Black Bean Quinoa Burgers

“Meaty”, sturdy, packed full of spices and herbs – these burgers are as satisfying as they are delicious, as well as simple to make and totally foolproof. I hate nothing more than a sloppy veggie patty that tastes more like mush than anything else when smooshed into a bun. These burgers, on the other hand, go crispy around the edges and stay wonderfully tender in the middle.

How to Make it

  • Place ¾ of the beans into your food processor and pulse a few times to create a thick paste.
  • Place all the ingredients into a large bowl (except the flaxseed and water).
  • Mix together the flaxseed and water and leave to set for 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, mix the rest of the ingredients together. You can season the mixture to taste at this point.
  • Add the “flax egg” to the rest of the ingredients, mixing well to combine.
  • Form the mixture into 3 or 4 patties.
  • Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).
  • Fry the burgers in a large pan over a medium heat with 1 tbsp of avocado oil.
  • Cook for 2 minutes on each side and then place the pan into the oven for 8 - 10 minutes; until the burgers are nice and crispy all the way around the edges and lightly browned.
  • Serve as desired. They are also delicious served in a bowl, on a bed of roasted veggies tossed through some fresh mixed leaves of choice. A dollop of vegan mayo or dairy-free yogurt on top never goes amiss, either...
