kikkoman products used:


2 teaspoons Kikkoman® Sesame Oil
1 carrot, diced
1 celery stalk, diced
¼ onion, diced
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1- 15 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup mayo
2 teaspoons Kikkoman® Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce
2 teaspoons Kikkoman® Rice Vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
2 cups coleslaw mix or chopped cabbage
1 ½ cup quinoa, cooked
¼ cup. Kikkoman® Panko Bread Crumbs
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
4 tablespoons Kikkoman® Hoisin Sauce
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
4 burger buns
Sesame seeds, for garnish


  1. In a large skillet, heat sesame oil over medium heat.
  2. Add carrot, celery, onion, and garlic. Cook until soft for about 6-7 minutes.
  3. Add in the black beans and cook for another 8 minutes.
  4. While the bean mixture is cooking, prepare the sauce: whisk together mayo, sriracha, rice vinegar, and sugar in a small bowl.
  5. In a larger bowl, combine the coleslaw and toss with all but 2 tablespoons of the prepared sauce.
  6. In a separate bowl, combine the cooked bean mixture, quinoa (make sure it’s already cooked), panko, egg, cilantro, and 2 tablespoons of hoisin. Cover and place in fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  7. Heat vegetable oil in a heavy bottomed skillet on medium high. Divide the burger mixture into four equal patties and place them into the skillet.
  8. Cook black bean burgers, turning every couple of minutes, until they are cooked through. This could take around 10-12 minutes.
  9. When they’re done, pour 1/4 tablespoon of hoisin on one side of the burger and flip it over so that the hoisin caramelizes to the burger. Do the same on the other side. This should only take 30 seconds per side.
  10. To serve, spread ½ tablespoon of the prepared sauce on each burger bun and top with the black bean burger and ¼ of the coleslaw mixture and sesame seeds.


Even people who love soy sauce and use it all the time are often surprised to learn what it is and how it’s made. We make ours from just four simple ingredients—water, soybeans, wheat, and salt. Those ingredients are transformed through a traditional brewing process—much like making wine or beer—that has remained unchanged for centuries.
