Easy Vegetarian Salsa Bean Burgers with just four ingredients you probably already have on hand - canned beans, oats, whole wheat flour, and salsa. You won't believe how easy they are to make and how much flavor they have.
As a food blogger, I usually feel the pressure to make everything homemade. However to be honest with you, there are certain things I sometimes dread to make at home and veggie burgers used to be one of them. Normally they require lots ingredients, chopping, blending or food processing, and waiting. Something I don't have time for most nights, especially when they don't end up tasting that much better than a frozen store bought burger.
Luckily this veggie burger is different! With just a few ingredients you probably already have at home, you can make a killer vegetarian burger flavored with your favorite salsa. The salsa is key here since it adds most of the flavor, so make sure to choose one you love. And if your salsa is lacking, just add your favorite spices or fresh herbs to kick things up a notch.

- 14 oz. canned black beans, drained and rinsed (any bean will work)
- 1/2 cup oats (not instant, GF if needed)
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (or oat/rice flour for gluten free)
- 1/4 cup salsa
- 2 tsp. olive oil
- Salt and pepper
Use a fork or wooden spoon to mash the beans. Stir in the oats, flour, salsa, salt, and pepper.
Check out the mixture. If it is too dry, add a touch more salsa. If it is too wet, add more flour.
Divide the mixture into four patties. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes to firm up the patties.
Heat the oil over medium high heat. Add the burgers to the pan and cook for 4-5 minutes per side.
Top with all your favorite burger toppings - mashed avocado, cheese, tomatoes, grilled onions, etc.
