Black Bean Burgers with Sriracha Mayonnaise

Black Bean Burgers with Sriracha Mayonnaise

March 16, 2017


Veggie burgers often get a bad rap. Not ours. Made with black beans, soy sauce and sesame seeds, they’ve won over even our toughest meat-loving critics. Could be thanks to the sriracha that seasons both the patties as well as the special sauce that we spread on the toasted brioche buns. Topped off with cilantro sprigs and marinated cucumbers, these burgers are a hearty, oh-so-satisfying vegetarian meal in themselves. Cook, relax, and enjoy! - Marley Spoon & Martha 



  • 3 ½ teaspoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 Persian cucumber
  • 1 large clove garlic
  • 4 sprigs cilantro
  • 2 cups Black Bean Flakes
  • ½ cups water
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • ½ teaspoon toasted sesame oil, plus 2 tablespoons for frying
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha
  • ¾ cup panko breadcrumbs
  • ¼ cup sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 brioche hamburger buns
  • (optional)1 bunch breakfast radishes
  • coarse salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 ½ teaspoons sugar
  • 1 large egg

  • Recipe Steps

    1. Marinate cucumbers
    Mix ½ teaspoon sugar and 2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar. Wash, then slice cucumbers as thinly on a diagonal. Toss cucumbers in vinegar mixture.

    2. Combine ingredients
    Peel and finely chop garlic. Remove cilantro leaves from ½ the stems, then finely chop the leaves. Combine the beans with hot water and mix in the garlic, the chopped cilantro, ¾ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon pepper, soy sauce, 1 teaspoon sugar, 1½ teaspoons vinegar, ½ teaspoon sesame oil, and 1 teaspoon sriracha.

    3. Mash and mix together
    When beans are rehydrated, stir in egg and bread crumbs until combined. Refrigerate for 5-10 minutes.

    4. Form patties
    Form bean mixture into two patties, approx. 3-4 inches wide and 1 inch thick. Coat patties completely in sesame seeds.

    5. Cook burgers
    Heat remaining 2 tablespoons sesame oil in a skillet over medium-low heat. Place the patties in the skillet and cook them 5 minutes on the first side. Flip them to the other side, cook 3 minutes. Cover the skillet and cook for another 3 minutes, or until the burgers are heated through. Stir together mayonnaise and remaining 1 teaspoon sriracha.

    6. Assemble
    Cut buns in half and toast. Spread sriracha mayonnaise on each of the buns. Place the burgers on top. Remove cucumbers from marinade and divide among burgers then top with cilantro sprigs and top bun. Serve with radishes. Enjoy!


     Psst.  I like sweet potato fries or homemade potato chips instead of radishes.
