Moroccan White-Bean Burgers

Check out these yummy bean burgers from Redbook Magazine.  They’re easy, healthy, and tasty.   The original, plus nutritional info, can be found here. I slightly altered it by adding 1/2 a lemon’s juice, using plain mayo, dropping the salt and a couple spices, and substituting panko breadcrumbs for regular since that was what I had on hand.  I definitely plan on using this recipe as a guide for black bean burgers in the future.

  • 1/2  red bell pepper, quartered
  • 3  scallions, quartered
  • 1/2 c. cilantro leaves
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 t cumin
  • 1 can (15.5-ounce) white beans (cannellini), drained and rinsed
  • 3/4 c. breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • olive oil
  • Pita breads
  • Mayo
  • Lettuce leaves and tomato slices

In a food processor, pulse red bell pepper, scallions, cilantro, garlic, and cumin until vegetables are very finely chopped. Add beans; pulse until beans are coarsely mashed.

Transfer mixture to a bowl; add breadcrumbs and egg. Mix until well combined. Shape into 8-9 (1/4-cup) burgers. Place on a plate and refrigerate 30 minutes.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add burgers and cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Place on a paper towel.

Cut pitas in half and toast lightly. Spread inside with mayo and stuff with lettuce, tomato, and burger.

  1. That looks really light and healthy! It sounds so yummy. We just love the taste of Morrocan 🙂

  2. Yeah, they’re nice and light but don’t leave you still feeling hungry. I had them with a side of grape leaves and feta cheese. Mmm : )
