Teriyaki Black Bean Burgers

Teriyaki Black Bean Burgers

My son is not only gluten-free but vegan, so when having a summer barbecue I like to make sure I make something that he can eat that looks and feels like what the rest of the family might be eating – i.e. black bean burgers instead of regular burgers. We recently had a family barbecue and this Teriyaki Black Bean Burgers recipe was the vegan star of the show!

These were made with a combination of walnuts, black beans, and gluten-free breadcrumbs for the burger patties, plus seasonings, onion, and San-J gluten-free teriyaki sauce for great flavor. Topped with onion, pineapple, and a sauce made with roasted red pepper and vegan mayo, these burgers were bursting with variety and flavor. I was rather impressed, I must say!

You can serve these on a toasted gluten-free bun (make sure they are egg and dairy free if making this a vegan meal). Pair these burgers with my Asian-inspired sweet potato fries recipe, just sub out the regular mayonnaise for vegan mayo.

  • ½ cup walnuts
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained, liquid reserved
