Spicy black bean dragon burger

You don’t need ground beef to make a delicious burger. This black bean patty recipe packs so much flavor that you might find yourself reaching for a glass of water. It packs lots of protein, too.

Serves: 4; Portion size: 1 patty.


For the slaw:


1/2 cup

shredded green cabbage

3 tbsp.

thinly sliced red onion

3 tbsp.

thinly sliced carrots

3 tbsp.

thinly sliced red bell peppers

2 tsp.

chopped fresh cilantro

1 tbsp.

Sriracha hot chili sauce

1/3 tsp.

cayenne pepper spice

2 tsp.

unseasoned rice wine vinegar

1-1/2 tbsp.

light mayonnaise



For the burger:



Olive/canola oil 90/10 blend in spray bottle


black bean burger, meatless, 3.3 ounces


romaine lettuce leaves


slices of tomato


whole wheat hamburger buns


  1. Combine all the slaw ingredients in a bowl and mix until all ingredients are thoroughly combined. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour, can be made 1 day in advance.
  2. Lightly spray a grill or griddle pan with the oil. Cook the burgers for 6-7 minutes or until the internal temperature has reached 145 degrees. Keep warm until ready to assemble.
  3. Lightly toast the hamburger buns on a griddle or flat top. Place a leaf of romaine lettuce down and top with two slices of tomato. Add the hot black bean burger and top with 1/3 cup of the slaw. Place the top burger bun on top of the slaw and serve right away.
