Pinto Bean Burgers

Pinto Bean Burgers

*Serves 1*


  • 1/3 cup pinto beans or black beans, if preferred (best if no salt is added, otherwise rinse well before using)
  • 1 tbsp whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp worcestershire sauce
  • minced spinach, onion, and red pepper (about 1/2 tbsp each)
  • sprinkle of dill, red pepper flakes, black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp water


Combine all ingredients in a bowl.  Using a fork, mash everything together until you get something that looks like this.


Form a patty with the mashed ingredients using your hands.  Put the patty onto a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.


Let sit for 3-5 minutes or until slightly browned.  You should be able to shake the patty loose on the skillet when each side is done.  Using a spatula, flip the burger over and let sit for another 3-4 minutes or until slightly browned.  Place the patty onto a toasted, whole wheat bun and top with your favorite dressings.  Personally, I just like a little ketchup and mustard, but play around with your tastes!
