BLACK BEAN BURGER

These patties are perfectly seasoned and not dry or overly mushy! I had a big plate for lunch with a mixture of things so this is the best photo I got…therefore you must try them yourself 😉 All you need is your food processor and a frying pan, plenty of olive oil and your ready for some easy vegan burgers!

Makes 4-5

Ingredients

1 can black beans drained, rinsed and blotted with paper towel so soak up moisture

1 red pepper

Clove of garlic

1 large spring onion

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp rosemary

1tsp thyme

Few tablespoons of GF plain flour or gram flour (this is just to help make them more pliable)

Salt and pepper

Dash of paprika

1 flax egg

Olive oil for frying

Method

  1. First you want to roughly chop your veg and ensure all black beans are pretty dried out to prevent extra moisture. Also prepare your flax egg and let it gel together.
  2. Next place everything into your food processor and blitz until it starts to come together, not to much though as you still want a chunky texture!
  3. Now heat up some oil in your pan, use a tablespoon to scoop some mixture in the pan and only press slightly to form burger shapes and fry for a couple minutes each side. The tip is not to keep pushing it down when its frying as this actually causes the mixture to separate or your burger to burn!
  4. Finally when all are cooked you can plate up or store them in your fridge/freezer! Perfect meal prep idea.
