  • 1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • 2. In a large, dry sauté pan over medium heat, add sliced onions. Add a pinch of salt and gently stir to prevent any burning. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil once the onions start turning colour. Continue cooking for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 3. Add the balsamic vinegar, stir the onions and cook at least another 5 minutes. The longer you slow cook the onions, the sweeter they will become. Transfer onions to a bowl and set aside.
  • 4. In the same sauté pan over medium high heat, add the black beans and 2 tbsp of olive oil. Allow them to cook through, around 5 minutes or until they begin to burst and crack.
  • 5. Pour black beans out into a large bowl and mash them with a fork or potato masher. Add all remaining burger ingredients, including 1/2 cup of caramelized onions. Mix well.
  • 6. Form by hand into six patties. Brush the top with a little more olive oil.
  • 7. Place patties on a baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes. Spread your favorite BBQ sauce over the patties halfway through cooking. Serve with your favorite burger toppings.
