Embark on a culinary journey with our recipe for The Easiest Black Bean Burger You'll Ever Make, infused with the nutritional prowess of Lion's Mane Mushroom powder. This simple yet satisfying dish combines the convenience of homemade burgers with the health-boosting properties of superfoods, promising a flavorful and nourishing experience.

Veggie burgers don’t always get the best reputation. Store-bought versions (though not all of them) are usually tiny (causing you to need to grill multiple to feel satisfied) or full of random ingredients (like processed protein from soy or gluten) or are not the best tasting things on the planet.

This easy, homemade black bean veggie burger is a great solution. Not to mention that it requires hardly any time to make AND is perfectly easy to customize to your liking and taste buds (and what’s on your spice rack).

Check out the recipe below plus 13 different fun ways to eat it!

The Easiest Black Bean Burger You’ll Ever Make (and 13 Ways to Eat it!)


  • ½ cup black beans (cooked or canned), mashed with a fork
  • ¼ cup ground flaxseed
  • 1 teaspoon Sunwarrior Organic Lion’s Mane Powder
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder or paprika
  • ½ teaspoon onion and/or garlic powder
  • a pinch or two or three of Sunwarrior Sea Salt

  • any additional chopped fresh herbs or spices that tickle your fancy


  1. Combine the mashed beans with the flaxseeds, powders, herbs and spices.
  2. Using your hands, form the mixture into one big patty. (Add a teaspoon or so of water if it's having a hard time sticking together.)
  3. Cook on a grill or skillet that’s been sprayed with coconut oil for about 5 minutes on each side.
