Do you love black bean burgers but hate the hassle of making them? Well, your days of waiting for a Black Bean Burger to hit your local restaurant’s menu are over! With an air fryer, you can easily make this delicious and nutritious vegan burger at home. Plus, it’s freezer-friendly so you can always have one on hand when the mood strikes. Ready to get started? Let’s go!
In a medium bowl, mash the black beans with a fork or potato masher until they are mostly broken up. Then add your seasonings, diced onions, garlic, and breadcrumbs, and mix well until combined.
Brush the air fryer basket with olive oil. Place the burgers in the basket in a single layer and mist with more olive oil. Air fry at 400 degrees F for 10 minutes, flipping once halfway through cooking, until crispy and cooked through. Serve on toasted hamburger buns with avocado and tomato slices, if desired.
