Lean Mean Black Bean Burger

This black bean burger is a healthy burger full of protein, fibre, yummy flavours and packed full of vitamins and minerals. We all know that meat burgers are full of protein and that many people who are uneducated with nutrition would think that anything vegan is missing protein. Unfortunately, they couldn’t be further from the truth. While meat burgers do have protein, they are high in saturated fat, which causes heart problems and high cholesterol.

On the other hand, plant protein is healthy, low in fat and calories, packed full of vitamins and fibre (which you will not find in your meat ones). Plus, they taste so good too. So enjoy making this black bean burger I love cooking often.

  • 2 tins black beans drained and washed
  • 1 cup sweet potato cooked and mashed
  • 1 cup porridge oats not quick-cook
  • 3 tablespoons barbecue sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Vegetarian Worcestershire Vegetarian-style sauce
  • 2 tablespoons pickled jalapenos chopped
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 pinch cracked black pepper
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 large beef tomato slices
  • 1 medium Gherkin or dill pickles, slices
  • 1 dollop ketchup organic
  • 1 medium jalapenos sliced
  • 6 medium buns whole-grain


  • Throw all the burger ingredients (not oats yet) into a food processor and pulse a few times and remember to push the mixture down to make sure it all combines. You want to keep it a little chunky. Add in the oats little by little until the mixture is firm but moist and holds together.
  • Take a handful of the mixture into your hands and form a ball, then gently press down to form burger patties and set onto a baking sheet sprayed with extra virgin and continue until all mixture has been transformed into burgers.
  • Grill in a medium grill for around 15 minutes or until golden brown all over, flipping carefully halfway through.
  • When done, get the buns and add the lettuce, tomatoes, and the cooked patties. Serve and enjoy!
