Makes 4 Burgers

Burger Ingredients

  • 1 SriMu Bonfire

  • 1 can Black Beans, drained and rinsed

  • ¼ cup finely chopped Red or Orange Bell Pepper

  • ½ Jalapeno, minced

  • 1 Green Onion, finely chopped

  • ¼ cup Flax Meal

  • ¼ cup Parsley, finely chopped

  • ¾ teaspoon Salt

  • ½ teaspoon Black Pepper

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ½ teaspoon Paprika

Cabbage & Optional Topping Ideas

  • 4 pieces Savoy Cabbage, rinsed and dried

  • 1 Tomato, thinly sliced

  • ½ Cucumber, thinly sliced

  • 4 Radishes, thinly sliced

  • ¼ Red Onion, thinly sliced

  • ½ Avocado, thinly sliced

  • 2 Cloud 9 balls or your favorite vegan mayo

  • Ketchup

  • Mustard

  • Cracked Black Pepper


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.  Generously oil a baking tray and set aside.

  2. Place the black beans in a mixing bowl and mash. Add the rest of the burger ingredients to the bowl and mix well.  Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.

  3. Score the mixture into 4. Using a ring mold or by hand shape each quarter into a round burger.  As you shape, firmly press the batter together so the burgers are well made.

  4. Place each burger on your baking tray and let cook for 15 minutes.  Remove from the oven and flip the burgers.  We like to gently remove the burger from the tray with a spatula, place the burger in our hand, then gently place the burger cooked side back on the tray. 

  5. Bake for another 10 minutes.  Remove from the oven and let cool for 15 minutes.  This step allows the burgers to firm up even more.  

  6. Place each burger in a cabbage leaf.  Smear with either Cloud 9, vegan mayo, ketchup, mustard or a combination of your favorite sauces.  Top with your most loved burger toppings - we enjoy tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes, red onion, avocado and a nice crack of black pepper.  Enjoy!
