tasty when these hearty bean burgers are on the menu. Guacamole and sour cream make it seem decadent. —Jill Reichardt, St. Louis, Missouri
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2/3 cup dry bread crumbs

  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

"Delicious. I love how quickly they come together. I skipped the jalapeno and cilantro while adding salsa instead of a tomato. Served them with some red onion on top and sweet potato fries on the side. Just wish I'd had some guacamole!!"

"I've never eaten meatless burgers before - let alone make them! But these were hands down the tastiest and easiest burgers that I've ever made! I cannot wait to make these again!"
