Yes, they are my favourite veggie burgers ever, and I can’t believe it took me so long to try making them!
They are so full of flavour, so quick to make, and so good for you too.
Here is my recipe, which has been tried and tested several times. I have tuned it to our taste, but try adding other herbs and spices if you prefer.
Black Bean Burgers
For four burgers you will need:
- 1 (400g/14oz) tin of black beans, drained and thoroughly rinsed
- 1 small onion, roughly chopped
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 4 tbsps oats
- 1 tbsp ground flaxseed (the sort that is like flour) or soya flour
- 2 tsps mixed herbs
- salt and pepper to taste
- dried breadcrumbs for coating
- oil for frying
Place all ingredients except the breadcrumbs and oil into a food mixer and process to a slightly chunky paste. Form into four patties, coat in the breadcrumbs and chill for at least thirty minutes. Then heat the oil in a frying pan and fry until golden brown. Serve in buns with fries and all the trimmings (e.g. gherkins, salad, ketchup and mustard or mayonnaise). 😀
