Bean Burger Patty

If you’re like me and want to swap some of your evening meals with vegetarian options (and still satisfy the meat eaters in the family), then try this gourmet black bean burger patty recipe for a healthier alternative to the traditional meat patty. Mind you, when I say black bean burger, you can choose whatever colour of beans you like.

Each patty starts with a tin of wholesome beans, black in the case of these images, but as I say, the choice is yours! We know beans are rich in fibre, protein, and antioxidants, so does that make them a superfood? I’m going to call it! 😂

Using beans alone can make the texture a bit boring, so I like to blend in a handful of crushed nuts. Walnuts are what I chose this time, but you can choose your favourite! These add a fantastic texture, plus they’re a rich source of healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. Listen to me, being all nutritionist and all. 🤪

To make sure your patties are bursting with flavour, add some fresh garlic, red onion, and parsley. This combination creates a delicious harmony that is sure to excite your taste buds!

Our secret ingredient? A sprinkle of Southern Spice Blend. This enhances the rich, earthy flavours of the beans, elevating the burger to a whole new level of deliciousness. If you don’t have our Spice Blend eBook, you can use whatever blend you love in this recipe. Just do a taste test before you go adding a lot. I sometimes use my Smoky blend, or my Peri Peri blend, or you might start with the this recipe post for my herb blend.

To hold our patty together and provide a great texture, I add panko bread crumbs and a touch of plain flour. Panko crumbs (or any larger dried breadcrumb) will help keep your patties together and make them lighter in texture. Coupled with egg, these ingredients ensure our burgers hold their shape while cooking without compromising on the juicy, soft interior. After all we don’t want a dry patty do we?

And let’s not forget my favourite addition: creamy feta. Its distinctive tangy-salty flavour adds a burst of flavour to the patties. Each patty is then delicately fried with a bit of oil, ensuring a crispy, golden-brown exterior.

These gourmet bean burgers offer you a chance to indulge in your love for burgers guilt-free. So, the next time you’re craving a burger, ditch the meat and go for our bean burger patties. You’ll be amazed at how good they taste! oh, and here are a few recipes for burger buns.

Equipment

  • 1 Thermomix (optional)

Ingredients
  

  • 1 tin of beans. Use either black, white or red. The choice is yours. In the image, I've used black
  • 30 – 40 g Nuts I used walnut but use what you like
  • 1 clover garlic
  • 10 g fresh parsley
  • 40 g red onion about a 1/4
  • 100 g Feta
  • 2 tsp of Southern Spice Blend or use what you like but use it you need it.
  • 60 g panko bread crumbs you can use your own bread crumbs if you like but this works better if you dry them first
  • 10 g plain flour
  • 1 egg
  • Oil for cooking.

Instructions
 

For Thermomix owners

  • Start by washing and draining your beans.
  • Weigh the nuts into the TM bowl and chop for 3 seconds at speed 8, then set aside.
  • Drop the garlic into a dry TM bowl (it’s fine if there are some nut crumbs left) and chop for 3 seconds at speed 5.
  • Add the parsley into the TM bowl and chop for 3 seconds at speed 5.
  • Weigh the onion into the TM bowl and chop for 5 seconds at speed 5.
  • Weigh the feta into the TM bowl.
  • Add your preferred spice blend to the TM bowl.
  • Weigh in your bread crumbs.
  • Add in approximately 2 teaspoons of flour.
  • Add in the egg.
  • Finally, add the drained beans and mix to combine. Mix for 10 seconds at speed 3.5, scrape and lift, then repeat for another 10 seconds at speed 3.5.
  • Allow the mixture to rest for 5-10 minutes.
  • Heat up a frying pan or grill. When it’s hot, spray the patty on both sides with oil to prevent it from sticking. Cook for about 4 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown. Serve warm on toasted buns.

For non-Thermomix owners:

  • Start by washing your beans then allow them to drain while you get on with the rest of the recipe
  • Finely chop the nuts and set them aside in a large mixing bowl.
  • Chop your garlic fairly fine or crush place in the bowl with the nuts.
  • Chop your parsley fine add to the bowl.
  • Chop your onion, you want it pretty fine. Add to the bowl
  • Crumble the feta cheese into the mixing bowl.
  • Add your chosen spice blend.
  • Add the bread crumbs.
  • Add in approximately 2 teaspoons of flour.
  • Add in the egg.
  • Finally, add the drained beans and using a fork or a potato masher to mash the beans then mix everything well to combine.
  • Allow the mixture to rest for 5-10 minutes.
  • Heat up a frying pan or grill. When it’s hot, spray the patty on both sides with oil to prevent it from sticking. Cook for about 4 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown. Serve warm on toasted buns.

Notes

Tip for Thermomix users when chopping garlic:
For a more consistent chop, it’s best to use a dry Thermomix bowl when chopping garlic. In this recipe, the garlic is first on its own. This method is used because if the parsley, which is often wet from washing, is added at the same time as the garlic, it can cause uneven chopping.
Chunks of garlic may stick to the sides of the bowl due to the moisture from the parsley, resulting in an uneven distribution of garlic throughout your mix. By chopping the garlic first in a dry bowl and then adding the parsley, we can ensure a more evenly chopped and distributed garlic in your recipe.
