Plantain-Black Bean Veggie Burgers

  • Prep Time 0:25
  • Cook Time 0:10
  • Estimated Cost $8.00

I find most veggie burgers pretty underwhelming. They either taste like cardboard or they try (and fail) to taste like meat. These burgers are in an entirely different league. Sweet plantains and earthy black beans provide a sturdy yet tender base, while smoky chipotle peppers give the burgers a nice kick. Serve these with the usual suspects (ketchup, mustard, etc), or whip up some cilantro aioli (4 tbsp mayonnaise or vegan mayonnaise with 1 diced clove garlic and a handful of chopped cilantro stirred in).


  • 1 15-oz. can black beans, drained $1.50
  • 1 very ripe plantain, diced $0.50
  • 1/4 red onion, diced, plus a few rings for garnish $0.50
  • 2 chipotle peppers (from a can in adobo), chopped finely $1.50 for 7 oz.
  • 1 small handful cilantro $1
  • salt and pepper to taste Pantry
  • 3 tbsp all-purpose flour Pantry
  • 1 tbsp vegetable or olive oil Pantry
  • 1 ripe tomato, sliced $0.50
  • 4 hamburger buns $3 for 6

Recipe Serves 4


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine black beans and plantain. Smash gently together. Stir in onion, cilantro, salt, pepper and flour. Form mixture into 4 patties and set aside.
  2. Heat oil over high heat in a large frying pan. Cook burgers for 3-4 minutes on each side or until crisp and browned. Serve on buns with tomato and onion.

I completely agree with you about the mediocrity (at best) of most veggie burgers. But these look incredible! Also very worth trying is the plant burger from the Plant Cafe…I was skeptical at first, but with beets, cashews, bulgur, and who knows what else, it completely won me over.

Gabi! Trying these with bananas and cumin instead of fresh cilantro. Apparently argentinos don’t like fresh cilantro (or spicy anything at all) and I can’t find plantains anywhere!!
