  • Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl with the beans and mix everything well. Refrigerate for 2 hours, if possible.
  • Divide the mixture into 6 equal parts and make patties.
  • If frying: heat a pan over medium heat. Add a small amount of oil and cook until browned and warmed through (about 5-6 minutes per side). If baking: gently brush the patties with some oil. Place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes at 400°F.

How to Store and Reheat them

Store any leftover Vegan Black Bean Burgers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days in an airtight container or ziplock bag. You can also freeze them with a layer of parchment paper in between to avoid them sticking together. They will last for about 3 months and just need to thaw overnight. Reheat over the stove, grill, or in the oven until warmed through.

Can you Make these Ahead of Time?

Yes, you can prepare and then freeze these Vegan Black Bean Burger patties uncooked. Just stack them between parchment paper in a freezer-safe container or ziplock bag. They should thaw overnight, but you can also just bake or fry them straight from the freezer. The frozen uncooked burgers last for up to 3 months.
