Mexicano Veggie Burger

Mexicano Veggie Burgers


The results were well worth the effort. To stay with the Mexican theme I served my burger on a warmed corn tortilla, topped with shredded romaine and salsa. On the side was a small serving of refried beans and Fiesta Rice – recipe coming soon. The burger is super flavorful and it’s quite filling too.

Mexicano Veggie Burger

  • 1 15-oz. can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 15 – oz can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • ½ yellow onion, diced – optional – lately I have been leaving this out and they are still just as good.
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons ancho chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated onion
  • ¼ cup ketchup

In a large bowl combine the beans,oats, brown rice, onions,seasonings and ketchup. Transfer mixture to the work bowl of your food processor and pulse a few times – until it sticks together. Depending on the size of your FP you might have to do this in two batches.

Divide mixture into 8 evenly sized patties. Cook in a nonstick frying pan sprayed with a little non stick spray for about 4 minutes per side.

Yield: 8 burgers

    This Mexicano veggie burger looks great – I will be trying this recipe soon. I make lentil burgers and black bean burgers regularly, so this will be a nice switch. I think I will substitute quinoa for the brown rice. Do you think that would work as a substitute?

      I haven’t tried it so I really don’t know – but give it a try! Experiments are how discover new treasures!

    Are these the veggie burgers that you make in large batches and freeze. Do you cook these before your freeze them? thank you for the cooking demo/batch cooking class. I enjoyed it and am working to incorporate your ideas.

      I am so glad you enjoyed the class and are incorporating the ideas. That makes me so happy!

      This is one of the veggie burgers I make. I actually like this one better http://nutmegnotebook.com/2013/03/vegetarian-chili-burgers-2/. You can double it and freeze them. So good!

      Happy Cooking,
