Beans are a popular base in easy vegan burger recipes; they are full of protein and fibre, but they are definitely bland, so it really is up to you to bring the FLAVOUR!
We have featured a couple of vegan black bean burger recipes and other bean burger recipes, because beans are especially good in burgers, given their firm texture and nutty flavour.

- Dice the red onion and sundried tomatoes and add to the bowl.
- Next, add the oats, eggs, salt, cumin, paprika, olive oil. Give it a good stir.
- Finally, add the breadcrumbs a little at a time until you’re left with a nice, firm mixture. If you don’t need to use all the breadcrumbs, that’s totally fine.
- Mould the mixture into burger patties. Wet your hands if it’s too sticky.
- Fry in a little oil in a pan, or place on a BBQ/grill. Cook for about 5 minutes on each side, turning occasionally. Serve with your favourite burger ingredients – a bun, lettuce, tomato, cheese – whatever you fancy!
