Tired of burgers that fall apart when you're cooking or eating them? This burger, with the addition of vital wheat gluten, solves that problem. I cooked these in a skillet, but I'm eager to try them on the grill too. If you try these on the grill, please let me know how they turned out!


1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

1/4 cup vital wheat gluten

1 tsp Bragg's liquid aminos

1 Tbsp vegan worchestire

1 Tbsp vegan mayonnaise

1 Tbsp nutritional yeast

2 Tbsp grated beets

1 clove garlic, chopped

1/4 cup cooked quinoa


1. Bake beans on cookie sheet @350°F for 20 minutes.

2. Combine all ingredients in food processor, then pulse until well mixed.

3. Remove from processor, form dough ball then knead for 3 minutes to activate vital wheat gluten.

4. Form into 4 patties then let sit for 15 minutes before cooking.

5. Cook in skillet with a little oil over medium heat until well browned on both sides, pressing patties down with spatula, approximately 3 to 4 minutes per side. Add 2 Tbsp water, cover and continue to cook until water evaporated.

6. Serve on buns with desired condiments. **Makes 4 burgers.
