Made with a base of black and kidney beans, buttery pecans, oats and fresh veggies, these vegan pecan bean burgers are the perfect vehicle for your favorite burger toppings. 


  • 1/4 cup fresh pecans
  • 1 can black beans (15 ounces), rinsed, drained and patted dry
  • 1 can kidney beans (15 ounces), rinsed, drained and patted dry
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • 1/4 cup grated onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • Dash of hot sauce or cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Combine the beans in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Using a food processor, pulse the pecans and oats until coarsely chopped. (You do not want a super-fine mixture.) Add the grated carrots, grated onion, 3/4 of the beans, all of the spices and the olive oil and process again, mixing everything together.
  3. Using a spatula, transfer mixture into a large bowl and add the remaining beans. Wet your hands and form the bean mixture into six patties.
  4. Place the bean burger patties on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray or, preferably, a baking sheet lined with a silicone baking mat, and bake at 300 degrees for 40 minutes, flipping the burgers halfway through.
  5. Remove burgers from the oven, allow to cool slightly and serve on your favorite burger buns, loaded with your favorite toppings.
