The Best Supermarket Black Bean Burgers

In the wide world of "plant-based" burgers, no category seems to make as much sense as the black bean burger, at least to me. Think about it: If you wanted to mimic a patty of browned beef, which is basically a puck of protein slicked in a little fat, what substance is better suited to the purpose than black beans, cooked until they're soft enough to mash? Other than lab-grown fake meat and "brown beans," I'm sort of at a loss.

Regardless, black bean burgers have proven over the years to be an incredibly popular option for those who choose to avoid burgers of the steer variety, and it seems that every plant-based-burger purveyor has at least one black bean product to offer consumers.

We faced a bit of a conundrum with our black bean burger test, because, as all good Serious Eats employees know, there is really only one good black bean burger, baby, and it's Kenji's really awesome black bean burger. (I'm not calling it that just because that's my opinion, although it is, but because that is literally their name: "Really Awesome Black Bean Burgers.")

And, while we certainly understand that some of our readers value convenience over quality, Kenji's black bean burger recipe isn't all that labor- or time-intensive—particularly when you take into account the fact that once you form the patties, they can be stashed in the freezer for whenever the desire to eat a black bean burger strikes.

That said, if you're always on the lookout for a good store-bought black bean burger (one that, as Kenji says in his article accompanying the black bean burger recipe, is a "delicious thing-to-stick-in-a-bun all on [its] own"), or if you're specifically looking for the best vegan store-bought black bean burger (as Kenji's is not vegan), this taste test is for you.
