Bean Burgers ~ Jeff NovickThis Bean Burgers recipe from Jeff Novick is the newest addition to the Slender For Life™ Recipe Library. I sure do love a burger – just as long as it isn’t beef, chicken, fist or pork and as long as it isn’t made with cheese. There are great plant based burger recipes and of course a portobello mushroom works great. Top it off with lettuce, tomato, horseradish, stone ground mustard and BBQ sauce and your mouth will explode with satisfying flavors.

Bean Burgers


2 cans (15oz) of Low or No Sodium Kidney Beans
1 cup of Rolled Oats (uncooked)
1 cup of cooked Brown Rice
¼ Cup of Tomato Sauce
Seasonings of your choice


Rinse and drain the beans thoroughly and then pour them into a large bowl.
Mash them well. It’s ok to leave some chunks in. I used an old-fashioned (like grandma used to use) potato masher

Add the oatmeal, rice, sauce, and spices.
Make sure your hands are clean and dig in – mix and squeeze. Just like mom used to make her meatloaf.
Once mixed well – form and shape into patties.
Important Part! Place the burgers on a plate in the fridge and forget about them for at least 20 minutes. This allows them to set up and get firm.


I like my burgers on a grill but they can also be baked, broiled or pan seared.

For grilling I baste mine with either oil free BBQ or Teriyaki Sauce for extra flavor. Be careful turning as these have the tendency to break apart.

Depending on your grill and distance from the heat – grill 10 minutes or so on each side or until done.
Now all that’s left is to dress them up with lots of veggies and the condiments of your choice.
