  5. Place oats in food processor and process until coarse mixture remains.
  6. Mix in the onion, garlic, corn, black beans, quinoa, sunflower seeds, and ground oats, until just combined.

  1. I am making these tonight! Mainly because I happen to have all the ingredients on hand (save the sunflower seeds). But also because I’m always looking for vegetarian meals to try out.
    Also, the freezing directions are identical to the cooking directions with no mention of freezing them. I’m sure it’s just an oversight.

      1. They were awesome! I’m gonig to make another really large batch, and use half to make burritos with spanish rice and cheese.

        1. Ooh that’s a great idea to use them for burritos! Yum! Thanks for sharing. I’m so glad you liked them.

  2. I’m allergic to onions and zucchini (and a couple of other vegetables)- but really love the idea of Meatless Mondays. Can I make these without onions, or will they fall apart?Could you point me in the direction of some onion-free recipes?

    1. Nope, they definitely won’t fall apart without the onions; I’ve actually made them before with onion powder when I was out of fresh onions. If you want something crunchy in there, celery or leeks would work too if you’re not allergic.

  3. These were really sticky and hard to form into patties. The only thing I did different was I didn’t have any corn so I just added extra beans instead. Any suggestions to make them easier to work with? Thanks!

    1. Our test cook suggested wetting your hands before forming them into patties. But, yes, more beans and no corn would likely make them a bit more sticky and difficult to form. In that case, you might want to slip in some flour or cornmeal to make the mix less squishy.

  4. I’m very excited about trying these! They look fantastic! I was looking at the recipe a few days ago and clicked on the Taco Seasoning link and it worked just fine, but when I just tried it the site said it was not available. Might just be a problem with my link, but wanted to ask if there is another site I could find the recipe on? Thanks!

      1. Hi Kristi.. Your recipe looks delicious can’t wait to try it. I am also interested in the Taco Seasoning mix recipe but the link didn’t take me anywhere. 🙁 I’ll try and check back here again to see if the link works that you posted. Really enjoy your site!!

  5. I made these last night – our favorite black bean burgers to date! I wet my hands (per your suggestion) and had no trouble forming the patties. Even made the taco seasoning (delicious). I’m going to try a mango salsa on them next time. Thanks for a great recipe!

  6. Cubes? Where is cubing mentioned? 😉 I am assuming it is reference to the sweet potato but I am thinking that an hour at 350 there wouldn’t be a lot of cubing. Making for my sister and her daughter for family reunion for burger night. Have you ever tried grilling them on a plate? Thanks heaps!

    1. Mine were more chunks than cubes, but yes, the potatoes. And, no, not on a plate, I’ve only grilled them on a grill/griddle thingy on the stovetop or baked them.

  7. made these tonight — and other than using garlic powder (no garlic bulb in the house) made recipe as stated and really enjoyed them, as did my husband! also enjoyed the link to the taco seasoning, which i can use for other recipes as well. thanks again!
