Southwest Black Bean Burgers (Air-Fryer Recipe)

Meal: Main Course

Cuisine: American

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 8-10 minutes

Temperature: 400 degrees Fahrenheit

Servings: 6 burger patties


1-15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained

1/2 cup cooked quinoa, packed*

1/2 cup frozen corn, thawed (or canned)

1/2 cup red bell pepper, chopped

1/2 cup onion, chopped (red or yellow)

2 tbs extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 cup fresh cilantro, packed

2 tsp garlic powder

2 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp crushed red pepper

1 tbs coconut sugar, optional for flavor balance

1 1/2-2 tsp himalayan salt

1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds

1/4 cup brown rice flour (or other gluten-free flour)


Step 1 - Combine all ingredients except for brown rice flour and corn into a food processor. Pulse until pureéd, while still leaving some texture and chunkiness.

Step 2 - Remove mixture from food processor and place into a large bowl. Stir in brown rice flour and corn until mixture is well-combined. Place until the refrigerator for 15 minutes to thicken and set.

Step 3 - Using a measuring cup, take 1/3 cup of burger mixture and form into patties.

Step 4 - Set your air-fryer to 400 degrees and cook for 8-10 minutes, depending on how cooked you would like your burgers. Burgers will come out softer at first. Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes prior to serving

Step 5 - Serve on top of a salad, on a burger bun with mashed avocado, salsa, and red onion, or sandwich style with all of your favorite vegetables as imaged.
