Think your regular all-beef burger has a lot of protein in it? Well, this veggie alternative is a serious contender not only from the beans, but from the quinoa, too. And the colour from the beetroot makes it a feast for the eyes!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
180ml water
90g quinoa
200g tinned black beans, drained and rinsed
2 cooked beetroots
1 shallot, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
small handful fresh coriander, chopped
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 lime, juiced
2 tablespoons oat flour
2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
2 tablespoons coconut oil
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

To serve

Quantity Ingredient
6 wholewheat buns, toasted
tahini
dried chilli flakes, to season
2 avocados, peeled, pitted and sliced

Method

  1. Put the 180ml water and quinoa in a saucepan, bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15–20 minutes, or until all the water has been absorbed and the quinoa is tender. Leave to cool.
  2. Once the quinoa has cooled, put it in a food processor and add the black beans, beetroots, shallot, garlic, coriander, apple cider vinegar and lime juice. Blitz until smooth. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl and stir in the oat flour and flaxseed. Season to taste. Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions and flatten into fat discs to create your burgers.
  3. Melt the coconut oil in a frying pan over a medium to high heat. Cook each burger for 2–3 minutes on each side.
  4. Serve on toasted wholewheat buns spread with tahini and sprinkled with chilli flakes. Add sliced avocado for a real treat.

Note

  • Flaxseed gives you a double-whammy of fibre because it contains both insoluble and soluble fibre.
