Quick and easy to prepare, these meat-free burgers make a great midweek meal. A black bean burger would simply be a patty made from beans if we didn't add some pizazz. The sautéed garlic, onion, + pepper combo is a great start, but a little cumin, worcestershire sauce, smoked paprika, feta cheese, and chili pepper turn black beans into the BEST black bean burger. These bean burgers are loaded with bold flavours and make a hearty option for vegetarians.
Sheila's Spicy Bean Burgers instructions
- Gently fry the onion until it sweats (about five minutes) – in one tablespoon of the coconut oil.
- Add the grated carrot, garlic, chilli powder, smoked paprika, cumin and vegetable bouillon powder and cook over a low heat for a further 5 minutes, and then put the mixture to one side.
- Place the beans in a large flat-bottomed bowl or saucepan and roughly mash them with a potato masher.
- Add the mustard, tamari sauce and tomato puree, and mix well.
- Next, stir the sauteed vegetable and spice mix into the mashed beans and incorporate the quinoa, oats or buckwheat flakes.
- Moisten your hands and form the mixture into 4 burgers, about 8cm across.
- Warm 1 tbsp of coconut oil in a non-stick pan, over a medium to low heat. Fry the burgers, cooking for 5 to 8 minutes on each side.
- Serve straight away with a large salad. I also suggest frying and caramelising a few extra pieces of red onion and adding some white bufala cheese to sprinkle over the burgers when they are served.
Spicy Black Bean Burger Haiku: "Yum BB patties. Expected more of a kick but still they were good." W/ the Sriracha chili powder & jalapeno I anticipated fire-breath w/ these but they were surprisingly tame (well OK I wouldn't have given one to my pre-schooler) but I like things scorching. These are dairy free and vegan with no added salt, sugar, fat or additives that supermarket burgers contain. On the show I used this homemade black bean recipe, but it's much easier just to crack open a couple of cans of seasoned black beans. So if you have a last-minute hankering for black bean burgers, you don't have to wait four hundred years while you cook a batch from scratch.
