  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate. Generously grease a sheet of aluminum foil with oil.
  2. Bring barley and water to a boil in a saucepan. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer until the barley is tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Mash black beans with a fork in a large bowl until thick and pasty. Stir barley, Cheddar cheese, mushrooms, onion, red bell pepper, parsley, eggs, garlic, salt, and black pepper into mashed black beans. Mix enough bread crumbs into bean mixture to form a sticky batter that holds together.
  4. Divide batter into 4 to 6 patties; place on prepared aluminum foil.
  5. Grill patties on the aluminum foil for about 8 minutes on each side.


  • Cook's Note:
  • These can also be cooked in a 375 degree F (190 degrees C) oven on an oiled baking sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes on each side.

This was really good, however the prep time took a lot longer than 15 minutes. I took the advice of another review and did not rinse the beans. I also drained any excess liquid from the barley. ...

Very good flavor for a veggie-burger (which I usually avoid like the plague). I followed the recipe as posted and had some problems with the patties falling apart. Even after I oiled the foil, t...

we couldn't make this as a burger. had to do it as a sort of a meatloaf, only without the meat. by the time it was done it was stuffing, directions on the barley need to be more clear because we...
