Vegan recipe: BBQ black bean burgers
Black bean patties
  • 1can black beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1cup cooked rice (any kind works)
  • 1/4cup BBQ sauce
  • 1/2cup flour
  • 1/2cup bread crumbs
  • 1 onion (diced)
  • 1clove garlic (crushed)
  • 1/2tbsp tomato paste
  • 2tsp paprika
  • 2tsp cumin
Burger toppings
  • 6 burger buns
  • cheese*
  • sliced tomato
  • lettuce (we used Cos)
  • bbq sauce
  • mayo or mustard
  1. Add all the patty ingredients except the flour to the food processor and blend until everything is well mixed. Slowly add the flour while the food processor is on the slowest setting and blend until it is mixed in.
  2. Put the mixture in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, if you don’t have time for this you can omit this step but your patties may be slightly more sticky and difficult to form.
  3. To make the patties take 1/2 a cup of the mixture and roll into a ball, flatten the ball and shape into a round patty about 1.5 cm thick, this will make around 6 patties. If you prefer your patties thinner then use 1/4 of a cup of mixture.
  4. Heat a tbsp of olive oil in a pan on high heat. Place the patties in the pan and brown them for 2 minutes on each side. Turn the heat down to medium and cook for 10 minutes, flipping regularly. Turn the heat down further if they look as though they might be starting to burn.
  5. Toast the buns and assemble your burgers!
