Black Bean Burgers


  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 can black beans, well drained
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs or 2 pieces of vegan bread, crumbled
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp seasoned salt
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • oil for frying


Sautee the onions till soft, about 3-5 minutes.  
In a large bowl, mash the beans until almost smooth. Add sauteed onions and the rest of the ingredients, except the oil, adding the flour a few tablespoons at a time to combine well. Mixture will be thick.

Form bean mixture into patties, approximately ½ inch thick and fry patties in a small amount of oil until slightly firm. Make veggie burgers and enjoy!  Vegan Gal rating of 5.5!

Vegan Cookies 'n' Cream Cupcakes
1 cup soy milk
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup raw sugar
1/3 cup canola oil
1-1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
10 coarsely chopped vegan chocolate sandwich cookies, like Newman’s Own - use a food processor to "chop" these
6 vegan chocolate sandwich cookies halved for garnish

1. Preheat over to 350˚F. Line a muffin pan with 12 paper or foil muffin liners. I got when I made this batch.
2. In a large bowl combine the soy milk and vinegar and allow it to sit for a few minutes until the milk curdles. Once curdled, add the sugar, oil and vanilla extract and beat with a hand mixer until foamy.
3. In a separate bowl whisk the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add the dry ingredients slowly to the wet ingredients while mixing with a hand mixer until well combined. Fold in coarsely chopped oreos with a spatula.
4. Fill cupcake liners halfway with batter. Bake for 18–20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely on a cooling rack before icing. Garnish each cupcake with a halved cookie.
