Black bean burger

I’ve adapted a Peta recipe that I found on twitter to create this really tasty vegan bean burger. It’s packed with fibre filling wholewheat pasta, please free to use gluten free if you need to

ingredients for black bean burger

400g cooked wholewheat pasta

1 tin drained black beans (or any other beans you have in the cupboard, red kidney beans would work well)

1 teaspoon chilli flakes or ½ – 1 fresh chilli chopped

50g sun-dried tomatoes

90g BBQ sauce  – I didn’t have any so I used 65g tomato ketchup, 25g brown sauce,  ½ tsp of smoked paprika and 1 tsp liquid smoke

1 tsp lemon juice

handful chopped parsley or coriander (optional)

½ tsp salt

1 onion – chopped

1 tsp vegetable/rapeseed/olive oil

3 cloves of garlic

extra oil for brushing the burgers

small bowl of water to wet your hands

Pre heat an oven 180oC, 160oC Fan, 350oF, gas 4

Add the oil to a frying pan and cook the chopped onions for 5-8 minutes, until soft and golden.  Add the chopped garlic and salt. If it sticks add some water, not more oil

Tip the cooked pasta, beans, chilli, sun-dried tomatoes, herbs (if using), lemon juice and BBQ sauce in to a food processor and blend until you get a thick paste.  Scoop out into a bowl and mix thoroughly with a large spoon or spatula.  Add the cooked onions and mix again.

Lightly grease a baking tray or use greaseproof paper.  Spoon out 6-8 spoonfuls of the mixture and place on the baking tray.  Dip your hands in water and gently shape the burgers and flatten slightly.  Brush lightly with some extra oil

I served mine in sour dough bread with sweet potato wedges and it was delicious. I had the left overs with mash potato and baked beans (pure comfort food!) and finally in a sandwich with mustard fried onions

How did you eat yours?
