Garam Masala Black Bean Burgers

Hey there!

I bring to you a black bean burger recipe, spiced with an amazing fair-trade garam masala blend from India.

Garam Masala by Seasonality Spices

This masala blend is provided by Seasonality Spices, and it’s definitely a must try.

I learned that garam masala is one of the most traditional masala blends of India, so knowing that this specific garam masala is hand-crafted at the source, you know you’re getting something fantastic.

This blend is rich with flavors of pepper, cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, and cumin; giving a warm, sweetening flavor to anything you make with it.

Back to the Burgers

I mashed some canned black beans with a whisk so that I could achieve a balance of mashed and whole beans, to try and keep some texture in the burger.

I’ve seen spinach coming up over and over as a really good source of iron, so I couldn’t resist to cook some down with some aromatics, and add it to the mixture (the more I learn about various fruits and veggies and their health benefits, the more I try to use them in a way that makes sense).

Add some high-quality garam masala, and enjoy some sweet and smoky goodness.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes


  • 1 can black beans rinsed
  • 1/2 tbsp oil (I used olive)
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp red onion
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp garam masala


  1. Mash the beans with a whisk or in a mixer (for texture, leave some of the beans whole).  

  2. Heat the oil in a medium size skillet, then add the garlic and onion and cook for about two minutes. Then, add the spinach, and stir until it all cooks down (adding a splash of water helps). 

  3. Add the cooked spinach mixture to the beans, and form the mixture into patties. 

  4. Heat a little oil in a skillet, add the burger, then cover and cook for about three minutes each side on medium high heat. 

  5. Enjoy!

For my meal, I topped the burger with some sliced mango (Kevin gets the credit for those perfect little slices) then sprinkled some more garam masala on top. Yumminess central <3

p.s. should you decide to eat it with naan like I did, make sure to check that it has no dairy (I made that mistake).

I hope you get a chance to try the recipe, and totally feel free to share your thoughts.
