Vegan Bean Burger Recipe

recipe vegan Aug 09, 2020

1 tin black beans

250g cooked brown rice (use a pack of pre-cooked rice as a shortcut)

half onion finely chopped 

1 tbsp flour (any kind, I use brown rice flour)

2 tsp smoked paprika

1 tsp ground cumin

2 tsp garlic powder

half tsp salt

Fresh chopped herbs like Coriander/Parsley (optional)

Fresh chopped Chilli (optional, if you like it spicy)



In a food processor add the rice, onion, flour and spices and blitz until fairly smooth.

Add optional herbs and drained black beans, pulse gently - you just want the beans to break up a bit, but still keep a bit of texture.   Mould into 4 burger shapes (make into a ball then flatten)    Place on a roasting tray lined with baking paper and cook in 180ºc for about 35 minutes until firm and a bit crisp on the edges.    Can be frozen after cooking - freeze flat.

Sweet Potato Wedges:

Sweet Potatoes, washed and quartered (no need to peel), mix in a bowl with 1 or 2 tbsp olive oil, black pepper, 1 or 2 tsp smoked paprika, 1 or 2 tsp dried oregano.    Roast on a tray in the oven 200ºc for between 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending how crispy you like them.   Turn them over with a spatula half way through.    Salt before serving and scatter with fresh herbs (parsley, coriander etc) if you want them to look fancy!
