  • Rinse and drain black beans. Add ground flax seed and mash half the black beans with a fork, making sure to incorporate the ground flax seed into the mash.
  • Let the ground flax and mashed beans sit together while you grate the zucchini. You can use your food processor attachment or grate by hand. 
  • Once the zucchini has been grated, you will have to wring out the excess water. You can use your hands or a clean cheese cloth to do this. 
  • Add the zucchini to the black bean and ground flax mixture. Add the spices and stir well, to fully incorporate the zucchini and spices. 
  • Form the burgers into 6 equal size patties, about the size of your palm cupped. 
  • Preheat a cast iron skillet (affiliate link) over medium heat. Spray with non-stick or add about 1 tsp. avocado oil and brush it out to cover the surface.
  • Add the vegan black bean burgers and cook for 6 minutes over medium heat. Flip and cook 4 additional minutes. 
  • Serve with your favorite toppings.
