Black Bean And Mushroom Burgers

Burgers always feel like a treat, even if there’s plenty of goodness in them. These Blackbean and Mushroom Burgers taste great, and can be made slightly ahead of time and kept in the fridge until you’re ready to cook them.

Serves: 4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 x 400g tins of black beans, drained
  • 2 Portobello mushrooms, finely chopped with stems removed
  • ½ red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 large handful of baby spinach
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 120g breadcrumbs
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 ½ tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp dried coriander
  • ½ tsp dried chilli flakes
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil, for cooking
  • 4 slices of cheese (optional)
  • 4 burger buns or baps
To serve:
  • Taco sauce
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato

Top Tip: Black beans can be found in specialty and health food shops. If you can’t find them, just use pinto beans or mixed beans instead.

Instructions

1. Place half of the beans in a medium bowl and mash until smooth. Add the remaining black beans whole, along with the mushrooms, onions, baby spinach, egg whites, breadcrumbs, garlic, cumin, coriander, chilli flakes, salt and pepper. Use clean hands to mix everything together until well combined, then let the mixture sit for five minutes.

2. Form the mixture into four burger patties.

3. Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium heat. Cook the burgers for 4-5 minutes on each side. When almost ready, add a slice of cheese to each burger, if desired, and let it melt.

4. Place the patties on buns and serve with taco sauce, lettuce and tomato slices.
