Ingredients

  • 1 tin black beans (400 g)
  • 1 red pepper
  • ½ red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup breadcrumbs
  • teaspoon salt
  • teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon freshly chopped parsley
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil for frying

Instructions

  • Drain the liquid from the can of beans, then give a quick rinse and add them to a bowl together with the rest of the ingredients (except for oil).
  • Blend everything together until you get a rough paste, then form 3 patties, and let them chill in the fridge for about 20 minutes so they can firm up.
  • Add the oil to a pan or grill pan, and fry the burgers on both sides for about 2 minutes or so until lightly brown.
  • Serve between a burger bun with tomatoes and salad of your choice.

Notes

  • Since we can't use eggs to bind them together, we need to add some veggies to the burgers. The veggies will have enough moisture to keep them together.
  • Also, it's super important to blend the mixture well, the smoother the paste, the better the burgers hold their shape.
  • Now, the texture of the burgers is nothing like the one of a regular meat burger. Although the burgers firm up and hold a nice shape, they are pretty soft when you have a bite, so not to be worried about that.
