- Hearty. Thick, packed with black beans and topped with juicy, crunchy veggies, these burgers cross are so satisfying, vegans, and omnivores unite!
- Delicious! Balsamic vinegar adds a depth of flavor, while the garlic and smoked paprika provide a wonderfully seasoned kick to the black bean burger mix.
- An easy burger recipe. Whiz the ingredients up in a blender and cook for 8 mins – less than 20 mins from the pantry to table.
- Be careful not to over-process the burger mix into a paste, some chunky texture is welcomed!
- When cooking the patties, if any bits fall from the sides as you flip, press them back into the sides of the patty.
- When toasting the buns in a pan, move them around while they toast, to avoid burning, you just want them a little crispy.
- To ensure that the black bean burgers don’t fall apart, drain the beans thoroughly to remove as much liquid from them as possible.
- For a lighter lunch, skip the bun and eat on a salad. Still super filling!
- When using a BBQ sauce, make sure it's vegan and does not contain honey.
