This is a great recipe for a weeknight dinner, it’s fast to make and very hearty. Full of herbs and spices and a wonderful substitute for mince meat, which is very hard to digest to say the least.
I gave these to my burger eating friends and they loved them! Black beans are good for maintaining your bone health, blood pressure, blood sugar, heart disease, healthy digestion and even weight loss. They are also high in fibre, anti-oxidants, protein, amino acids and various vitamins!

Cooking Black Beans: I normally pre-plan my meals and like to make beans from scratch. I sort and wash them before soaking them overnight in a large container. Cooking them in a pressure cooker for 30 Minutes or on the hob for a few hours. Add in olive oil, cloves and bay leaves. Salt to be added after completely cooked.
If you are using canned beans that is fine too, just check the label to make sure there are no unusual additives and drain before use.
Ingredients: (Made 8 Patties)
- 1.5 cups Cooked Black Beans
- 1 cup Fresh diced Coriander
- 1tsbp Tahini Paste
- 1tbsp Quinoa Flour
- To Taste; Salt, Pepper, Paprika, garlic powder
- Coconut oil for cooking
- 8 Peeled stalkless Portobello mushrooms
- Plant based cheese (coconut oil and pea protein based)
- Mash the beans with a fork
- Add in the remaining ingredients and combine till smooth (not the mushroom)
- Add in some water if needed
- Shape the mixture into patties and place into the fridge for at least 10 minutes
- Place them onto a silpat sheet and glaze with coconut oil, do the same with the mushrooms, if you want it super crispy you can fry it flipping until browned or dehydrate as instructed
- Lay the cheese onto the burgers and grill for 5 more minutes
- Assemble anyway you wish
- Serve with a fresh and crunchy side salad or in Gluten Free Buns with some lovely sauerkraut !
