Cajun’Kno black bean burgers

SERVES: 12  TIME: 1 hr 30 mins

No BBQ is complete without a mouthwatering burger. For our Good Grills Gone Bad supper club we wanted to make just that, but we often find vegan burgers can be really processed to get that ‘meat-like’ feel. We wanted ours to be au naturel in the veg department. We achieved a great hearty texture and flavour by using black beans as the base. You can get these in any supermarket and they feature heavily in Latin American dishes.

Have a go at the recipe you little spice..

  1. Dice the onion, pepper and garlic then fry in 2 tablespoons of olive oil over a medium heat.
  2. Add your spices to the mix and stir for another few minutes.
  3. Take this off the heat while you get down to your beans. Drain and rinse each can and then chuck it in the food processor with a tablespoon of water. Smush that up until you get a chunky puree.
  4. Mix the beans in a big bowl with your cooked onion and pepper mix and chuck in the chopped parsley. It should be a good sort of squishy consistency that holds its shape.P1000632
  5. Portion into 12 and form patties with your hands. Chill that in the fridge for as long as you want – we did ours the night before.
  6. When you are ready to serve fry each patty for about 3 minutes on each side then blitz in the oven for 15 minutes on 180c. While these are in the oven you can assemble your burgers.P1000721
  7. Lay the bottom of the burger on a surface and smooth a big dollop of sauce onto it, vegan aioli or BBQ sauce is always a winner. Chuck on a handful of bistro leaves and then slice the tomato and onion and layer up. Once your patties are ready to go you can place these on the top, add a generous dollop of coleslaw, lid on, gherkin skewered and out to your adoring fans!
