Easy 5-Ingredient Veggie Burgers

  • Author: Jasmine @ Sweet Simple Vegan
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 3 burgers


Easy and delicious veggie burgers crafted with just 5 simple ingredients. They’re effortless to prepare and cook in only 30 minutes!


  • 1 (15oz.) can of black beans, drained and rinsed (or 1 3/4 cups) (or beans of choice– see notes)
  • 1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 large shallot, roughly chopped (or 1/2 medium onion)
  • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon old bay seasoning (or seasoning blend of choice– see notes)
  • Black pepper, to taste


  1. In the bowl of a food processor, add in all of the ingredients and process for 15 to 20 seconds, or until the mixture begins to come together, scraping the sides as needed. Scrape all of the mixture into a small bowl and place the bowl into the refrigerator for 30 minutes to set.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and set aside.
  3. Remove the bowl from the fridge. Scoop out 1/2 cup sized scoops from the mixture and using wet hands, form the mixture into patties. We made 3 patties total. Place the patties onto the prepared baking sheet and place them into the oven for 15 minutes. Flip the patties over and then bake for an additional 10 minutes or until the patties are browned and feel solid.


  • If you would like to speed up the cooking process, you can also cook these burgers on a pan. For this. we suggest heating about 1 tablespoon of cooking oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and cooking the patties on each side until browned, about 5 minutes per side.
  • We have tried this recipe with cannellini beans, red beans and pinto beans and all have worked well!
  • If you do not have Old bay, feel free to use a seasoning blend of your choice — just be sure to add salt the blend does not have any.
