Packed full of nutritious goodness, our super tasty veggie burgers are stuffed with hearty black beans, mushrooms and earthy-sweet beetroot. These speedy patties are blitzed together before being griddled or, weather permitting, seared on the BBQ!

  • Ingredients

    For the patties:
    • 1/2 medium onion, cut into large chunks
    • 1 clove garlic
    • 1 large Portobello mushroom, cut into large chunks
    • 1 small sweet potato, steamed or baked
    • 1/2 tin black beans, drained
    • 1 small beetroot, peeled
    • Zest from 1 lime
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • 1/4 tsp black pepper
    • 2 tbsp plain flour
    • 2 tbsp oats
    To serve:
    • Burger buns
    • Burger sauce
    • Rocket, rinse
  • Method

    For the burgers: 
    • Add the onion, garlic, and mushrooms to your food processor with the blade attachment, and process until finely chopped.
    • Add the sweet potato and black beans, and blitz for about 5-10 seconds.
    • Fit the processor with the large grater attachment and grate beetroots into the mixture. Remove the grater attachment.
    • Add lime zest, salt, pepper, flour and oats and pulse a few times with the blade attachment to combine.
    • Divide mixture into 6 or 8 pieces, depending on the desired patty size, then wet your hands with water and shape each into a patty. Dust each with a bit more flour, then chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
    • To cook the patties, heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Drizzle with olive oil, then arrange the patties in the pan. Reduce heat to medium-low and leave to cook for about 8 minutes. Turn the patties over and cook for another 8 minutes.
    • To serve, spread burger sauce on the bottom half of the burger buns, top with a veggie patty, then top with a good handful of rocket. Spread a little more burger sauce on the top halves of the bun and place on top.
    • Also delicious with classic burger toppings like tomato, pickles, onion and shredded lettuce.
